Queen Charlotte Track: Anakiwa to Mistletoe Bay

The final leg of the Queen Charlotte Track makes for a great stand-alone ride.

  • QCT BIKE (127 Of 227)
  • QCT (2 Of 11)

Start at Anakiwa and ride to Davies Bay (Umangata Bay) before returning, or push on further to Mistletoe Bay for either a return cycle trip or to catch a boat back to your car.

Alternatively, catch a water taxi transfer from Picton to Mistletoe Bay and bike to Anakiwa, catching a return boat to Picton.




2 hours - a whole day. Great for a picnic or swim along the way.

Track Pass

A portion of the track beyond Davies Bay crosses private land, so you'll need to carry a Track Pass, available for purchase from the Picton, Blenheim and Havelock isite Visitor Information Centres.

Shared Pathway Etiquette

1. Keep left.
2. Cyclists should let pedestrians know when they are approaching by politely calling out or ringing a bell when approaching from behind.
3. Cyclists should pass on the right, when possible – unless the pedestrians are on the right in which case pass them in the safest way possible.
4. Cyclists should ride defensively and cycle at a speed that does not put others at risk.
