Walk Camp Bay to Torea Saddle

Climb out of Camp Bay to Kenepuru Saddle and follow the ridge separating Queen Charlotte Sound from Kenepuru Sound. Make sure you stop and take in the magnificent views here.

DM S F Sounds Couple Walk (136)

One of the best views in the Marlborough Sounds is Eatwell's Lookout. It's a short steep climb, but the views are rewarding beyond belief. Make sure you've got a camera on-hand to capture the views beside the legendary signpost at the lookout, and hashtag #MarlboroughNZ on your social media shares from the lookout - you'll be dying to share the view with everyone back home.

Above Bay of Many Coves and Kumutoto Bay are two Department of Conservation (DOC) campsites with water, toilets and a cooking shelter.

If you’re looking for a slice of luxury, turn off for a night at Bay of Many Coves Resort - the extra walk will be surely be worth it.

Back on track, you’ll descend to Torea Saddle between Portage and Torea Bay. There is a DOC campsite at Cowshed Bay, as well as lodges and homestays around Portage.

As parts of this section cross over private land, you'll need to purchase a QCTLC Pass from the Picton, Blenheim or Havelock isite Visitor Information centres beforehand.
