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.
