“The thing I love about Marlborough, which you see when you cycle it, is the diversity of the landscape. We’ve got high country like up the Awatere Valley, then the Richmond Range, the Marlborough Sounds and all the rivers. Personally I’m an open country, high country farm sort of person. I love getting up in the hills.”

My insider guide to Marlborough

Pelorus Bridge Scenic Reserve

Plunge into the Pelorus River between Havelock and Rai Valley for a taste of pure New Zealand.

The river is crystal clear and blessed with deep pools for swimming, and has the added attraction of being the location of the dwarves-in-barrels scene from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
