Guide

Walks

Get to know Marlborough step by step, via walking tracks to alpine peaks, golden trails on working farms and native bush walks in the Marlborough Sounds.

Marlborough walks can be as challenging as Mount Tapuae-o-Uenuku, as beautiful as the Queen Charlotte Track and as relaxing as the Taylor River reserve.

Whether you’re hiking for a day or a week, staying in a tent, hut or lodge, you’ll love the pace of Marlborough.

Devils Creek walk

Devils Creek is a great walk over trails that once tempted gold miners, to the 6 bunk Devils Creek hut.

You’ll cross a bridge high above Doom Creek before climbing through regenerating and then mature beech forest above the Wakamarina River.

To get to the track, turn off SH6 between Blenheim and Nelson at Canvastown, onto Wakamarina Road. Follow the partly unsealed road 11 km to the carpark.

Note – DOC warns that wasps are present in this area late summer to early autumn, so please carry allergy medication if required.

You can also mountain bike this track.

Length

3.5 hours one way to the hut
