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.

Grovetown Lagoon walk

The 750-metre Steam Wharf Track at Grovetown Lagoon is thanks to the hard work of a band of volunteers determined to protect Marlborough’s wetlands.

The track is the only means of accessing Grovetown Lagoon - one of the few remaining wetlands of its type in the region, and rich with birdlife.

The track, at the end of Steam Wharf road, Grovetown, is the first step in a larger plan to create a walkway around the entire perimeter of the lagoon.
