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.

Marfells Beach/Cape Campbell Route

This is a striking piece of coastline crowned with a rugged lighthouse, only accessible on this route at the correct tide.

An unmarked route follows the beach from the eastern end of the Marfells Beach camping area around to Cape Campbell, the southernmost extreme of Cook Strait.

To get to Marfells Beach turn down Marfells Road, 36 km south of Blenheim on State Highway 1.
