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.

Mt Stokes Track

Walk to a saddle overlooking Anakoha Bay and Forsyth Island, then climb on up through mountain bush to Mt Stokes, the highest point in the Marlborough Sounds. The tramping track follows a ridge to a clearing at the 1,203m summit.

To get to the walk, turn off Queen Charlotte Drive and onto Kenepuru Road at Linkwater and drive 41 km.
