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.

Richmond Range walks

**Pine Valley Road is open. However, the ford crossing into Mill Flat campsite is impassable and is closed. Pine Valley Track and Mt Fishtail Route is open.**

The Richmond Range is a fantastic place for day walks and overnight missions, with a myriad of tracks accessed off the Mt Richmond Forest Park. Expect some steep climbs to reach exposed peaks like Mt Fishtail, Mt Royal and Mt Richmond. There are plenty of DOC huts for multi day missions, including Foster’s Clearing and Devils Creek.

To get to these Richmond Range walks, turn off State Highway 6, just north of the Wairau River Bridge, 16 km from Blenheim.

Logging can sometimes close the roads, so check with the Department of Conservation (DOC).
