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.

Picton walks

There are a number of walks from the Victoria Domain in Picton, from 10 minutes to several hours. From Picton, walk over the marina bridge to do the lovely Harbour View Track, Bob's Bay walk or even push on to the Snout if you feel more energetic. The Snout Track can also be accessed by driving to the carpark in Victoria Domain.

A must do walk in Picton is Tirohanga Track, a good climb up through stunning bush that offers extensive views of Picton, Waikawa and the Marlborough Sounds. It only takes about 45 minutes to reach the top lookout, before returning the way you came, or heading down the other side and returning through the streets of Picton.
