Guide

Walks

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.

Queen Charlotte Track day walks

Take a bite of the 70km long Queen Charlotte Track on a day walk. You can set out from Anakiwa and walk to Davies Bay and back, or walk to the Mistletoe Bay Eco Village for a water taxi pick up.

For a longer stretch, walk 20km to Lochmara Lodge. Alternatively, talk to boat operators who can drop you at one point of the track in the morning, and pick you up from another in the afternoon.
