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.

Rarangi to Whites Bay

Rarangi to Whites Bay is a scenic walking track connecting the popular Whites Bay beach, and the small settlement of Rarangi.

The walk climbs up from Rarangi near Monkey Bay track, before following the road, then descending down through a pine forest into Whites Bay.

DOC campsites are located at both Rarangi and Whites Bay, a great place to spend a couple of nights. 


Follow State Highway 1 to Tua Marina (9km north of Blenheim). Turn off at Tua Marina and continue through to Rarangi, stopping at the car park at the base of the hill beside the sea.
