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.

Wairau Lagoons Walkway

This easy flat walk is a great way to explore the habitat of the Wairau Lagoons, as well as the rusting hulk of the Waverley wreck, which sits in the mud.

Take a short walk, or do the full 3 hour loop.

How to get there?

To get to the lagoons, drive to the end of Hardings Road, which leaves State Highway 1.5 km south of Blenheim.


Up to 3 hours for the full loop
