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.

Wither Hills Farm Park

The Wither Hills Farm Park offers a brilliant range of walking and mountain biking tracks on a 1,100ha working sheep and cattle farm just minutes from Blenheim's CBD. 

The Wither Hills provide an iconic backdrop to Blenheim and the Wairau Valley, and are the perfect place for a short or long walk, up to the lookouts with panoramic views of Cloudy Bay, or along the base of the hills for a more gentle stroll.

With a myriad of trails from tree filled valleys, to open grassy hilltops, this is a fantastic spot to take a picnic and watch the world go by.
