This itinerary has been designed to fit into a shorter New Zealand itinerary featuring Marlborough's two most well-known assets, wine and the Marlborough Sounds.
Kayak the Pelorus River
Discover the beautiful location of the dwarves in a river scene from 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' travelling by kayak in lieu of barrel.
Follow the gold trail
Walk to Devil’s Creek on the Wakamarina trail, retracing the footsteps of gold miners and staying overnight in the DOC hut.
Fresh Marlborough seafood
Marlborough salmon and mussels are available at a range of foodie outlets. Seafood (or more strictly Sounds food) with a crisp ‘chardie’ or ‘sav blanc’ is heaven on earth!
Classic Fighters Airshow
See heritage aviation on display and in the air at the action-packed Classic Fighters Omaka Airshow weekend. Every two years - next is Easter 2019.
Hear the dawn chorus
Wake early in the Marlborough Sounds for a stunning dawn chorus, like that heard by Joseph Banks when he visited Queen Charlotte Sound with Captain Cook.Load More
