Marlborough Historical Adventure
The Cook, The Fox and the Magic Karaka
The Marlborough Sounds was considered such a perfect place to rest crew and make repairs to ships, that Captain James Cook made five visits for a total of 171 days. To help you experience similar to the crew of the Endeavour, here’s an historical package which includes your own four-hour visit to Ship Cove by boat. You’ll also get to see the last surviving convict transport ship to Australia; the Edwin Fox. The history of this ship will astound you with it being more world travelled than your average backpacker. Maori history is an important part of Picton and a visit to the magic Karaka Point presents a defensive settlement with remains of battlements and buildings on a beautiful peninsula which juts out into Queen Charlotte Sound. To cap it all off, you’ll stay two nights in what was the Bank of New Zealand in 1902; now the luxury Escape to Picton accommodation and restaurant.
