The Marlborough Region is located at the north-eastern tip of the South Island. It’s well known for its winemaking industry, and the Marlborough Sounds, an extensive network of coastal waterways, peninsulas and islands. Between the smaller sounds of Queen Charlotte and Kenepuru, the 70km Queen Charlotte Walking Track takes in coastal forest, coves and inlets, and skyline ridges. Marlborough enjoys high sunshine hours and a temperate climate so that visitors can experience all of Marlborough’s diversity through the season. No matter what time of year.
