Located at the top of the South
Island, Marlborough is New Zealand’s largest wine growing region and the home of
world-renowned sauvignon blanc.
Marlborough enjoys high sunshine hours and a
temperate climate so that visitors can experience all of Marlborough’s diversity through
the seasons. No matter what time of year, there is always something going on in
There are over 40 cellar doors in Marlborough, why not take
advantage of a pre-arranged wine tour with a local operator and visit a selection of the
region’s top wine producers. You can map out your own route: self-drive, travel in style
in a chauffeur- driven car or mix your daily exercise and your wine tasting with
a cycle tour. Whichever mode of transport you choose be sure to stop at a winery
restaurant along the way
The Marlborough Sounds are best explored on water, with
a range of cruises and activities from a self-guided kayak excursion to sailing on a
luxury yacht. Get active by swimming with dolphins, diving or fishing in the Sounds.
Hike the length of the Queen Charlotte Track as it winds its way through native forest,
along view filled ridges and beside idyllic coves.
Take a tour into Marlborough
High Country as it stretches down the Pacific Coast towards Kaikoura. Stop at the pink
salt lakes at Lake Grasmere and check out Molesworth Station the largest working farm in
New Zealand. For a real New Zealand experience stay in an historic homestead, take a 4wd
farm tour, try heli-fishing for trout or mountain bike or hike through this remote area.
