The sunny region of Marlborough Sounds is located at the top of the South Island of New Zealand and occupies one fifth of the country’s total coastline. It is made up of four individual sounds all linked together. Geographically it has steep wooded hills and many small, quiet bays, all to be enjoyed on a New Zealand vacation.

The best known and visited sound on a New Zealand vacation is the Queen Charlotte Sound. With its Queen Charlotte Track, one of nature’s wonderlands along which one can hike and experience stunning coastal views as well as historic landmarks plus a variety of wildlife. Other activities on New Zealand tours available here are climbing and mountain biking.

Marlborough Sounds is also home to New Zealand’s award-wining wine region which produces world class Sauvignon Blanc. One can enjoy a tour of the local wineries.
Picton is situated at the head of the Queen Charlotte Sound and is the starting point for the ferry service across the Cook Strait to Wellington on the North Island. It is a small, picturesque seaport built around a sheltered harbour with an attractive seafront dotted with cafes, restaurants and a number of arts and crafts centres.
