Magnificent Picton

The Picturesque seaside town of Picton is the gateway to the South Island and the heart of the Marlborough Sounds.

Built around a very sheltered harbour, the town has an attractive seafront dotted with Cafes, Restaurants, Galleries and Specialty Shops.

There is the Edwin Fox Maritime Museum and an Aquarium. Local operators can take you Cruising, Fishing, Dolphin and Whale Watching, Sea Kayaking or Mountain Biking.

The Queen Charlotte Track is a major local attraction which you can conquer either by foot or mountain bike.

Explore the amazing famous Marlborough Wineries or take a leisurely walk through the beautiful Native Bush.

Picton used to be a place to catch the ferry, now Picton has become a destination in its own rights.
