Gateway for travellers between
the North and South Islands
Close to the head of Queen Charlotte Sound, Picton is the arrival and departure point for what has been rated as ‘one of the most beautiful ferry rides in the world’. While all the attractions of the wider Marlborough and Nelson regions beckon, Picton is also a wonderful place to go exploring from. Within this maze of forest-fringed inland waterways that make up a 6th of New Zealand’s coastline, you can choose from many options to be on the water, or walk the famous Queen Charlotte Track.
Mountains and ocean come
astonishingly close on this journey between Christchurch and Picton.
