With so much to do in Marlborough why not stay another day?
While wine touring is a major focus for many of our guests, Marlborough has a lot to offer.
The Beautiful Marlborough Sounds
Guests have enjoyed a day going out on the Marlborough Sounds and enjoying a walk along the Queen Charlotte Track. You are taken to one point along the track and picked up at a pre-arranged point. Antria is a 20 minute drive from Picton it is easy to get to the water taxis for the ride out.
Why not take the Mussel Cruise from Havelock out on the Pelorous Sound. Enjoy fresh mussels straight from the sea and steamed on the boat and washed down with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. This is an afternoon cruise so you have time to look around Havelock and enjoy a lunch by the Marina before departure.
The Aviation Heritage is a must see for anyone with the remotest interest in aviation from the First World War. With one of the best collections of WW I memorabilia anywhere it is truly a world class Museum. This will take you a good couple of hours and for the car enthusiast you can visit the Classic Cars collection next door. Designed following the filming of lord of the Rings by set designers from the films you can see Sir Peter Jackson’s influence throughout.
Molesworth Historic High Country Station
Enjoy a full day tour into the beautiful Marlborough rural back country, discover the fabulous unspoiled scenery, see towering mountains and rolling farmland.
Hear about the rich farming history, and stories of another generation, visit the original Molesworth cob cottage where the first pioneer sheep farmers lived, visit a modern shearing shed for smoko, with home cooked treats
Pelorus Eco Adventure
What a great way to spend an afternoon kayaking down the Pelorus river with Shane or one of his team making sure you do not miss anything along the way. For followers of the Hobbit you take the same journey that Bilbo and his Dwarf Friends took. It’s not all about the Hobbit and the couple of hours spent on the river is pretty spectacular.
