Marlborough is a region in the north east of New Zealand’s South Island. The region is famous for its production of Sauvignon Blanc and is the largest wine growing region in New Zealand.
Marlborough is also known for its breathtaking scenery. The highest peak in the area is called “Tapuae-o-Uenuku” which translated from Maori means, “Footprint of the Rainbow”; it can be seen from a lot of the coast around the area. The region is also home to the Queen Charlotte track which can be walked or cycled and offers magnificent panoramas of the Marlborough Sounds.
Take to the Sounds and discover the local wildlife either by boat, kayak or canoe. If you’re lucky you may spot one of the several species of dolphin that call the sounds home or maybe you’ll see little blue penguins, fur seals or the native kiwi.
