The Marlborough Sounds at the top
of the South Island are one of the most beautiful and tranquil places in New Zealand. Richly endowed
with jewels of natural beauty, this intricate maze of waterways with its attractive beaches and
lush greenery provides for the perfect nature experience.
Many visitors to Marlborough arrive by ferry through the glorious maze of deep coves and bays
of Tory Channel and Queen Charlotte Sound. Sail, paddle, kayak or motor through this picturesque
maritime area. Fine restaurants and accommodation lodges are scattered throughout the Sound.
