ABOUT MARLBOROUGH

Marlborough has 20% of New Zealand’s coastline

woven through the beautiful Marlborough Sounds. The Marlborough Sounds is largely untouched and can be explored by boat, bike, car, helicopter or plane, with island bird sanctuaries, secluded bays, protected wildlife, luxury lodges and the famous Queen Charlotte Track.

It was officially New Zealand’s sunniest region for 2015

averaging an extra two days’ worth of sunshine every week than New Zealand’s main centres.

A bit of history:

Wairau Boulder Bank was New Zealand’s first known Polynesian settlement site in the late 1200s AD and Ship Cove in the Marlborough Sounds was home to some of the first European settlers.

It is New Zealand’s largest wine region

producing 77% of its grape supply, with three distinct grape-growing sub-regions – the Southern Valleys, Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley. With 151 wineries and 581 grape growers, Sauvignon Blanc is its flagship grape variety, but it also produces world class, fruit forward Pinot Noir
