Activities in the Marlborough Region
Situated in the unspoiled, sunny, north-eastern corner of the South Island, Marlborough is one of New Zealand’s most popular destinations for recreational pursuits, where visitors can also savour fine foods and award-winning wines no matter what time of the year they visit. Marlborough is a spectacular place to holiday, all year round.
With its coastal retreats, rivers, mountains and rural plains, Marlborough provides a ready escape from the pressures of city living. Take the opportunity to go fishing, sailing, diving, swimming, kayaking, tramping or hunting, then enjoy the warm hospitality at any of Marlborough’s dining establishments.
