Getting to Picton
If you’re coming to Picton from elsewhere in the South Island of New Zealand, you have a choice of routes.
State Highway 1 starts in Bluff and runs all the way up the east coast, going through Invercargill, Dunedin, Oamaru, Timaru, Christchurch, Kaikoura and Blenheim.
If you prefer the West Coast, State Highway 6 starts in Invercargill, and goes through Queenstown, Wanaka, Fox Glacier, Franz Joseph Glacier, Hokitika, Greymouth, Punakaiki, Westport, Nelson and Havelock.
If you’re coming from the North Island, there are several different routes through the island. Once you arrive in Wellington, you can bring your car across the Cook Strait by ferry.
There are two companies that have ferries running several times a day between Wellington and Picton. They cater for motor vehicles, foot passengers and freight.
As you relax on the deck of your unit, you will be able to see the ferries passing by.
Over the summer months, many cruise ships also come into Picton.
Local airline Sounds Air flies between Picton and Wellington 3 or 4 times a day during the winter and more often during the summer. Sounds Air also service other small centres such as Blenheim, Nelson, Taupo and Paraparaumu. The 20 minute flight between Picton and Wellington is often a stunning experience.
Our national airline, Air New Zealand, doesn’t fly into Picton. But if you are planning on hiring a car, they fly into Blenheim, which is only 20 minutes drive from Picton.
