Queen Charlotte Track

  • Walk amidst New Zealand’s Marlborough Sounds on the Queen Charlotte Track
  • Ship Cove, favourite anchorage of Captain Cook in the 1770s
  • Walk skyline ridges with unsurpassed coastal views amidst forest reserves
  • Bays, inlets, islands and peninsulas rising from turquoise waters
  • Picton, a picturesque harbour town and gateway to this classic track
Walk the Queen Charlotte Track, New Zealand’s most diverse coastal long-distance trail. Steeped in both Maori and European history it meanders over skyline ridges with constant views of the Marlborough Sounds. Lush forested hills rise steeply from the sea with sheltered coves and sandy bays never far away. Ship Cove, where the trail begins, was Captain Cook’s favorite place to anchor in the 1770s and according to Maori legend, these landscapes are the prows of sunken canoes belonging to Aoraki, their sacred ancestor. Pause for a dip in the turquoise waters and enjoy the superb food and the local Marlborough wine, which this area is famous for.
