Tourist attractions in Blenheim

Marlborough Wide

If you enjoy seeing the sites on foot then Marlborough is the place for you. Within Marlborough, walks range from short scenic strolls near Blenheim and Picton to the world famous 67km Queen Charlotte track in the Marlborough Sounds. Alternatively you can enjoy the picturesque scenery from the car with a drive along the Queen Charlotte Road from Picton to Havelock. This would have to be one of New Zealand's most scenic routes. The bush-fringed road winds through to the head of Pelorus Sound and the seaside village of Havelock.

Sightseeing can also be done by boat. There are a number of exciting sightseeing and fishing charters that leave Havelock and Picton. Enjoy the sites as you travel from one secluded bay to the next. Marlborough has not forgotten about those who enjoy more adventurous activities while on holiday. There is sea kayaking, horse riding, mountain biking, surfing and rafting, just to name a few.

The coast drive to Kaikoura in the south of the region is one of the most scenic in New Zealand. Many people will know that Kaikoura is world renown for its whale watching and dolphin encounters.

For your enjoyment and pleasure the friendly team at Ashleigh Court Motel can help in arranging a number of different tours to cater to your needs.
