Experience Boat Tours in Picton

Best things to do: Picton is the gateway to the Marlborough Sounds and the beauty beyond in the forested hills. Other than your beachcomber cruises, what can you do? Well, there’s always the Marlborough Flyer, a steam train that’ll take you into the lush green countryside. The Edwin Fox Museum offers insights into the 19th-century wooden ship and for those who have the legs, the Tirohanga track is a 6.5 km trek along volcanic terrain. You’ll get some amazing views!

Best time to visit: There’s a good reason for the sleepy feel during the winter months. It's when the snow arrives, especially around August. The best time to visit, and when peak season is in full swing, is between the summer months of December to May. The warm temperatures mean everyone is out and about, so why not join them?
