Commanding the northern-most tip of the country's South Island, New Zealand's Marlborough region is the perfect paradox of wild beauty and manicured human presence. Blessed with year-round sun, landmarks including the epic Marlborough Sounds and (of course) the world-famous winemaking industry, we are struggling to think of a reason not to visit. When travelling from the North Island, a three-hour ferry crossing departing from Wellington will get you to Picton. The town is a gateway to the extensive network of coastal waterways, peninsulas and islands that make up the iconic north coast of the South Island.
Passing Queen Charlotte Sound on your way to the docks is a wonderful induction to the wild beauty of this area. Created through a combination of land subsidence and rising sea levels, Sounds are chains of sea-drowned valleys that create a thrillingly elemental landscape. Don't miss the chance to see Marlborough Sounds, the most famous of the sounds, while you are in the area.
