Marlborough Sounds

Marlborough Sounds

Located on the northeast point of the South Island, Marlborough Sounds is a coastal area filled with islands and peninsulas and offers some of the most beautiful scenery in all of New Zealand. Even though I live further south in Queenstown, I love visiting this area any chance I get!

Marlborough Sounds is full of fun things to do and amazing places to see, and luckily for you, I’ve put together a collection of blogs that highlight some of my favorite attractions in the area.

I recommend staying here for at least 2 to 3 days, but I usually find myself extending to 4 or 5 days to visit the surrounding towns as well. No matter how long you visit, I’ve got plenty of posts that list my favorite areas and experiences in the Marlborough Sounds.
