Queen Charlotte Track, South Island

A travel blog entry by charmedlife

This is a top pick!

I wake up early to catch the 8am ferry ride from the lovely New Zealand capitol of Wellington, to the picturesque town of Picton. A smooth crossing makes the 3 hour journey absolutely pleasant across beautiful Cook Strait and I am soon in magnificent Marlborough Sound. This is a splendid area at the northeastern tip of the South Island made up of …

Tues 27 Jan - Malborough Sounds Day 2 (Endeavour Bay to Punga Cove) Up at 8am to have bag outside door ready for collection for boat and next destination.

The first hour or so was fairly easy, if freezing cold! We saw the sun break out across the top of Mount Ngauruhoe (aka Mount Doom - used in LOTR), which was pretty spectacular. We had thought about climbing to the top of Mount Doom, but after another ...

Day 11 - Spray, scrabble & sand flies

A travel blog entry by lemonyjo


... are the prows of sunken wakas (canoes). The steep, wooded hills and small quiet bays of the sounds are sparsely populated, as access is difficult. Many of the small settlements and isolated houses are only accessible by boat and Picton is their main port. The sounds were already extensively travelled and partly inhabited by Māori groups before Captain Cook visited them in the 1770s, discovering a plant (Cooks Scurvy Grass) high in vitamin C which helped ...
