French Pass & D’Urville Island, Marlborough Sounds road trip

Rai Valley Turnoff

Rai Valley @AllTrails Rai Valley @AllTrails

You have travelled from either Nelson / Picton on the major highway connecting the two towns. From Picton you will travel through the picturesque Rai Valley and have a convenience store / grocery / petrol station fill up if necessary. From Picton you have already been spoiled with the charms of the Pelorus River Scenic Reserve. The Reserve is a Marlborough, South Island highlight. Pelorus is a pocket sized gem with a beautiful river, gorges, waterfalls and walks. It is your appetiser for the main event, the signpost for French Pass.


Get out of the car and take a SELFIE of you and sign. It’s an eventful moment, a sign pointing to hills already with the remote mojo feel. And the BEST BIT you get to turn off and find out for yourself.
