Queen Charlotte Drive itinerary

Cullen Point Lookout

View of Pelorus Sound from Cullen Point Lookout on Queen Charlotte Drive View of Pelorus Sound from Cullen Point Lookout on Queen Charlotte Drive

The day starts with a bang. Within fifteen minutes of the Havelock turnoff to Queen Charlotte Drive you have the first of many lookouts. Cullen Point Lookout with its views of Pelorus / Te Hoiere Sound. From the Cullen Point Lookout you are travelling the coastal route of the Mahakipawa Arm of the Pelorus Sound with little bays, coves and inlets swinging into view. Mahakipawa is too shallow to be used by other than small trailer boats. The inlet has a number of holiday homes with private access to the emerald green water, often paths leading to a boat shed.

TIP

A wonky sign, bent and slightly faded states, ‘Lookout’ pull over and park. The view is brilliant, breathtaking and it’s the Marlborough Sounds.
