DAY 1
Arrival
and Marlborough Magic

Highlights of the day

  • An unparalleled collection and dramatic lifelike scenes of Omaka Aviation Centre is a special Marlborough treat for guests, allow up to half a day immersed in the world of classic aviation
  • Relax into the Marlborough experience and savour the moment, stroll among the vineyards and get ready for tomorrow’s foodie explosion of taste and sensory delight

On arrival discover Blenheim, situated in the heart of wine-growing Marlborough. It is one of the sunniest towns in New Zealand, with an estimated average of 2,438 hours of sunshine a year. Mountains frame the area and trap the summer heat (temperatures over 30°C are quite normal in February and March).  In and around Blenheim you’ll find an array of cafes, restaurants, wineries, bars, shops, artisan food outlets and golf courses along with popular walkways along the Taylor River Reserve.

DAY 3
Marlborough hidden gems

Highlights of the day

  • Check out the travel guide and explore Blenheim’s parks and reserves
  • Spot the birds and wildlife at Wairau Lagoon (self-guided)
  • Queen Charlotte Sound mail boat cruise (add on)

Marlborough outdoors beckons many guests. Consider exploring the heritage wetlands of the Wairau lagoon. The easy flat boardwalk through history among the nesting birds to a picturesque rusting wreck is fascinating. The information plaques describe the birdlife, vegetation and narrate the story of the wreck. At sunrise or sunset there are instagram worthy photo moments.
