The Queen Charlotte Track with Wilderness Guides NZ

The Queen Charlotte Track in the Marlborough Sounds is known as the finest and most diverse coastal track in New Zealand.
It is located at the top of the South Island, near the famous Marlborough wine region, and is accessed by boat from Picton to the beginning at the scenic and historic reserve of Ship Cove in Queen Charlotte Sound.

This is an iconic historic place, one that is steeped in both Maori and European history, and is a place all New Zealanders should visit.
