We had lovely views coming into Picton in the early morning. We had heavy rain later but would try a boat trip on a better day.

I dont want to leave. This place is beautiful. The blue waters, the marine life, the tiny little villages isolated from the world and only accessible by boat. I love it!!

Picton is a lovely place. We went on a boat trip round the Sounds, it is very beautiful. Saw some seals playing which was very cool:

Limited mobility, it is easier to see, and experience Picton if you tour by boat. We arrived in Picton coming on the ferry from Wellington ie North to South island.

The sounds are so beautiful, whether you are walking, cycling or on the water cruising, fishing or on a water taxi. If you come to NZ this is a must do location.

We did the walk after unseasonable wet weather and it was quite slippy in places (clay) it is very up and down but we thoroughly enjoyed it and if you walk a lot you will be fine and can take it at your own pace. We are... More

We stayed at the awful Brydon Accomodations in Blenheim, which I can't recommend! There were some nice wineries in the area, if I was returning I would look at one of those.
