Get to know Marlborough step by step, via walking tracks to alpine peaks, golden trails on working farms and native bush walks in the Marlborough Sounds.

Marlborough walks can be as challenging as Mount Tapuae-o-Uenuku, as beautiful as the Queen Charlotte Track and as relaxing as the Taylor River reserve.

Whether you’re hiking for a day or a week, staying in a tent, hut or lodge, you’ll love the pace of Marlborough.

The Link Pathway

The link Pathway, a 42km walking and cycling trail, began in 2005 to connect Havelock, Picton, Anakiwa and the end of the Queen Charlotte Track in Marlborough. Four sections of abandoned historic birdle path was re-discovered which had been constructed over 150 years ago, adding significant heritage to the pathway.

Take in the impressive views of the Marlborough Sounds and native bush and complete the track in one go or in sections. The maps provided below show how the trail can be completed in sections. (Some sections are yet to be completed).
