Queen Charlotte Track

The Queen Charlotte Track is New Zealand's most diverse coastal walk set in the geologically unique Marlborough Sounds. Stretching from historic Ship Cove to Anakiwa, this undulating trail features remnants of virgin native bush with a sea view around almost every corner.

What to Expect

Coastal Diversity

Here tracts of centuries old virgin native bush mingle with regenerating forest and there is a sea view around almost every corner.

Unique Geology

The Marlborough Sounds is a unique geological feature where the mountains meet the sea in a claw-like network of sunken river valleys, seen best from Eatwells Lookout.

Rich History

There is Maori and European history in abundance including historic Ship Cove, start of the track and where English explorer and navigator Captain Cook made his base in 1770.

Lodge Accommodation

The range of accommodation is impressive and water taxi services with overnight bag transfers means only a day pack is required.
