About Picton

Picton, on the northern tip of the South Island of New Zealand, is a lovely town within easy reach of the famed Marlborough wine region. As you wander around the small settlement, it's easy to feel like a local. There's a laidback yet genuine welcome from the residents who see just enough cruise ships to not be fazed (or overrun) by them.

Understandably, those stunning views across Queen Charlotte Sound (Totaranui), backdropped by steep mountains, encourage visitors to dial back their stress levels and simply relax in the waterfront park or on the beach.

Picton also has plenty of cafes, galleries and gift shops to keep the wanderers happy.
There's much more to do in the surrounding area, so be sure to check out the hiking trails, water activities and, of course, the wineries.
