Queen Charlotte Track

The Queen Charlotte Track is 73km of spectacular Marlborough Sounds scenery, sweeping ridgetop views, ancient forests, amazing coastal landscapes and hidden fern-fringed coves.

Experiencing the Queen Charlotte Track is easy and convenient with Cougar Line – simply book your place on our boat, tell us where you want to go, and sit back while we take you to the start of this truly unforgettable New Zealand experience. We’ll even carry your bags for you.

Marlborough’s mild climate and high sunshine hours makes the well-formed and highly maintained Queen Charlotte Track the perfect year-round walking and mountain biking destination.

Walk the whole route in three to four days, bike it in two to three, or choose one section and do a day walk with us.
