Discover the neighborhoods of Picton


The town of Picton enjoys a great location near Queen Charlotte Sound, on New Zealand’s South Island. As the gateway to the popular and stunning Marlborough Sounds, Picton is a great place to spend a few days while visiting that area.

Picton serves as a port for the Cook Strait Interisland ferry system, so getting to the town is relatively easy either by ferry or by air, arriving at the domestic airport. The town can also be reached by bus or car. While in Picton, getting around is relatively easy, even though the town doesn’t have a local bus service. Most of the central locations are about a 30-minute walk from each other, so getting around on foot is very possible.

Most people arrive in Picton with a mission to explore the rest of Queen Charlotte Sound, or get to experience Marlborough Sounds, so resources such as Picton Visitor Information Center and Marlborough Sounds Adventure are sure to come in handy.
