DAY 1: ARRIVE PICTON
Arrive in Picton and enjoy the scenery of this pretty seaside town. A pre-tour briefing is held today.

Enjoy a short walk on Motuara Island Bird Sanctuary to the lookout – this affords spectacular 360 degree views of the Marlborough Sounds – and see many of New Zealand’s endangered bird species including the South Island Saddleback (Tieke). Arrive late morning at Ship Cove to begin the Queen Charlotte Track. This day is regarded as the premier section of the Queen Charlotte Track. Your walk concludes at the historic Furneaux Lodge.
Distance walked: 15kms
