Itinerary
DAY 1: ARRIVE CHRISTCHURCH
On arrival into Christchurch make your way to your hotel for the first night of your mini getaway.  Quest Christchurch offers a central location close to restaurants, New Brighton Street, The Crossing and the newly developed Riverside Markets.  

DAY 2: CHRISTCHURCH TO PICTON
This morning is an early start getting to railway station for your departure on the Coastal Pacific.  Take in the opportunity to soak in the beautiful countryside heading north in the wine region of Wairarapa, along the coastline of Kaikoura and into Blenheim, the true heart of wine growing in New Zealand, famous for Sauvignon Blanc.  A short distance from there you’ll arrive into Picton, the gateway to the Marlborough sounds.  Overnight at the Picton Yacht Club, just a short stroll from Waikawa  Bay Marina and the picturesque Picton township with shopping and dining options. 

DAY 3: PICTON 
Getting out into the Sounds today is the goal and Cougar Line is on hand to assist.  Sit back and relax for a scenic cruise through the Queens Charlotte Sound to a Marlborough Sounds resort for a sumptuous lunch. You will get to choose from Furneaux Lodge or Punga Cove in the stunning Endeavour Inlet. After lunch you will be picked up for a relaxing boat ride home.

DAY 4: DEPART PICTON
This morning check out of your accommodation and head home.  If you want to extend your trip consider taking the Interislander ferry across to Wellington or hire a car to explore more of the Top of the South.
