Blenheim

The lovely, sunny town of Blenheim is in the Marlborough region, in the north-east of the South Island. It takes nearly four hours to drive the 309km between Blenheim and Christchurch – a beautiful drive through rolling hills of 'wine country'. The seaport of Picton is 28km away, the gateway to the Marlborough Sounds, Wellington and the North Island.

Over the years, Blenheim offered a safe harbour to explorers such as Captain Cook and Dumont d'Urville. Nowadays travellers from New Zealand and the rest of the world visit Blenheim to enjoy its wine industry, gourmet foods, Marlborough Sounds and activities such as golf, fishing, kayaking and water sports. more

Blenheim, one of the sunniest towns in New Zealand, has an average of 2,500 sunshine hours every year. The hot, relatively dry summers and crisp winters are perfect for visitors as well as for growing the grapes destined for the internationally renowned Sauvignon Blanc.

Central Blenheim is best explored by foot, with an abundance of great cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries, along with popular walkways along the Taylor River Reserve.

On the second Saturday in February each year, the annual Wine Marlborough festival showcases the region's wines and over 20 local Blenheim wineries open their cellar doors all year round. Taking a cycling tour around the wineries is popular and local parks and the Wither Hills offer attractive walks.

The town offers some lovely accommodation options including: bed and breakfast and winery accommodation, backpackers, holiday homes, hotels and motor lodges.
