Things to do in Picton with a Hire Car1. Interislander Ferry Terminal.
Being home to the Ferry Terminal means that Picton can open up the doorway for either Island in New Zealand. The Ferry between the two Islands will carry passengers and vehicles. If you have a rental car, however, in most instances, the rental vehicle will not travel on the Ferry, but a replacement vehicle will be available from the Ferry Terminal in either Picton or Wellington depending on which way you travel. Check out the Terms and Conditions for the vehicle before you travel.
2. Charter a Boat
Picton is a picturesque waterfront location, and the surrounding Marlborough Sounds is home to a mixture of activities for both land or sea. Leave the rental car on dry land as a boat charter will provide a wonderful day of exploring and enjoying the beauty of the sea. Don't be surprised if a pod of dolphins appear beside your boat or one of the many sea creatures that call this little part of earth, home.
3. Shop for supplies
Being the biggest commercial port in Marlborough, Picton is a great place to stock up on supplies before traveling further south. It is common to see a campervan stocking up in Picton, or hikers and bush walkers. Pack the hire car up with all your necessities and you can drive the South Island in style.
4. Lochmara Lodge Marlborough Sounds Wildlife Recovery Centre
A popular hiking and bicycle track, the Queen Charlotte track and the views are truly as majestic as it's name. Little can compare to the feeling of being outdoors and when you are spoiled with an ecosystem like ours, there is little to no excuse for not enjoying it. Leave the rental car behind and take up the tracks. Be sure to let someone know that you will be out on the track and when you estimate getting back so that you can be sure to be safe should the weather get rough but delve into the hidden gem that is the Queen Charlotte Track. We believe it is one of the best kept beauties in the world and you will too.
PICTON - The doorway to the South Island of New Zealand
Kick start your South Island holiday in comfort by jumping in a rental car from Picton. With a hire car, you can explore the wonderful scenery and breathtaking beauty that the South Island of New Zealand has to offer.
When hiring a car to travel between both Islands, the agent will not allow the vehicle to be taken on the Inter Islander Ferry. Some suppliers will allow you to drop a car at the Wellington Ferry Terminal and collect a car from the Picton Terminal, and place it under one booking. There are terms and conditions when doing this so please ensure you understand what is required.
Not just wine and fine dining,
Talk of the Malborough Region of New Zealand can often times result in talk of fine wine or the beautiful cliffs, channels, and thriving sea- life. There is no doubting that it is a premier wine district but this area is also home to some of the most beautiful and picturesque scenery. Picton which lies on the shores of the Marlborough Sounds is a gateway of discovery.
This old whaling community is set between the hills and the gentle water of the sounds. Picton was a whaling community in its past and a trip to Picton Museum will let you travel back into this time. Tranquility is on tap and unwinding is made easy.
A perfect place to collect your hire car after disembarking the Wellington Ferry, to begin your discovery of the Marlborough Region and to uncover your piece of South Island Heaven.
We will be happy to answer any queries you have regarding a vehicle from Picton. We will also help you with booking a car to go between islands. Helping you is what we are all about.
