Things to do in Picton with a Hire Car

1. 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

With such a long name you would expect big things here and if your a nature lover, then that's just what you will get. The centre allows visitors to interact with bird species and geckos and be inspired by the fauna and flower species located in the Marlborough Sounds. Ample parking is available for rental cars.

5. The Queen Charlotte Track

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.
