The Queen Charlotte track is rich in history, stretching 70km from historic Ship Cove through to Anakiwa in the Grove Arm of Queen Charlotte Sound. The track is a unique partnership between the Department of Conservation, Marlborough District Council and private landowners.

The track is home to an array of birdlife from the bellbird/korimako and tūī , to darting piwakawaka/fantail or South Island robin looking to feast on insects on the forest floor.

Suitable for both walkers and mountain bike riders, the track takes 3-5 days to complete walking, or 2-3 days for mountain bikers. More information about Queen Charlotte Track can be found on the DOC website.
