Discover Picton
The charming town of New Zealand

The launching pad of the famous track along Queen Charlotte Bay

Picton

Picton is an important transportation hub in New Zealand. This is due to its geographical location. It is located in the north of the South Island, and the ferry leaves to the capital of the country through the Cook Strait. Highways and railroads deep into the South Island also begin here. Meanwhile, Picton is a charming town at the beginning of Queen Charlotte's Bay with a picturesque harbor and plain white yachts. It is surrounded by mountains, and there are stunning panoramas and a charming promenade. Tourists will find many cafes, restaurants, and shops. And also — an aquarium with various types of local fish. Nearby is the famous wine region, so you should definitely try the taste of the creations of New Zealand winemakers. In the dry dock is the ship Edwin Fox, which transported convicts to Australia. From here begins the famous track along the Queen Charlotte Bay.
