You have the opportunity to join the world famous Pelorus Mail Run in the Marlborough Sounds. You'll visit isolated homesteads nestled in quiet secluded bays, delivering crucial supplies and mail the same way it has been done for decades.
Set between stunning lush native bush and above a crystal clear river is Pelorus Bridge.
This enchanting scenic reserve is a great starting point for easy walks through the forest to a gorgeous waterfall and rock pool. Surrounded by the sounds of the native birds singing – you are likely to spot Tui, Bellbirds, Wood Pigons and fantails playing in trees.
Swim or kayak in the crystal-clear waters, just as the Dwarves did when they were being filmed for scenes in the ‘The Hobbit’.
A little bit of middle earth magic you don’t want to miss!
