 Blenheim has offered safe harbour to travellers sailing to the spectacular South Island for centuries: first the Maori traders and war parties; then explorers like Captain James Cook and Dumont d?Urville; and now, to visitors seeking a retreat from city pressures, as they discover the unspoilt haven and foodie heaven that is Marlborough today.


Not only that but Blenheim is also popular as a venue for the pickup and drop off of campervan and motorhome hire vehicles. This is handy for Brit travellers who have just hopped off their plane and who want to get on with their travels around New Zealand.


The Marlborough region in which Blenheim is situated has a wide range of leisure activities, from swimming with dolphins in the Marlborough Sounds to watching whales in Kaikoura; from walks through the bush and along the rugged coastline, as well as scenic boat cruising, fishing, water-skiing and kayaking. The relaxed lifestyle and the flourishing wine and gourmet food industry in Marlborough are enjoyed by both locals and visitors alike.
