Welcome to Picton TOP 10
We would like to advise everyone that following the earthquakes on Sunday 13th November 2016 that Picton Top10 has suffered no damage and is open and fully operational as is the rest of Picton. All tour operaters, restaurants and cafes are open as usual and the Queen Charlotte Track has suffered no damage. Picton to Christchurch is accessible via the Lewis Pass and will take 1-2 hours longer than normal. All other roads from the West Coast and Nelson are as normal. Ferries are sailing on an amended timetable and all flights are as normal. The weather is now beautiful and sunny and we look forward to seeing you all.
Roger and Julie Kett welcome you to Picton TOP 10 Holiday Park.
Marlborough’s second-largest town with a population of approximately 4500 people, Picton is located in an impressive setting in upper Queen Charlotte Sound, in the inlet known as Picton Harbour.
Picton is steeped in history, starting with early Maori and followed by Captain Cook who visited Queen Charlotte Sound on his great explorations. The early whaling days, gold mining, fishing, port and tourism industries have all enriched the town with fascinating stories and historic sites.
Picton has grown into a beautiful waterside holiday town with some of New Zealand’s best marina facilities, along with great shopping, dining and services. Picton is also the Interisland ferry terminal for travel across Cook Strait to Wellington.
Visitors will find it a fantastic base for exploring the Marlborough Sounds that make up one-fifth of New Zealand’s entire coastline. The country's most popular waterways for boating and kayaking, the Sounds are most famous for the Queen Charlotte Track that runs almost the entire length of New Zealand’s Queen Charlotte Sound. The track stretches from Ship Cove to Anakiwa – 70 kilometre (approximately 45 miles) of spectacular walking/biking track passing through historic sites, secluded bays and lush coastal bush.
Picton is also a great base for exploring attractions across the wider region, such as Marlborough's world-class wineries just a twenty-minute drive away. Wine tours run daily from central Picton.
Just one kilomere from the town centre, Picton TOP 10 Holiday Park is ideally situated to take advantage of all the area has to offer, whether you wish to take a cruise, explore the Queen Charlotte Track, or simply stroll around the town, marina and foreshore stopping to enjoy a great coffee, food and wine in one of our many local cafés.
