The Queen Charlotte Track has rapidly gained a reputation as New Zealand’s gourmet walking trail.
This is due in no small part to the amazing array of accommodation and associated restaurants dotted along the length of the Marlborough Sounds.
Accommodation along the Queen Charlotte Track is diverse enough to suit any taste or budget – from luxury boutique lodges, resorts and hotels, to budget backpacker hostels, track cabins, camping sites and huts.
Where else can you walk through terrain as diverse as virgin native forest or skyline ridges by day and by night, dine on a three course restaurant or home cooked meal matched with a glass of fine Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It always tastes that much better because you don’t have to prepare it or carry it!
No matter what your budget, however, the Queen Charlotte Track has an accommodation option for you. From Department of Conservation campsites at $6 per person per night to the very best luxury suites at hotels and resorts along the way, there is something to suit all tastes and finances.
The track has four Department of Conservation campsites located along its length at Camp Bay, Bay of Many Coves Shelter, Black Rock Shelter and Davies (Umangata) Bay as well as Cowshed Bay, near Portage. In addition, there are private campsites located in Endeavour Inlet and Mistletoe Bay.
