A top attraction in Blenheim is the Omaka Aviation Heritage Museum where the Knights of the Sky exhibit occupies 3,000m2 and is one of the world’s largest collections of WWI aircraft and rare memorabilia including a mix of dramatically staged static displays along with flyable aeroplanes. This innovative and visually stunning exhibition depicts aircraft in context, some recreating actual incidents. The centre is in the process of opening up a World War II section and recently took delivery of a rare Spifire Griffin Mark14. You don’t have to be an aviation enthusiast to enjoy this exhibit!
Whilst Marlborough is renowned for its excellent wine production, the region offers more than its world famous wines as it also encompasses the stunning waters of the Marlborough Sounds.
Picton at the head of picturesque Queen Charlotte Sound is the terminal for the Interislander ferry between the North and South Island. It is a picturesque township overlooking the Sound and also the gateway to the waters of the Marlborough Sounds.  
The Marlborough Sounds are best explored on water, with a range of cruises and activities from a self-guided kayak excursion to sailing on a luxury yacht. Perhaps get active by swimming with dolphins, diving or fishing in the Sounds. Sample two of Marlborough’s premier products – Sauvignon Blanc and Green Shell Mussels on the Green Shell Mussel Cruise which departs from Havelock – accessible via the scenic Queen Charlotte Drive. For something more active hike either the length – or a portion - of the Queen Charlotte Track as it winds its way through native forest, along view filled ridges and beside idyllic coves
