Come to see Marlborough's attractions

Some visitors come to taste our internationally renowned Marlborough wines while others stop for a while to work and save a few dollars to extend their stay in New Zealand. Some who come to taste wine stay anyway!

    • Guided Wine Tours
      • Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre
        • Walking Wither Hills

Cycling? Make The Grapevine your Base.

Cycling to the many wineries close to Blenheim and tasting Marlborough wines is a popular activity. This journey has no hills and can now include the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre which displays aircraft and memorabilia in visually stunning theatrical scenes. A number of the vintage planes are owned by Peter Jackson.

We can help with bicycle hire options or one of many guided tours that are available.

Work in the vineyards

Marlborough is also a region where visitors can work in the vineyards. So if you feel like a new experience and need to boost your funds contact us. We can give you updates on what jobs are available. Our hostel has some rooms at a cheaper weekly rate. Inquire here.
