Nestled deep in Queen Charlotte Sound, Picton is reminiscent of small town
New Zealand, unhurried and free of crowds. While having modern amenities and
facilities, Picton has retained the charm of a fishing port. The waterfront
is a perfect place to wander and relax.
Picton has a good range of cafes, restaurants and bars - something for all
tastes. For those wanting to make an early start to the track breakfasts are
available from as early as 7.00am. Car storage is readily available, as are
shuttles to and from the airport.
While having numerous hotels and motels, Picton also has particularly good
backpacker lodges and homestays. Although accommodation is plentiful, booking
is essential especially in the peak seasons.
