  • QCT Options
  • Exploring the Queen Charlotte Track

  • The Queen Charlotte Track (QCT) is a well-maintained 71 km walking/biking track based in the Marlborough Sounds that stretches from Anakiwa to Meretoto / Ship Cove.

    The QCT was developed back in 1979 by the Department of Conservation assisted by a number of local Marlborough organisations and associations. The track's popularity has grown over the years and it attracts visitors of all ages from all walks of like.

    Whether you wish to explore the entire track or just a section of it, we can assist you with the appropriate bookings for transportation, accommodation and activities. We highly recommend that you plan ahead and pre-book your spots. You can do so via our online booking system at the same time that you are booking your room/s with us here at Piwaka Lodge & Backpackers.
