For those who live here and those who visit, Marlborough's beauty is obvious and immediately enveloping.
From the sprawling plains of vineyards - glossy green in spring and summer, and burnt orange in autumn - fringed by rolling hills and snowy peaks in the distance, to the lush coves and tranquil green waters of the Marlborough Sounds it's amazingly diverse but consistantly gorgeous. It's a keep-your-camera-ready sort of place where you'll happily fill your memory card in no time.
Sunrises and sunsets light up the skies with astounding colour, and during the day - being the sunniest region in New Zealand, it's usually sunny - the brilliant blue skies cast an ever-changing light over this stunning region.
