Since 1998, the Marlborough Web Directory web site has been one of the principal entry points for people using the Internet to search for activities, accommodation, business services and investment opportunities in the Marlborough region. The site has provided businesses and organisations in the Marlborough region with a vehicle to effectively promote their products and services to the wider Internet community.

After an extensive period of development, the web site has undergone its third complete revamp, with a whole range of new features added or redefined. We have retained the categories that are of inertest to visitors to the area: accommodation, activities, wineries, business, etc., and we've introduced a number of new sections, including a 'fact file' section that outlines Marlborough's population, history and our community.

Why did we do it? We believe that effective and cooperative promotion of the Marlborough region on the Web will create a 'flow-on' effect for all businesses in Marlborough. We have endeavoured to create a web site that can establish 'linkages' from Marlborough to the world. We will continue to offer free listings, although we do ask for reciprocal links.

We hope you will enjoy using our new site and we look forward to hearing any feedback you might have. If you'd like to contact us, please send an email to editor@discovermarlborough.co.nz
Fit for a Queen
For a taste of real adventure, a walk or cycle along Marlborough's Queen Charlotte Track offers you the experience of a lifetime. Whether you join a tour or go it alone, this is an experience you'll never forget.
Stroll On
A stroll alongside the Taylor River near Blenheim's town centre is easily accessible and is ideal for a gentle and undemanding walk. Take your camera and some bread to feed the ducks.
Kaikoura Magic
With stunning views to snow-capped mountains, the Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway is one of the most popular half-day tracks in New Zealand, passing near a New Zealand fur seal breeding colony.
It's a Fact...
BEAVERTOWN
Because of its frequent floods and nearby swamps, Blenheim was once known as Beavertown. In February 1868, three days of heavy rain at Blenheim and in the surrounding hills caused major flooding. The rainfall for the three days at Blenheim was 104.5mm, causing the Wairau, Taylor and the Omaka rivers to become swollen. A Presbyterian church still being built floated downstream to lodge against the Omaka bridge.
