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

It's a Fact...
RESOLUTION & ADVENTURE
Captain James Cook visited the Marlborough Sounds for the second time in 1773 aboard the Resolution. He had left England with Capt. Tobias Ferneaux, who commanded the Adventure, but the ships became separated in a storm. Ferneaux arrived in the Sounds 10 days before Cook, but departed before Cook's arrival. During Ferneaux's visit to the Sounds, several of his crew were killed and eaten by local Maori.
