Picton to Nelson, Mapua, Kaiteriteri

Nelson is about 1hr 45min, Mapua a further 30mins, and Kaiteriteri 30mins beyond that.

You can either travel via Queen Charlotte Drive, or head in towards Blenheim as shown on the map, the distance is a little more but the travel time is about the same.

The journey takes you through Havelock and Pelorus Bridge see separate post.

There is plenty to see but for a day trip I mention two of my favourite places, Mapua Wharf and Kaiteriteri.
