What you will visit:

Picton Walking Tour
Trek around a sheltered harbor on a two-mile walking tour of Picton that reveals the town's seafaring heritage and lively seaport charms. Picton was once called Waitohi, and, in the early European settlement years, whaling and fishing were its main industries. Stroll along the waterfront and shoreline and learn about the city's history and the biodiversity of the area. At the marina, see the fishing vessels, pleasure craft and water taxis, then pass over Picton's Coat-hanger Bridge, a pedestrian bridge and shortcut from the shopping area to the marina and Shelly Beach. You'll end up at a lookout point (about a 10-minute steady incline) for captivating views over the harbor.

What you will see along the way:
As you stroll, take in the city's architectural highlights and the waterfront district, which reveal Picton's ties to the sea. From the lookout point, gaze upon breathtaking views of the city all the way out to Queen Charlotte Sound.

Refreshments:
At the conclusion of your invigorating walk, indulge in a hokey pokey ice cream, a scoop of vanilla studded with honeycomb toffee, and a cup of coffee or tea at a waterfront venue.

Special Notes:

Minimum age is 10 years. A donation to 'A World without Whales' is included in the tour price.
