Welcome back to the Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand… it’s about time we took a hike to burn off some of the calories we’ve been eating and drinking! We’re tackling a portion of the Queen Charlotte Track, a really popular New Zealand hike trail, as we make our way between Furneaux Lodge and Punga Cove.
The Queen Charlotte Track is about 72km of coastal trail deep in the Marlborough Sounds, winding around various different sounds, bays and inlets. There’s plenty of tales about Captain Cook in this part of NZ after his various trips to the area, a few of the bays with names reflecting those voyages.
As for the hike, it’s a beautiful coastal track with plenty of great stops along the way with views as well. Not too steep, not too flat, not too maintained and not too raw — it’s a nice blend of adventure, scenery and nature.

We’re Dane & Stacey — a couple of nomadic travellers from little New Zealand, doing big things. In early 2017 we booked a one-way ticket to Thailand and traveled for 3 years non-stop… but travel has changed for everyone since late 2019 obviously.
Now we spend most of our time in New Zealand, experiencing our own country through the eyes of a tourist and sharing that all here, with you.
And for what it’s worth, it’s pronounced Dane-Ger, aka Danger… not Dan-E-Ger 😱
