Tours & Activities

There are a great range of "Top of the South" activities that add a new dimension to the experiences our guests can enjoy in this part of New Zealand.

Combine the boutique style accommodation of St Leonards with any of the following activities:

  • 'Top of the South' scenic tours through the historic Molesworth cattle station - the largest of New Zealand's high country stations.
  • Molesworth 4 x 4 Tours
  • Wine Tours -  let others do the driving while you concentrate on our wonderful wines, along with great scenery. There are many tour types on offer. Contact us for our latest recommendations.

Bookings can be made with tour operators directly, or we will do it for you. Just contact us to help you with your planning.

Take the opportunity to visit both St Leonards in the wine country and Arapawa Island in the Marlborough Sounds.

You can combine a visit to both the Wine Country and the Marlborough Sounds by staying at St Leonards before then moving on to Arapawa Homestead. The Homestead is located on 900 acres of Arapawa Island in the outer Queen Charlotte Sound, on the site of the historic Perano Shore based Whaling Station. Arapawa Homestead offers accommodation, great fishing, bush walks, wild pig hunting and much more.

Boating in the Marlborough Sounds

Both motor boat and yacht charter are available through our local Marlborough Sounds charter company, Compass Charters. Alternatively, you can relax and let others do the navigation with one of the many boat trips that can be enjoyed from either Havalock or Picton. Particularly recommended is the combination of water taxi and tramping that can be organised to suit individual requirements.
