This holiday season get yourself acquainted with some of the region's amazing natural areas.
The Department of Conservation Marlborough summer explorer programme has a range of activities suitable for the whole family, many free of charge, which will help you discover some of Marlborough's hidden secrets.
The programme kicks off tomorrow with a focus on Whites Bay.
Go and explore the bush along Black Jack Track in a guided walk and scavenger hunt, or on Saturday you can search for glow worms and learn about the bush night creatures, or perhaps Tuesday's guided beach walk where you can learn about the marine environment is more to your taste.
