You are now approaching Havelock, the gateway to the Pelorus and Kenepuru Sounds. Life in Havelock centres around its busy fishing port and here you will see fishing boats, mussel barges and other vessels carrying NZ King Salmon and logs unloading.

Workers wind long ropes – dropper lines from the mussel farms – into hessian sacks and large algae-covered buoys are hauled ashore. Havelock’s main street, lined with cafés and galleries, lies adjacent to the port.

Peruse local art at Creartive Flair, and if you enjoy seafood visit Mussel Boys, where these delectable morsels are served fresh from the Sounds. Cruise boats touring the inner Pelorus and the tranquil Kenepuru Sounds depart regularly, and tours of mussel farms are also on offer.

To visit Havelock, you can Hire Campervans In Nelson (a short drive away) or Rent a Campervan in Christchurch (several hours drive away) or Hire a Motorhome in Picton (a short drive away). You'll find a limited number of options in Picton and Nelson - as most large campervan rental companies are based in Christchurch.
