13 Picton / Marlborough Sounds
Make sure you leave enough time to make plenty of stops along the way, the drive passes through many stunning little bays, and there are plenty of photo opportunities.
You should stop at the lookout near the Havelock end of the road. The view out across the sounds from this spot at Cullens Point is breathtaking. Keep your eyes out for bikes as they also like this route.

06Oct18. Lovely drive, great lookouts. Beautiful scenery. Better for the passengers than driver as the road is very windy. Thank wotsit for power steering and auto box! Just make plenty of stops to enjoy the views.

Great drive with a lot of lookout points of the Marlborough Sounds!
The drive between Picton and Havelock is very scenic and beautiful. It is a bit windy with a big campervan but worth the effort.
Gorgeous time along the coast from Picton. So many stunning views and stop off points. Highly recommended.
A beautiful road. So many great lookouts!!
Fantastic drive and lots of great places to stop that overlook the Sounds.
Beautiful scenery at every time. Bathrooms and camping spots are plentiful. Only downfall would be the winding roads for those who get car sick.
The drive from Picton to Havelock is a 35km ride directly at the coast with stunning views of the Marlborough Sounds.
Off the beaten path so make sure you have at least half a tank of gas and a stomach for gravel roads. EPIC!
Stunning landscape! We had several breaks at the lookout points and enjoyed the beautiful views. But quite a lot of turns/bends and sometimes steep!

Beautiful way to drive.
The scenery was great and there were a lot of lookouts and spots at the beach. Better than the Great Ocean Road!
Very curvy drive along the fjords with very nice lookout points.
