Add To Plan

Discover both the historic and gourmet heritage of the Marlborough region by touring a fascinating aviation museum, craft beer brewery and handmade chocolate factory.

Traveling from the pier by coach you will first drive to the spectacular Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre in the picturesque Marlborough region. Here, you'll tour one of the world's largest private collections of World War I aircraft, including the only existing Caproni Ca 22 parasol monoplane. You'll also see rare planes such as the bird-like Etrich Taube, Curtis MF Flying Boat, and an agile Fokker made famous by the Red Baron. But planes only touch upon the compelling displays, which include artifacts and personal belongings from many of the pilots. You don't have to be an aviation buff to appreciate this unrivalled, historic collection.

Then, the attention turns to pleasing your palate, first with a tour of nearby Renaissance Brewing. The brewery produces ultra-premium craft beers made with locally grown hops, naturally occurring sugars from malted barley, and pure water from the island's Southern Alps. It's a difference you can easily taste in beers such as the brewery's hearty Scotch Ale, citrus-flavored Blonde Ale and emphatically hoppy India Pale Ale.

And what better conclusion to this excursion than dessert at Makana Confections? One of New Zealand's leading producers of handmade chocolates and other sweet temptations, Makana offers classic truffles, macadamia bark, Marlborough wine gelées and plenty of sugar-free treats. After sampling some of these indulgences, it's time to transfer back to the pier where your tour comes to its conclusion.

The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability.
