Queen Charlotte Track Tribute. Important steps have been taken to protect the future of the Queen Charlotte Track to ensure it will always be a place of rare nature beauty and freedom. The track only exists as a valuable resource to enjoy and a vital part of the Marlborough economy thanks to the goodwill of the many landowners who allow walkers and bikers and (hopefully the occasional bunch of runners) to cross their property. Please respect that gesture.
