Marlborough Sounds Festival Starts Soon

Five weekends to remind you why we have weekends – the inaugural Marlborough Sounds Festival begins on the weekend of 26 September.  This five weekend festival has been created by Portage Resort Hotel.  The festival has five themed weekends, beginning with the Sounds Water and Wilderness Weekend.  Stay at the hotel and enjoy activities, delicious food and wine.  The 2nd weekend is our Sounds Adventure Challenge – a day of sea kayaking, mountain biking and running, achievable for all from the nervous novice to the experienced multi-sporter out for a training run.  The third weekend features the Sounds Seafood School – al fresco dining and workshops.  Get creative on the fourth weekend with painting and writing workshops and the final weekend ends with Spring in the Sounds – a weekend combining all the highlights that the sounds have to offer.  There are options for everyone, from groups of friends wanting to get away for the weekend together, to family groups looking for a bit of adventure, to just couples needing that short break away.  Check out all the details on the website www.marlboroughsoundsfestival.co.nz
