Purchase a Piece of the Kenepuru Sounds
The Marlborough Sounds are an extensive network of sea-fringed bays, hidden golden beaches and native bush ranges at the northern end of the South Island of New Zealand. According to Māori mythology the Sounds are the prows of the sunken wakas of Aoraki.
The Kenepuru Sounds is an arm of Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere and it runs for 25 kilometres from the northeast to southwest, joining Pelorus Sound a quarter of the way down the latter’s path to the Cook Strait.

Kenepuru Sound lies to the northwest and parallel to Queen Charlotte Sound with some of the bays of the two sounds only hundreds of metres apart. Torea Bay and Portage Bay are separated only by a small hill range so not surprisingly, the original settlement called Portage was named for the simplest method of passing between the two sounds. Queen Charlotte Walking Track runs along the ridge of hills dividing the Kenepuru Sound and Queen Charlotte Sound.
