Your central location

in Marlborough Sounds

The Portage Bay is situated towards the head of the Kenepuru Sounds, bordered by the renowned Queen Charlotte Walkway.

The Rewa Rewa Property development is the dominant land area in the Portage Bay.

This sought-after central location in the Marlborough Sounds makes it easy to access by air, boat or road. There are direct flights daily from every major NZ city centre – Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. When travelling by road from Blenheim, it is a very scenic 1.5 hour drive on sealed road. Alternatively you can make a 25 minute drive to Picton, (the South Island’s port for the Interislander ferry connection) and then take a 10 minute water taxi to the Portage Bay.

The Rewa Rewa Lots Plan

The Portage Bay is extremely popular with New Zealand families as a top boating and summer holiday destination.

The Portage Bay area is a multi-sensory experience of the best that Marlborough has to offer.

Residents and visitors can enjoy sea kayaking, fishing, walking national parks, touring Marlborough wineries, or just relaxing with a book on the deck surrounded by native birdsong tranquility.

The Portage Bay is highly prized by New Zealand families as a treasured summer holiday destination for relaxation, boating and more. At this stage, the potential of the Rewa Rewa Property development has only begun. The sought-after Rewa Rewa land offers an excellent investment opportunity for property owners to benefit from this growing resident and tourist market. This rare 12 building site land area will only be available for a limited time.

Local bays and waterways are an intriguing jade and turquoise colour, with ‘fingers’ of bays that weave amongst golden sandy beaches. Untouched native bush thrives in this temperate climate, with vast stands of giant Rimu, Beech, Puketea and Totara trees, alongside Nikau palms and giant Tree-fern groves filling the valleys.

The full list of native NZ bird life species can be enjoyed in the Portage area. Stand on the deck or just open the windows and soak up the dawn harmony of Tui and Bell Bird song that is truly a melodious natural wonder.

A unique setting of world-class natural beauty.

A public boat launching ramp is directly across the road within 2 minutes walk from the Rewa Rewa Property, in front of the Portage Bay Store and adjacent to the marina and car park.

As this is one of the very few public boat launching ramps in the Kenepuru Sounds, this is also another draw-card to residential growth and visitors. Local shop, chartered fishing, yacht hire, mountain bike hire, and kayak hire are available as part of the Portage Resort’s range of eco-tourism facilities. For all its natural tranquility, there is a definite dynamic feeling when in the Portage that there is always lots to do, on land and water.

The peaceful and uncomplicated setting of the Portage Bay native bush amphitheatre is a unique setting that draws those who experience it to return, time and time again. The Rewa Rewa Property title envelops virtually the entire amphitheatre of native bush backdrop of the Portage Bay that you can see in the photos.

The property dominates this beautiful Bay in terms of land area and position, providing an unrivalled development opportunity to build further on this well-recognised holiday destination in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds.
