We welcome you to Picton, the gateway to the Marlborough Sounds.
Tombstone Backpackers is located only 3 minutes walk from the Bluebridge ferry terminal and just across the road from the vehicle exit of both the InterIslander and Bluebridge ferries.
We are the closest accommodation provider to vehicle users of both ferries.
This is the major link between both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. From Picton, transport can be arranged with the Coastal Pacific train or buses for your onward journey about our beautiful South Island.
