Ship Cove (Captain Cook's Monument)

Queen Charlotte Sound
Kenepuru Sound, Nelson/Marlborough
The early European explorer, Captain James Cook, took advantage of the shelter and natural bounty of the locality, making Ship Cove his New Zealand base. He spent more than 100 days here between 1770 and 1777.

Ship Cove can only reached by walking track or by sea.
It is the start or finish of the Queen Charlotte walkway - a 71 kilometre trip which takes 3 to 5 days.

The walkway is also used by mountain-bikers.
