Marlborough Region

Although Marlborough is the closest part of the South Island to the North, culturally it manages to feel like it’s a long way away – it’s a place of low population, low development, a largely agricultural and wine-based economy. Because of this, the mild climate and the wonderful scenery, it’s a favourite place to retire – in fact the average age is 7 years higher than the overall NZ average.

I have only 3 reports on Marlborough and they don’t say a great deal.

Here’s a link to the Wikipedia article on Marlborough Region.
