Furneaux Lodge & Punga Cove

What better way to experience Marlborough than staying in Endeavour Inlet. The lucky winner of this competition will get to choose between staying at the beautiful Furneaux Lodge or gorgeous Punga Cove. 

Furneaux Lodge is the first stop on the renowned Queen Charlotte Track. It is set on 3 acres of the most picturesque scenery in the Marlborough Sounds, unchanged since Captain Cook's first visit to the inlet in 1769.

The equally gorgeous Punga Cove is nestled on a hillside amongst stunning scenery in the magnificent waterways of New Zealand's Marlborough Sounds and is the perfect retreat for people wanting to relax in style.
