In the historic town of Havelock you can enjoy green-lipped mussels, browse art galleries and organise a boat trip for fishing or sightseeing.

Located at the meeting point of the Pelorus and Kaiuma Rivers on the coast northwest of Blenheim, Havelock calls itself the "green-lipped mussel capital of the world". Once a gold mining settlement, the town has many quaint colonial buildings which today house boutique galleries and eating places (be sure to order the mussels). The Havelock Museum has interesting displays that explain the town's past.

At Havelock's marina there are water taxis and charter boats ready to take you fishing or show you around Pelorus and Kenepuru Sounds. Sea kayaks can also be hired here for guided or independent paddling tours.

Local accommodation includes private holiday homes, a camping ground, lodges, B&B's, homestays and motels.

Functional facts: Approx. population 490, good range of shops and services.
