Welcome to New Zealand at its Best

“Congratulations on publishing the 2015-16 edition of Organic Explorer. 

The book is a terrific collection of New Zealand eco travel experiences ranging from well-known major operators to hidden gems throughout the country.

It’ll be a great travel companion for anyone exploring New Zealand and wanting to hunt out the best eco experiences on offer. 

I wish you every success with your book”.

Lochmara Lodge Wildlife Recovery and Arts Centre is an eco- and art- retreat set on the tranquil shores of the Marlborough Sounds. Built by locals Shayne Olsen and Louise Bright, the Lodge has been operating since 1997. One aspect that has remained constant over that time is our continued dedication towards conservation, art, and education. We aim to provide a destination where day visitors and overnight guests can come learn, interact and appreciate New Zealand’s flora, fauna and art, while still offering a superb accommodation and dining experience. The Lodge offers chalet and unit accommodation, a fully licensed cafe/restaurant, and day tours, just a 15 minute water taxi ride from Picton. Free WiFi in all rooms of the lodge.
For the more adventurous souls there are cruise, walk, and bike options via the Queen Charlotte Track. Once here you'll discover bush walks on our character filled 11-acre predator-free property, breeding programmes with endangered species, native birds, glow-worms, a self-guided eco tour, safe swimming beach, kayaks, and a sculpture trail and art galleries. Treat yourself to a spa, massage and the best of Marlborough's local food and wine at our licensed restaurant. "Once discovered... never forgotten..."
