Marlborough is home to braided rivers, high country farms, thriving international industries and an astonishing environment, including the unique Marlborough Sounds. With 1,800 kilometres of coastline, the region leads in aquaculture and seafood processing with innovative secondary markets emerging from extracting nutraceuticals to turning waste into value streams. Home to 70% of Aotearoa’s vineyard area and 85% of wine exports, the region is poised to become Australasia’s leading agritech region. This diverse and picturesque landscape is also home to an emerging screen sector backed up by the iconic Sawmill Studios HQ.
