Celebrate Queen Charlotte with a three day birthday bash at The Portage Resort, on Queen’s Birthday weekend (31st May – 2 June).

Stay at the Portage just 10 minutes from Picton by water taxi in the magical Marlborough Sounds. Walk a section of the coastal Queen Charlotte Track named after this spirited lady. Queen Charlotte, born May 1744, was a patron of the arts and wildlife supporter.

Make it a threesome: three days, maybe share with three couples and choose three activities. Start the weekend with cocktails in the retro lounge, birthday bash celebratory dinner on Saturday and waterside BBQ on Sunday.

Background:
Queens Birthday Weekend, 31st May, 1st and 2nd June, 2008, Queen Charlotte Track Month culminates in Queen Charlotte’s Birthday Bash on Queen’s Birthday Weekend.

The original Queen Charlotte was born on May 19, 1744 and was married to mad King George III. She had 15 children, was keen patron of the arts and loved botany. The famous Royal Botanical Gardens at Key flourished under her personal support. Her letters show her to be an intelligent, compassionate, thoughtful woman and a true and loyal friend, a splendid example of a lady of character.

What better reason to celebrate Queen Charlotte, both the lady, New Zealand’s wonderful walking track and the stretch of spectacular water in Queen Charlotte Sound.
