Portage is located some 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Wellington, the country's capital.
Staying in this popular region can be not only relaxing, but an adventure too; so be sure to take to the road and check out a couple of the other fabulous villages, towns and cities around Portage. Two places within a relatively short distance of Portage are Blenheim, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north, and Renwick, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast.
Approximately 7 miles (11 kilometers) to the south of Portage is Picton, a regional center where you can explore Picton War Memorial, Motuara Island and Edwin Fox. Picton Harbour and Mabel Island are some more attractions here that should be on every traveler's itinerary.
This region is known for its fine old towns; these are wonderful windows into the region's rich past. If you are after things to do inside, head to South Island's art museums, craft workshops and history museums. These are ideal places to learn a little about the local culture and perhaps pick up a souvenir.
No getaway is really complete without some rest and recuperation. Sunbathing is one of the activities they do to relax in this region and camping is another. Plan a trip during winter and take advantage of winter pastimes including snowboarding and skiing. These are on offer in the South Island.
When it is time to depart Portage, chances are you'll find yourself making plans to return to this beautiful vacation spot.
