Marlborough 5 days itinerary

We plan a trip to Marlborough for 5 days from 26 to 31 December. I have never been there before and have several questions. This is our approximate itinerary.

We’ll be in Picton for two days and we’d like to do part of Queen Charlotte Track. I read that majority takes water taxis but I am concerned that they are too expensive over $100 per person.

1. My question is can we drive on Kenerupu road and then do small tracks to several sounds.

We then travel towards Abel Tasman Park.

I think to stay in Nelson for 2 nights and do Abel Tasman Park and Golden Bay from there.

2. We are not interested in wine tours. Is there anything interesting to see in Nelson. I am asking because I also considering staying closer to Abel Tasman Park. Probably in Motueka or in Puramahoi.

3. What are the prettiest Bays to see in Abel Tasman Park? I am interested in white beaches where we can swim. Is it possible to drive closer to them?

4. I am also thinking about going to Kaikora for one day. Apart from the whale watching and seals what else is to do/see in there.

I would appreciate your comments.
