Welcome to Lochmara Lodge Marlborough Sounds Wildlife Recovery and Arts Centre. We are set on the tranquil shore of the Queen Charlotte Sound in the Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand.
We offer exceptional day tours, cruises and accommodation for visitors looking for unique and memorable kiwi experiences.
We provide a destination where national and international visitors can come learn about, interact with and appreciate New Zealand’s native flora, fauna and art while enjoying a magical Marlborough Sounds escape.
Lochmara Lodge is a unique and vibrant centre for the arts in the stunning Marlborough Sounds. The Arts Centre supports and celebrates New Zealand artists and provides a unique venue for visitors and art lovers to access and interact with art and the artists themselves.
The Arts Centre is not a physical space, but a hub of artistic endeavour throughout the Lodge. It includes an outdoor sculpture trail, two indoor gallery spaces, an annual artist retreat, artists in residence studio, regular music and live art events, lectures, creative networking events, and a Spring and Autumn workshop series for artists, art-enthusiasts, and novices looking for a new experience.
