  • Picton still does very well with domestic travellers and it is a transient town that booms with the international travellers
  • A number of the Ferrylink’s client base stay the night before catching the ferry to Wellington or stay the night after arriving in Picton from Wellington, as well as other regulars staying multiple nights and even weeks.
  • Picton is to undergo a massive port expansion to cater for a larger fleet of ferries, that will fill up motels in the next few years.

It’s a very rare opportunity that won’t last long.
