Havelock is a historical village founded on the gold rush & wood trade of the 1860s. Havelock thrived, catering for the miners from the near-by Canvastown, with 23 hotels & the saw mill located here - Havelock was a bustling township.
Many of the original township buildings & homesteads still stand today, including us. Bluemoon lodge is based in a 2 storey, 130 year old home, which was used as the town doctors surgery. Located centrally, we're an easy walking distance to all the cafes, museums & craft stores.
Known as the gateway to the sounds, Havelock is a fantastic base for your Marlborough experience. Whether you walk, cycle, drive or take to the water - don't miss Marlborough's stunning views.
