Havelock is Green lip Mussel ‘capitol of New Zealand. Havelock is a progressive and proud community and is a place where it is a delight to lose a few hours.

The state highway, driven by tourism and the green lip mussel business are Havelock key economic drivers, but the town has all of the essential services and can service adequately the surrounding rural community.

Havelock is a coastal village in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. It sits at the head of Pylorus Sound, one of the many Marlborough Sounds.

Havelock was named after Sir Henry Havelock, known from the Siege of Lucknow during the Indian Rebellion of 1857. The main street is Lucknow Street.

William Pickering, space scientist and former director of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Havelock has a Catholic and Anglican representation.

Two Museums are offering a great insight to the region.

The hotels are vintage maritime offerings and the War Memorial is located in the centre of the township.

The green lip mussel restaurant is enough of a temptation to linger in this great town.
