The article presents an overview of the Marlborough region in New Zealand. The Alpine fault divides the area into two, breaking through from the West Coast at Lake Rotoiti and heads down the Wairau valley to Cook Strait. It also serves as the border line between two climatic zones. Characterized by a strong rainfall gradient, climate in the area may vary from wet to dry, depending on the location. Rainfall near the Man Divide could reach up to 2,000 millimeters a year while at its driest point, Lake Grassmere, it averages 400 millimeters.
