Havelock is the world's capital of mussel farming in New Zealand . It is located in the northern part of the region Marlborough, on the South Island. Havelock was founded in the 1850s, as a link between the towns of Nelson and Blenheim . At that time, the area was famous for gold mining and timber felling. In contrast, today it is known for mussels farming. The Main Street of Havelock retained its historic atmosphere: there is a stone church, a historic workman-house and an old school that serves as a dormitory now. In the Havelock Museum, you can recall and learn about the history of the city. The biggest attractions of the city are the restaurants offering New Zealand mussels, which made the town famous. Due to the location of Havelock in the area of the Marlborough Sounds , there are several beautiful hiking trails with spectacular views in the surroundings. It is the starting point of the picturesque Queen Charlotte Drive taking you to the town of Picton .
