How far is the InterCity bus stop in Picton from the Ferry?

We will arrive in Picton at 12:30 early April, and need to catch the bus to Christchurch at 1:30 pm. Would we have enough time to get on that bus?

You're a bit of a slow walker Brian!!

The bus service is designed to connect with the ferry. You'll have plenty of time for lunch as well if you didn't eat on the ferry. Subway is just a short distance from the ferry.

Google says 4 minutes/ 300 metres. I haven't done it by bus since 2006 when I stayed overnight in Picton anyway. Knew it was just along the road.
