Get Me to Hawke's Bay...

Encompassing Napier, Hastings and Havelock North, Hawke's Bay is one of New Zealand’s warmest, driest regions.

Hawke's Bay is New Zealand’s Art Deco centre, rebuilt in the 1930’s after a huge earthquake. It’s a place where you can shop at the farmers' market for locally grown delicacies, indulge in artisan gourmet food, and enjoy the incredible scenery at Te Mata Peak. It’s a place where you can indulge in world class cuisine, visit the Cape Kidnappers gannet colony or relax on the glorious beaches that stretch along the coast.

The region boasts numerous quality vineyards, orchards and farms, providing a picturesque backdrop, and making the region well known for its wine and food production. The outstanding weather has made Hawke's Bay one of the country’s leading producers of wine.  The region is the first stop on the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail, and it's a popular place for bicycle wine tours.

Hawke's Bay offers a range of accommodation, from exclusive lodges and self-contained cottages to hotels, motels, camping grounds, bed & breakfasts and home stays. 

We encourage you to make a weekend of it!  And enjoy all that is on offer in beautiful Hawke's Bay.

Havelock North was once awarded New Zealand's Most Beautiful Suburb, so come and enjoy the beauty for yourself.
