With an attractive blend of wonderful weather, excellent food and wine and stunning natural scenery, Hawke’s Bay has long been high on the bucket list of many visitors.
But there’s much more. Napier was devastated by an earthquake in 1931 and is today the Art Deco capital of the world with many 1930s architectural gems. In fact the town has the highest concentration of Art Deco buildings in the world and celebrates with an Art Deco Weekend in February.
The Hawke’s Bay region is synonymous with the best of New World wines. Over 30 wineries open their doors for wine tasting and alfresco dining among the vines. A visit to Te Mata peak is truly spectacular with magnificent sweeping views – it’s a twisting road but well worth it.
