Hawke’s Bay is synonymous with wine country and is the leading producer of red wines and is renowned for its gourmet food.

The central city of Napier is famous for its Art Deco architecture. Spectacular beaches stretch all along this coastline. Visit Hawkes Bay in spring, when the orchards are covered in blossom and further on at Cape Kidnappers, watch the gannets returning to hatch their chicks. The whole Hawke’s Bay region is full of Maori history, from Te Urewera National Park to Te Mata Peak, learn about their customs, beliefs, traditions, and the Maori people’s dance, including a visit to a local Marae.
