Hawkes Bay

Hawkes Bay

Hawke’s Bay is a large area surrounding a bay around 100 km (60 miles) long on the south-eastern side of the North Island. Napier, built in a distinctive art deco style, adjoins Hastings, the region’s agricultural service hub. With a mix of outstanding coastline and large tracts of wild native rainforest, Hawke’s Bay provides an awesome wilderness experience. The North Island region is famous for its beaches separated by rugged coastal cliffs, as well as the largest tract of native rainforest in New Zealand, Te Urewera. Lakes, waterfalls, coastal scenery, wildlife: they all make up the natural attractions in Hawke’s Bay. Inland, you have the iconic Lake Waikaremoana, home to one of New Zealand’s Great Walks in the Te Urewera Rainforest. The Mohaka River is not only a breathtaking river gorge full of fossils, it makes an exciting whitewater rafting location. On the coast, don’t miss the world’s largest gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers or the beautiful beaches of the Mahia Peninsula!

Built around the region’s climate, iconic buildings, and wineries, Hawke's Bay hosts many concerts, conferences, sporting events and farmers' markets. For years, Hawke’s Bay (particularly the Hastings District) was known as ‘New Zealand’s fruit bowl’ for its stone and pip fruit production. More recently, land use has diversified, especially in viticulture. With extensive vineyards thanks to consistently hot and dry summers and autumns. It’s hard to beat Hawkes Bay when it comes to weather, with an average of 2258 sunshine hours every year.
