Hawkes Bay

Everything Under the Sun

Northland

Hawke’s Bay is loved for its sunny climate, fabulous beaches, sheltered coastal plains and long-established vineyards. It is one of New Zealand’s warmest, driest regions and this has made it one of the country’s leading producers of wine; notably red wines – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah – but also with some quite stunning whites.

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 join the lunchers at Napier’s Great Long Lunch. And it’s a place where you can walk the forest trails of the Ruahine and Kaweka Forest Parks, visit the Cape Kidnappers gannet colony or relax on the glorious beaches that stretch along the coast.
