We thoroughly recommend the Hawke’s Bay experience to you. Having emigrated from England, we have chosen this wonderful region and made it home.
With over 2,200 hours of sunshine, you will be spoilt for choice for activities and places to fill your time during long, lazy sunny summer days. (The winters are pretty awesome too!)
A few things that Hawke’s Bay is famous for include Art Deco buildings and culture, world-renowned wine and gourmet food, stunning landscape and great beaches.
The twin cities of Napier and Hastings provide ample opportunity to soak up the café culture, internationally renowned Art Deco and Spanish Mission architecture.
Havelock North Village boasts a great boutique shopping experience, Te Mata Peak, wineries and cheese and honey factories.
The Heretaunga Plains are famous for being the fruit bowl of New Zealand – thick with miles of orchards and vineyards set beneath the backdrop of the Ruahine mountains and against the Pacific Ocean.
There’s always heaps to experience in the Bay and a great source of information about what’s on can be found at http://www.hawkesbaynz.com/.
