Hawke's Bay - East Cape

Hawke’s Bay offers a unique combination of picturesque scenery and stylish culture in a delightful sunny climate. Located on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, Hawke’s Bay Wine Country is New Zealand’s leading food and wine region. With over 2200 hours of sunshine, Hawke’s Bay is a year-round holiday destination with an exceptional mix of visual and sensory experiences.

The main centre of the region is Napier, a charming town nestled in the bay and offering many stunning examples of Art Deco and Spanish Mission-style architecture. Art Deco-themed events feature highly on the social calendar and a lively arts scene is another important aspect of the local culture.

Along Napier’s magnificent coastline explore golden sandy beaches, cafes and the National Aquarium of New Zealand. Further south, visit the world’s largest mainland colony of Gannets, a handsome seabird. Sampling the local produce will be high on the to-do list of any traveler.

Don’t miss:


Wine tasting


Hawke’s Bay’s fertile plains, combined with a warm and sunny climate, have given the area a reputation as the fruit bowl of New Zealand.

It is wine, however, that has really put this region on the map. Hawke’s Bay is the country’s second largest winemaking region and it holds the distinction of being New Zealand’s leading producer of award-winning red wines.


Cape Kidnappers – Seabird Safari


Cape Kidnappers nature reserve is home to the largest and most accessible mainland gannet colony in the world and presents a special, up close opportunity to observe the seabirds in its natural environment.

Alternative to walking the Cape is a guided Gannet Safari or paddling a sit-on kayak on a guided or independent eco-tour.


Marineland – Family Attraction


Napier’s Marineland is New Zealand’s only marine zoo and wildlife centre.

It features several species of native marine wildlife, including the New Zealand fur seal, the Leopard seal, Little Blue penguin, gannets and cormorants.

Check them out from the underwater viewing gallery or watch them from above.
