Things to do in Hawke’s Bay
Sitting under a wide sky with the Pacific Ocean lapping at its feet, the Hawke’s Bay region deserves more than a flying visit. There’s a lot to do and see here. There’s also a lot to taste and sip. And if you like history and natural science, there’s much to learn.
With more than 200km of flat, off-road limestone trails, Hawke's Bay is a biking nirvana.
This region is also much-loved for its Art Deco, Spanish Mission and Stripped Classical architecture. Following a massive earthquake, the city of Napier was entirely rebuilt in the late 1930s – hence the multitude of modernistic buildings. Another reason to love the Hawke’s Bay is wildlife, specifically gannets. A tractor tour along the edge of the sea to the gannet colonies at Cape Kidnappers will create memories like you’ve never had before.
