Add to Itinerary

Sure you could walk around downtown Napier and grab a postcard to check out the nearby views. You could walk to a local confectionery to buy some chocolates made somewhere in New Zealand. You could head over to the grocery store and buy a carton of strawberries. You could sit down at a bar and order a glass of Hawkes Bay wine. Yes, these are all things you can do, but we contest all of these things would mean much more to you if taken directly to the source. Cut out the middle man and learn a little bit along the way!

Driving along the Marine Parade you will learn about the history of Napier and the 1931 earthquake that devastated and in turn redefined the entire city. A tour around the Art Deco precinct provides a perfect overview on how this rediscovery of identity has proven a timeless point of interest and pride for locals. Within Napier you hear about Art Deco and outside of Napier, in the greater Hawkes Bay region, you can't avoid the world famous wine. Stopping at a local winery for a complimentary tasting will provide delight for your taste buds and great insight into an industry that has helped put the area on the international map.

Up on Te Mata Peak you will soak in some of the best views in all of Hawkes Bay and look down upon the winery you have just visited. 360 degree panoramic views of the Heretaunga Plains and beyond provide the perfect photo opportunity. Heading through New Zealand's richest village, Havelock North, you will arrive in Napier's sister city, Hastings. Petunia Pots and store verandas line the streets as you see just how encompassing the earthquake was through the additional series of Art Deco constructions.

When you have a great horticultural region for wine, odds are produce in general will be irresistible, so we'll reset your standard on strawberries with a visit to a local fruit shop. On top of some mouth watering fresh fruit, you will stop at Silk Oak Chocolate Company which provides top shelf chocolate treats. Some travelers will make this their only stop in Napier to stock up on house made delicacies.
