Hawkes Bay

The Pacific Ocean provides a stunning backdrop to the Hawke’s Bay, framed to the south by the dramatic Cape Kidnappers and the Tukituki hills and to the north Wairoa and the Mahia Peninsula (this is where Rocket Labs main launch pad is for their satellites launches). From natural disaster was born a celebration of early twentieth century architecture – Art Deco, Spanish Mission and Stripped Classical buildings pepper Napier, Hastings and the region’s small towns.

Explore celebrated vineyards, the supreme Cape Kidnappers golf course, architecture, birdlife and Maori culture. Hawkes Bay Wine Country is renowned for luxurious B and B’s and small hotels.
