Hawke's Bay is famous for world class wineries, Art Deco architecture, and delicious fresh produce. There are few better places to enjoy Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah wines, and the temperate climate creates the perfect environment for cultivation of strawberries, apples, pears, olives and other orchard delights.

The Hawke’s Bay’s largest cities are Napier and Hastings, with a combined population of approximately 125,000 people. Both cities are easily accessed from Hawke’s Bay Airport, which is serviced by flights from most major New Zealand cities.

The port city of Napier is New Zealand’s Art Deco capital and many of the city’s venues are built in this fascinating architectural style. Hastings is located just 20km away and offers grand venues of its own, including the impressive Hawke’s Bay Opera House.
