Located on the east coast of New Zealands North Island, Hawkes Bay Wine Country is New Zealands leading food and wine region. With over 2200 hours of sunshine, Hawkes Bay is a year-round holiday destination with an eclectic mix of visual and sensory experiences.
Napier, the Art Deco City, is world-famous for its Jazz Age Architecture which rose from the rubble and ashes of a disastrous earthquake and subsequent fires which devastated the city in 1931.
Hawke's Bay Tourism says visitors from around the world delight in Napiers decorative and colourful buildings which speak of the optimism and confidence of the early 20th century and of the imagination and determination of a small kiwi town as it tackled the task of recreating itself during the Great Depression.
