Hawke’s Bay is a region of New Zealand located in the east of the North Island on the Pacific Ocean coast. With a mild Mediterranean climate, summer is quite often sunnier and hotter than the average for the rest of New Zealand.
If there were two words that summed up Hawke's Bay it would be 'Wine Country'. Hawke’s Bay is one of New Zealand’s warmest, driest regions and this has made it one of the country’s leading producers of wine and apples. As well as being a popular stop on numerous NZ wine tours, Hawke's Bay is also known as an art deco city, having been rebuilt after the 1931 earthquake.
There is also an extensive network of high quality off-road recreational walkways and cycleways to suit all fitness levels, boutique artisan food stores, and a variety of museums and galleries.
With glorious beaches and a family-friendly community, the Hawke's Bay region is as welcoming as it is unique, with universal appeal for people from all walks and stages of life.
