Activities

Art Deco - Napier was rebuilt in the early 1930’s following a massive earthquake which destroyed most of its commercial heart. Nowhere else can you see such a variety of buildings in the styles of the 1930’s – stripped classical, Spanish mission, and above all Art Deco, the jazz age style – in such a concentrated area.

 

Wineries - Wine has been produced commercially in the Hawkes Bay since 1850 and the vintage produced by the Friars of Mission Estate were soon winning acclaim from Europe. There are 28 wineries in the region now producing wine that win awards all over the world.

 

Trout Fishing - The Hawkes Bay is renowned for its broad range of great fishing water from rivers to gentle flowing willow lined streams. The world famous Tuki Tuki River has been rated one of the best all year round rivers in New Zealand. Our guide has over 30 years experience of fishing Hawkes Bay rivers.

Golf - Napier Golf Course, formed in 1896 is one of New Zealand's oldest. Over the years it has been the site of many New Zealand and interprovincial tournaments, in fact hosting the first ever New Zealand open in 1907. The 18 hole championship course provides an easy walking but always challenging test of golf both for the beginner and low handicapper. Visitors are always welcome.
