Explore Hawke's Bay

The Hawke's Bay coastline stretches in an unbroken curve from Cape Kidnappers to Mahia Peninsula on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand. The ranges to the west give way to rolling hills and alluvial plains. These plains provide much of the land used by the region's orchards and vineyards. A network of rivers crosses the plains, which are much valued for fishing, swimming, canoeing and jet boating.

The coastal city of Napier boasts a magnificent harbour and port. From the lookout at the summit of Napier Hill 360 degree birdseye views of the city, harbour and countryside can be enjoyed.

While you're staying at Greenhill Lodge, we encourage you to explore this unique region, and take in some of the many special offerings, from wine and food to golf, fishing, architecture and art.

Hastings is about 15 minutes drive from Napier. It is the region's agricultural capital, running west to east to Te Mata Peak.

Te Mata Peak is an important landmark, rising to 399 metres above sea level. It is one of the first places in New Zealand to see the sun. From the summit it is possible to see large tracts of the province. On clear days Mt Ruapehu is visible. Havelock North is on the Te Mata Peak foothills, and is a charming and rapidly growing village.

Hawke's Bay has an array of activities and attractions to offer visitors to the area. Probably best known for its abundance of award winning vineyards and its Art Deco architecture - Napier having the highest concentration of Art Deco buildings anywhere in the world.
