The region is renowned for its horticulture, with large orchards and vineyards on the plains. In the hilly parts of the region you find sheep and cattle farming.
You will not be surprised this is a foodies paradise. The local farmers market is a popular attraction. When you visit pop in at the local i-SITE for a map of all the vinyards and food places.
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; notably red wines – cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah.
In Hawkes Bay you will find many colourful Art Deco buildings, stunning views from Te Mata Peak and Cape Kidnappers, walking and cycling trails, golf courses, museums, and a gannet colony!
