A mere 1½ hour drive from Taupo over the ranges that to a Mediterranean climate;
Hawkes Bay has long hot summers as well as clear blue skies in the middle of winter.
Hawkes Bay is one of the sunniest regions of New Zealand. Sheltered by ranges to the west
the Hawkes Bay landscape opens up to reveal rolling hills and fertile plains. The perfect
environment for orchards and, of course, internationally acclaimed
The city of Hastings and the township of
Havelock North are nestled among the orchards
and vines. The Art Deco City of Napier sits by the
glistening waters of the Pacific - paradise!
With an annual average of 2200, sunshine hours are high, while rainfall and humidity are
low. In fact, Hawkes Bay has the second highest sunshine hours and the lowest rainfall in
the North Island, so whatever time of the year you visit, you're pretty much guaranteed to have
sunny, dry weather - perfect for exploring this stunning region.
Cape Kidnappers marks the southern-most point of the
bay. The cape is a short drive out of any of Napier, Hastings or Havelock North, and a walk
along the coast under its distinct rugged cliffs, an excursion to see the world's largest
mainland Gannet colony, or teeing off at one of the world’s top 50 golf courses makes for a
great day trip.
