Local Attractions

Hawke’s Bay is a holiday destination where the sun seems to forever shine. Famed for being one of the three major winemaking regions in New Zealand, Hawke’s Bay is home to internationally acclaimed wines and is the premier New Zealand destination for food, wine and lifestyle.

One of the most popular events is the  Art Deco Weekend on the third weekend in February  and a winter celebration in July, which revive the glamour, glitz and style of the 1930s.

Food and Wine events are held throughout the year and include a summer FAWC (Food and Wine Classic) in  November and a winter FAWC in June.

Activities and sporting events are numerous and attract much interest. Easter each year is the Big Easy, a family cycling event. The International Women's Hockey Festival is in April. The Horse of the Year in March, the Elite Cycling  & Festival of Cycling  in January  and the Air NZ Marathon in May. International  cricket and rugby fixtures draw many.  There is always something.
