About Hastings

Hastings is located in the Hawkes's Bay region, one of the sunniest places in New Zealand. It's home to many beautiful examples of distinctive Spanish Mission style architecture, including the Hawkes Bay Opera House.

Known as the 'fruit bowl' of New Zealand, Hasting's warm sunny climate makes it a haven for orchards and wineries. Once you've finished your wine tour of Hastings, there are plenty more things to do in the Hawke's Bay. A visit to the famous gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers is a must-do, or head to Te Mata Peak for great views of the region.

With plenty of fun activities to burn some energy, the kids (and parents) will love adventuring in Hastings. Splash Planet, an exhilarating water park, is a fun family day out, especially in summer months! Hire a bike and explore Cape Kidnappers in your own time in on a fat bike, or head over to Napier and visit the National NZ Aquarium to see many marine wildlife species in the flesh (including the famous naughty penguins!).

Strolling through the inner city streets and admiring the unique architecture of Hastings is a relaxing and inspiring experience. You could also visit the Hasting Community Art Centre Gallery located within a beautifully restored Spanish Mission building.
