About Napier

The Hawkes Bay city of Napier is famous as the Art Deco capital of New Zealand. In the 1930s Napier was almost entirely destroyed by an earthquake, resulting in its rebuild in this distinctive and attractive style. The city's annual Art Deco festival celebrates its famous architecture with many events all around Napier, including parades and concerts.

Napier is blessed with a warm, sunny climate, getting some of the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand. As a result it's a great place for agriculture, with the surrounding Hawkes Bay region being well known as a producer of wine and delicious fruit.

Visitors to Napier can enjoy attractions like The Hawkes Bay Museum and Art Gallery, the National Aquarium, and any number of winery tours.
