About Hastings

If you're looking for some of the best food and wine experiences in New Zealand, take a trip to Hastings. Known as the 'fruit bowl' of New Zealand, Hastings is located in the fertile Hawkes Bay region and is surrounded by orchards, wineries (especially in the world famous Gimblett Gravels area) and stunning landscaped gardens and parks which flourish in the sunny climate.

The city of Hastings is cycle and walking friendly - take a stroll around town and enjoy the sight of its Art Deco and Spanish Mission architecture. If you're visiting in the weekend, stop for a bite at the Hawkes Bay Farmer's Market, the oldest and largest weekly farmer's market in New Zealand. Kids will love a trip to water park Splash Planet, or head out of town to Cape Kidnappers and visit the large gannet colony for an amazing natural wonder.
