About Napier

The seaside town of Napier is known as the Art Deco capital of the country. Every February the Art Deco Festival draws huge crowds to celebrate the city's rebuild after a destructive earthquake in the early 1930s.

The Port of Napier is one of New Zealand's busiest ports and is a stopover for many cruise ships. Napier's wonderful climate gives it some of the highest sunshine hours in the country - no wonder it's the largest producer of apples, pears and stone fruit in New Zealand.

There are many activities to choose from when visiting Napier, including The Hawkes Bay Museum and Art Gallery, the National Aquarium as well as winery tours.

Simply walking through the city centre of Napier is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Admiring the town's unique art deco architecture and strolling along Marine Parade provides views of the ocean, beautiful gardens and interesting sculptures.
