Hawke’s Bay Region, NZ

Hawke’s Bay is the renowned wine-producing region in New Zealand but I went there on the first weekend of August which is still winter and unfortunately, it was raining most of the days I was there. 

Napier is a coastal city known for art deco. I stayed here for 3 nights with the hope of visiting the nearby towns but then again it was raining. I got couple hours of sunshine before I had to leave though so that’s something. 

I got to visit the National Aquarium of New Zealand which is not that big but this is where I got to see real kiwis for the first time. I watched the cute little penguins being fed and I saw some interesting creatures. They also have a huge squid which I think is better than the one at Te Papa Museum in Wellington. 


I like Napier’s Marine Parade which has the tree-lined waterfront promenade. 

I visited Arataki Honey which was so cool specially the Bee Car. LOL


Of course, there’s the famous Cape Kidnappers which was closed for the winter. Got some nice photos though. 



I went to Te Mata peak but it was just okay for me but maybe this place is better when it’s not winter. 

And the rest are just beautiful random photos taken along the way. 😊


Hawke’s Bay region is definitely a place I would want to go back to after the winter. Nonetheless, it was nice to see it even though I was stuck in the hostel for couple days. 😉
