Hastings District combines the best of country and city - from adventures in the great outdoors to fine dining and great nightlife,
it's all here.
There are walks for all - from ½ hour leisurely strolls around Te Mata Peak to overnight treks in the ranges where snow glistens on
the mountains in winter and the sun shines continuously in summer.
If that's not your cup of tea the following are but a selection of all we have to offer - trout fishing in the TukiTuki river,
jet-boating, kayaking, paragliding, hot-air ballooning, scenic flights, mountain biking, horse trekking, exploring the local beaches
and 4-Wheel drive adventures to Cape Kidnappers Gannet Colony.
But wait: there's more...
For the family: Splash Planet Fun Park, The Seahorse Farm, The Amazing Maize ‘n Maze, Beatles Museum, Omahu Bird and Animal Park,
Haumoana Farmyard Zoo and the Keirunga Park Railway - to name a few.
Hastings has a vibrant arts scene. Creative juices are flowing throughout the Bay, particularly in the seaside communities of
Haumoana and Te Awanga. Grab an art trail and discover some of the many painters, sculptors and ceramic artists
(the list is endless!) turning inspiration into art.
Many visitors base their holidays around one of the many nationally recognised events held here annually. Take your pick from some
of the following: Harvest Hawke's Bay, Hastings Blossom Festival, Matariki Festival, Hawke's Bay Winemakers Charity Auction, and
the Kelt Capital Spring Carnival with $1 Million stakes.
