Our diverse district is world renowned for its geographic heroes, Cape Kidnappers and Te Mata Peak, and its unrivalled growing conditions that make it the engine room of the regional economy.
Hastings city is the administrative hub of our 5229 square kilometre district, serving the main urban areas of Hastings central, Flaxmere and Havelock North, as well as a myriad of smaller coastal and rural settlements.

Hastings District Council
