Enjoy a lifestyle that brings happy, relaxed days with plenty of new opportunities. Great for your health, great for families and great for whatever you like doing when the work day is done.

Summer is from October until March when the sun sets between 8pm and 9pm. The weather during the rest of the year is also pleasant. This makes Hawke’s Bay a great region for people who love to be outside.

There are museums and art galleries, New Zealand’s oldest Farmers’ Market as well as beaches for swimming, surfing and boating, and kilometres of cycle trails. Visit Hastings at the start of spring (September) for its glorious Blossom Festival, or Napier in February for its Art Deco celebrations. New Zealanders love their sport and Hawke’s Bay is no exception with a diverse range of sporting facilities and outdoor sports fields.

Hawke’s Bay presents a smorgasbord of beautiful scenery, award-winning wines, gourmet experiences, family fun, unique wildlife, stunning architecture, rich cultural heritage and outdoor adventure and sporting activities. Our Mediterranean climate means long hot summers and mild, sunny winters, making Hawke’s Bay the perfect environment to relocate to. We are home to fabulous award-winning wines at over 70 wineries, as well as delightful fresh produce, and great dining experiences for all occasions.
