- Surrounded by thriving orchards, market gardens and flourishing vineyards, Hastings sits at the heart of sunny Hawke's Bay, a region famous for its award-winning wines and Art Deco and Spanish Mission architecture.
- The Hastings Heritage Trail is a great way to discover the town’s art deco gems – you can pick up a copy of the brochure at the information centre.
- Wine and food lovers will find themselves at home in Hastings. There are award-winning wines and superb winery restaurants to try, or head to the Hawke’s Bay Showgrounds on Sunday mornings and sample the local gourmet treats at the Hastings Farmers Market. Hastings is the fruitbowl of New Zealand, growing apples, nectarines, peaches, apricots and kiwifruit. Stock up with fresh fruit at the roadside market garden stalls.
- Love the water? Then you'll love Splash Planet, NZ's first fully themes water park! Try the double dipper dual tube ride and the sky castle screamer; drift on the never-ending river, and fight in the pirate fortress pool complete with cannons. Plus the cafe does good coffee if you don't want to get wet.
