A Leisurely Agenda in Hawke's Bay The twin cities of Napier and Hastings are the heart of sunny Hawke’s Bay, a region known for its award-winning wines, sunshine and gourmet produce. Napier and Hastings are a huge drawcard for visitors who come to see their art deco gems. The towns were rebuilt after the Hawke’s Bay Earthquake of 1931, and now contain some of the world’s best examples of deco architecture. You can take one of the daily walking tours that leave from the Napier Information Centre, or visit Hastings and drive the Heritage of Hastings Trail.
