Visit Napier & Hawke's Bay
Napier and Hawke's Bay are popular for their rolling pastures and fertile vineyards and you could easily spend your entire New Zealand holiday enjoying the attractions of this one region alone.
You'll even find the place with the world's longest name - Taumatawhakatangihangako- auauotamateaturipukakapikimaun- gahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu
- which roughly translates as ‘ The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains (known as land eater) played his flute to his loved ones'. Unsurprisingly, it's usually shortened to Taumata.
