Napier and the surrounding Hawke's Bay region:
Napier and the surrounding Hawke's Bay region have a typical Mediterranean style climate with some of New Zealandís highest sunshine hours. This makes the region famous for its high producing vineyards, apple and stone fruit orchards and wide range of horticultural crops.

Hawke's Bay's two main centres, Napier and Hastings make up the bulk of the province's population, and are only 20 km apart. Napier, largely a retail centre, is situated right beside the ocean and utilises both its shipping port and airport as vital transport links with other New Zealand centers.

Napier is world famous for its Art Deco architecture, which is a major avenue for the city's tourist industry. Other links with information about Napier:
