Lifestyle

Hawke’s Bay is located on the east coast of New Zealand on the North Island. It is renowned for its warm climate, award winning wineries and relaxed lifestyle.

Hawke’s Bay is also known for the wide variety of fresh produce available. There are always many events around the region throughout the year, from food and wine to sports events, concerts and the famous Art Deco festival.

Sports and culture are well catered for with facilities including a recently remodelled Opera House, museums, art galleries and sports arenas. There is a large base hospital and an Institute of Technology whose Viticulture qualifications are now internationally sought after. The region is also home to some of the country’s leading state and private secondary schools.

Scenic attractions include the world’s largest onshore gannet colony (Cape Kidnappers), excellent golf courses, walking tracks and waterfalls and the region hosts several classic road cycle races.

The region’s twin cities of Hastings and Napier have enjoyed strong employment and population growth, which is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.

The biggest employers are in the health/community services sector, trade and hospitality services, rural production, processing/manufacturing and business services.

Hawke’s Bay contributed 2.9 per cent to national GDP, provided 3.4 per cent of national employment and was home to an estimated 3.4 per cent of the national population in the year ending June 2018.
