About Central Hawke's Bay
Hidden Hawke's Bay
Central Hawke’s Bay is well known for its stunning natural landscapes, outstanding beaches, fishing and diving, golf, cycling, and bush walks. From Pukehou in the North to Takapau in the South, and spanning from the Ruahine Ranges to the East Coast, there is plenty to explore.
We have a number of fantastic Historic Homesteads and gardens which are steeped in history, waiting to be explored, the oldest was built more than 165 years ago.
Each offers something special - boutique accommodation, a venue for weddings and special events, or a special history tour and delicious High Tea.
Waipukurau is the largest town and agricultural hub of Central Hawke’s Bay, Waipawa is just five minutes north, and there are several smaller rural and historic settlements scattered across the region, each with their own personality and charm.
