Home to historic villages and majestic homesteads, boutique shopping and charming wineries, as well as some of New Zealand’s most spectacular countryside, Central Hawke’s Bay is a gem waiting to be discovered. Central Hawke’s Bay is booming with strong population growth and increased property sales.

Central Hawke’s Bay is a great place for kids with the newly revamped Russell Park playground and the Tukituki Trails which are fantastic for bike riding. The more adventurous might like to head to Backpaddock Lakes, a purpose-built watersports park, while those after a more relaxing afternoon need only travel to Oruawharo, where high tea in the gardens is a delightful diversion. Waipawa’s jewel is the Central Hawke’s Bay Settlers Museum. Children and adults alike will enjoy the museum’s exhibitions on the everyday life of early settlers.
From Waipukurau, a journey inland towards the rugged Ruahine Ranges will find lush pockets of native bush, incredible walks and tramps, and a quaint historic village to top it all off.
