Ahuriri is a place imbued with history. Inhabited for hundreds of years the area provided shelter and food sources for Maori. The shallow harbour was safe anchorage for ships trading with the Hawkes Bay. Since the 1931 earthquake forced the relocation of the Port to its current site the area became a hub for industrial activity and warehousing. Today Ahuriri renaissance sees repurposed warehousing into retail outlets, shops and art stores. While Ahuriri architectural layers reflect the history of Napier today it is a place of relaxation and entertainment. The quintessential weekend destination makes Napier a popular choice year round for couples wanting a break.
