The journey finishes in Napier and its art deco pastel beauty. Hawke’s Bay slogan’ Food and Wine country’ showpiece is Art Deco Napier. The town is framed by the sea, cliffs and a very attractive waterfront. Norfolk pines frame a marine parade with colourful timbered houses lining the main road into town. Victorian facades are rare in a town that suffered a devastating earthquake in the 1920’s. Out of the rubble emerged a town modelled on the art deco architecture complete with soft pastel colouring. Today the pretty town is home to several significant museums, art galleries, established parks and gardens and the bonus of Hawke’s Bay reputation as one of New Zealand’s food bowls. Vineyards, orchards and dairy farms surround the town. Town and country merge creating fertile ground for a fusion cuisine. The joy of edgy menus in innovative cafes and restaurants truly supports the ‘food and wine country’ motto.
