It is a very special moment walking through the forest of memories. Then it’s on to Central Hawkes Bay museum where you feel you’ve just walked into a nineteenth century parlour. Consider finishing the day at one of Hawkes Bay premier vineyards, the Mission Estate. It’s a pleasure to wander through the heritage monastic estate with a monk / vintner explaining the importance of wine making as a viable way to support the Catholic church. The two towns of Waipukurau and Waipawa are only  6km apart, linked by a ribbon of State Highway two. Read more about What’s so great about Waipukurau and Waipawa: what to see, best things to do.
