Hawke’s Bay is considered New Zealand’s showcase for heritage trail development, with 17 trails created since 1991. The trails are aimed at guiding locals and visitors around cultural, historical and other interesting highlights to discover the ‘real’ Hawke’s Bay.
Trails can be completed in your own time, any time of the year, using information brochures and trail signs to guide you. Best of all, the trails are a free activity. Collect a brochure from the Hastings i-SITE Visitor Information Centre or download from this website.
