Taradale & Puketapu

Take your foot off the accelerator and experience life in the slow lane this summer with a road trip through Taradale and Puketapu, two of Napier’s most charming suburbs. A cruisy 15-minute drive from downtown Napier, Taradale is a self-contained, residential suburb with a village hub offering unique shopping, wining, dining and cultural experiences within a relatively small distance. 

Fancy exploring further afield? Another 5-minute drive west and you will find Puketapu – a rural suburb boasting spectacular scenery, delectable food and award-winning wines. 

With plenty of idyllic sights to explore on your doorstep, and attractions to suit any taste – this is an ideal road trip if relaxed exploration is at the top of your holiday agenda.
