On the Map: Set in the Hawke’s Bay region of New Zealand’s North Island, Napier is known for its art deco landmarks. The city is roughly 220 km (137 miles) southeast of Rotorua and 320 km (199 miles) northeast of Wellington.

Napier and its neighbor Hastings, are rich farming lands supporting vast orchards, vineyards and sheep farming. Wool and fruit growing are the backbone of the region’s economy and Napier is quickly gaining an international reputation for winemaking. The town is home to many fine wineries, fabulous restaurants, bars, and cafes. After the violent earthquake of 1931, and subsequent fires, most of Napier’s commercial heart was destroyed. Napier’s harbour sustained a massive upheaval and 4000 hectares of new land was formed. The people of Napier rebuilt their city which has lent an art deco flavour to the downtown area. Nowhere else can you see such a variety of buildings in the styles of the 1930s; Stripped Classical, Spanish Mission, and Art Deco. Napier’s Art Deco style is unique with its Maori motifs and the buildings of Louis Hay – a famous New Zealand architect. For those lucky enough to visit in the month of February, be sure to check out the annual Art Deco Festival – a stylish celebration of all things 1930s!
