Travel Tips for Napier

Pettigrew Green Arena

by NZ_gurl

This is one heck of a stadium!! It's new and is in Taradale, it holds many functions such as Music Concerts, Conference & Meetings, Sports Events and Trade Shows & Expos. It has wonderful facilites with plently of parking and is really nice and tidy. Wonderful place and also supports alot of local things, such as our Science Fair etc. =) It's a gym so whatever you feel comfterable in. If you are going to watch a sports event, a good standard of wear is required but there isn't anything too strict.

Stroll along Marine Parade.

by worldkiwi

Marine Parade is Napier's premier avenue. On the seaward side of the road are the sunken gardens with a delightful fountain (that is well lit at night), flower beds, a beautiful green lawn, the curious sound shell, and of course the coastal walk that goes for kilometres to the south, beyond the city gardens. Marine Parade is a wonderful place to stroll on a sunny Hawkes Bay day.
Situated on this road are other key places of interest to tourists. These include: the I-site office (the first stop for information for all travellers); Marineland; the National Aquarium. Napier Museum is opposite the fountain on the city side of Marine Parade.

More Art Deco

by Kate-Me

The Art Deco style, for those not familiar with it, is said to have originated in the early 1900’s and burst opon the world at the International Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts, in Paris in 1925.

It is characterised by things like stepped silhouettes, usually geometric motifs in the stone work, angular patterns, zig zags and shapes, symbols such as lightning flashes, animals, and, sunbursts. In New Zealand from time to time it also takes some Mayan and other ancient influences for example Egyptian.

Travelling time is about 45 mins either way, from either Gisborne or Wairoa, for a safe comfortable journey.
Tiniroto road was a scenic option of reaching Gisborne from Napier. It was a beautiful drive, with many scenic sights. We came from Wairoa where the river valley views are just spectacular, especially with the coloured leaves of the Poplar & Willow Trees. We followed the Hangaroa River, well known for its trout, and stopped at the Te Reinga waterfalls.
Then nearly at Gisborne, at the top of Gentle Annie Hill, there were wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

We thought it was a really nice drive!

"Art Deco City"

We stayed with friends here in the city after a 5 week tour of North and South New Zealand ( a cricket tour with plenty of sightseeing included).

This picture was taken from the air when decending to Hawkes Bay Airport.. My friend lives by the 3rd Norfolk Pine from the right.!! along the beach.

New Zealands worst earthquake tragedy was on 3rd February 1931. Devastation was caused by this quake, which measured 7.9 on the Richter Scale.

What the shock did not destroy in Napier and neighbouring Hastings, fire did. Napier was closest to the epicentre, and heroic deeds were performed by rescuers and by naval personnel from a sloop, the HMS Veronica, which happened to be in the harbour.

The city was rebuilt in Art Deco style, and is well known internationally.
