    Cape Kidnappers is located on the East Coast of the North Island in the Hawkes Bay Region. A short drive from Napier is the Cape Kidnapper Gannet Reserve. It is the largest and most accessible mainland gannet colony in the world.This popular tourist destination is home to 1000's of Australasian Gannet or Takapu as the Maoris call them. I would enjoy the pristine beauty of the Cape even if these unique birds were not there.

  • Explore the coastal wineries

    by sallyr69 Updated Feb 10, 2011

    There are a lot of coastal wineries next to Cape Kidnappers, Elephant Hill, Clearview, Te Awanga Estate, and Beach House Winery. There's a good range from modest to not so, we had a fantastic day cycling around them (rent bikes from www.winecycles.co.nz) after our Gannet Safari. Very flat, easy ride no problem for us "mature" cyclists!
