 ABOUT HAVELOCK NORTH

 Havelock North is known locally as "The Village". It has retained its "Village" character and strong sense of community while growing and becoming part of the wider district of Hastings and province of Hawkes Bay.

A 10-minute winding drive takes you to the Te Mata Peak lookout. The 360-degree views over limestone cliffs and across the Heretaunga Plains are spectacular. On a clear day, especially in winter, Mt. Ruapehu can be seen over the Ruahine Ranges. Hang gliders leap from here at 399 metres above sea level. The peak is known locally as the "sleeping giant" and in Maori as Te Mata o Rongokako (the face of Rongokako). According to legend, Rongokako was challenged to eat his way through the peak to win the hand of the beautiful Muriwhenua. He choked on a rock and fell to the ground. You can see the giant lying on his back and the bite that choked him when you look at the Te Mata Peak skyline. 
   
     
Dining in Havelock North is an exciting experience - The Rose and Shamrock, a traditional Irish pub and restaurant has the ability to transport a soul to Dublin for the mere cost of a pint of Guinness and a delicious cottage pie.

Across the road at Diva the end of the day is reason for contemplation and celebration ... Diva is a place to talk, take on some good food and meet people. It is the place to go ... the place to find out who's seeing who and who's doing what and what's happening where. Nearby BJ's Cafe & Lounge offers relaxed and casual dining.
 
 
The Hawkes Bay Wine Country Food Trail takes in Havelock North gourmet treats, like the largest honey-producing enterprise in the Southern Hemisphere, Arataki Honey. Here you can taste pure New Zealand honey and view bees at work through a specially constructed glass wall. Local wineries are within cycling distance including the historic Te Mata Winery. Established in 1896 this is New Zealand's oldest operating winery site and the original stables building is still preserved and in use. Havelock North hosts a number of house and garden tours, music art and food festivals and events and has its own outdoor amphitheatre. An open-air Village Growers Market operates every Saturday from Labour Weekend until Easter. 
 

The Villagers extend a warm welcome to share their heritage and soak up the atmosphere of Havelock North.
