Welcome to Hastings
In 1931, most of Hastings was levelled by an earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale and was subsequently rebuilt in the Art Deco and Spanish Mission styles. Take a walk up and down Heretaunga Street, and you'll appreciate the architectural splendour that still stands! The old Opera House is undergoing major renovations and is a real stunner.
Hastings Distillers offers the best of New Zealand gins and Ya Bon, the crème de la crème of bread and pastries. Head to the end of the street, and you'll reach the clock tower and railway, which runs through the middle of the city square and through its water fountain feature. It's a sight to behold!
Enjoy a beer or two at the Brave Brewing Co offering the best of NZ craft beers, all produced on-site. Hastings is around 18km inland from Napier, and these two neighbouring cities are often called "The Bay Cities" or "The Twin Cities."
Hastings is one of the largest urban areas in Hawke's Bay and is also a food and wine production area. In 2010, the city became a walking and cycling "model community," and you'll see why when you get here. It enjoys an oceanic climate, and it's one of the country's warmest urban areas.
Hastings has charm and character and friendly people. The Sunday farmers market is also outstanding; you'll be hard-pressed to find a better hazelnut ice cream anywhere!
