It's all about fork and cork in sunny Hastings, a city full of flavour and art deco charm.

You'll have a juicy time sampling the super tasty fruit from the orchards that surround the city of Hastings. There are also some 50 wineries to visit, so pace yourself. In town, 1930s architecture can be found at every turn. On Sundays there’s a farmers market loaded with goodies for a delish picnic. Soak up some rays in Cornwall Park or pack your swimmers for a dip at Splash Planet waterpark. Outside the city, climb the Te Mata Peak or hit the golf courses at Cape Kidnappers headland.
