Central Hawke’s Bay District, New Zealand

Executive summary by darmansjah

With a population of only 13,500 Central Hawke’s Bay district located in New Zealand’s North Island is like a breath of fresh air. Waipukurau, the hub of CHB, settles along the serene Tuki Tuki River, and is home to the Aero and Gliding Clubs, which hold the annual national aerobatics championships. This town is also a magnet to visitors and backpackers who enjoy home or farm stays, as well as picturesque views of Ruahine Ranges and hills.

From 6 to 9 September, the town will host the annual CHB The Festival, featuring a series of events including art, design and fashion exhibitions, wine and food tasting at selected cafes and vineyards, plus a BBQ workshop that not only provides you with recipes but also focuses on the skills and techniques of barbequing.

Fly Singapore Airlines from Singapore Changi Airport and Malaysia Airlines from K.L. International Airport to Auckland Airport, then transit to Hawkes Bay Airport. From there, take Bay Express buses to Aipukurau along the route hat runs between Wellington and Napier via Palmerston North.

Hineiti Homestay is a relatively new house situated on the outskins of Waipukaurau, with two double ensuite rooms and wide rural view. There is easy access to local beaches, golf courses and wineries and less than an hour drive from Hastings and Napier.
