The lookout at the top of the TeMata Peak has superb views over a huge area of Hawkes Bay. If has many walking, running and mountain biking tracks of varying degrees of difficulty.

Best to go up there early in the day for the best photos, especially for photos out to the west and the ranges

For the best overview of Hawkes Bay wine country, this is the place to be. Fabulous 360' views from here over land and sea. A steep and narrow drive up to this peak is well worth the effort. My niece visiting from the UK closed her eyes for most of the drive up and down, but was full of praise... More

I live in Napier and have many visitors. First on my list is ALWAYS taking them up to see the view from Te Mata Peak on a fine day. I like to mix up the time of the day and think the late afternoon is lovely as the shadows on the hills make them stand out more and are stunning.... More

A great spot to view Hastings, Havelock North and northern view to Napier. Narrow road access towards the top. Ample parking. Take Insect Repellant as at times the area is infested with "sand flies". For athletic types a great walk/run from the entry point to the peak. A must for any visitor to Hawkes bay.

Went up Te Mata Peak on a beautiful April morning and had an impressive view of the Hawkes Bay region. Sandflies aside, it would have been perfect!

Brilliant 360° view for the top, and definitely feels like you've earned it if you walk up rather than drive!

This was a stop on our Odyssey Tour of the city. It gave one an aerial view of the entire area, and a worthwhile stop for photos.

The view from atop the face of Rongokako was amazing. We were so grateful that he was lying there for us to ascend and enjoy the 360 degree views of the land he once sought to conquer.
