TeMata never disappoints, run up and around the different tracks twice a week, the views are stunning especially from the top. Well worth a visit

Spectacular look out even on a cool day. A steep and testing drive to get to the carpark but well worth it for the 360 views of the Bay hinterlands and ocean.

This is a must see attraction when you visit the Hawkes Bay and all it costs is your petro! :) Choose a gorgeous day (winter is great if you are keen for some beautiful walks) You can drive right up to the summit and on a clear day you can see Mahia Penisnsula and right over to Mount Egmont ~...

If you visit Hawkes Bay you cant miss this. Its an awesome walk if you have the time and the weather is nice. There are heaps of different tracks, some suit our 3 and 6yr olds just fine, others would be best for the fitter folk with longer legs. If you don't have time to do a walk just make... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the views Te Mata offered. The drive up was very windy (curvy) but well worth the views. We would've explored the trails more if we had come prepared with better shoes. The trails were well used by runners and cyclists. There were routes up to the view point from a lower car park as well.... More

The road up this ridge is ridiculously scary but the view very worthwhile. You can walk from a lower car park if you prefer. There are some very short walking tracks at the peak.

If it’s a clear day weather-wise this is a great place to get a view right across the region - we were fortunate from that point of view. The sealed road runs up to the summit (where there is a car park) however it is narrow and winding in the latter stages so not for drivers with a nervous disposition... More

A must do for visitors to the Hawkes Bay. The views from the top are breathtaking. You can drive or if you choose hike or cycle.
