  • The trust offers a fantastic walking tour of the city center where a real life museum of 1930s buildings can be seen. Our guide was super knowledgeable and full of interesting facts and snippets of information. The morning started with a fascinating film about the 1930 earthquake followed by an hour long walkabout.
  • Napier is a great little town to visit. Clean and friendly atmosphere. Lovely vineries near by. Spectacular beaches. Discover Ocean Beach south of town.
