The Village

Havelock North is the vibrant heart of Hawkes Bay and a ‘must visit’ destination for anyone travelling to the province.

Founded in 1860 by a handful of hardy pioneers, Havelock North has flourished to become one of New Zealand’s most desirable places to live.

Gracious, historic homes and tree lined streets wind their way through the foothills of Te Mata Peak, while orchards and vineyards frame the place that locals simply call ‘The Village.’

There is no doubt it has a special charm. The Village is small enough to maintain its unique atmosphere but has the pizzazz to ensure that time spent in Havelock North is never dull.

It’s a discerning shoppers paradise. Boutique shops, specialist fashion stores and quality providores form a eclectic retail hub, and The Village boasts a café and bar culture that is the envy of other Hawkes Bay destinations.

There is no better place to base yourself when exploring all that our region has to offer.

Havelock North is the gateway to all of Hawkes Bay’s many attractions with world class wineries, Te Mata Peak, Cape Kidnappers, the Tuki Tuki River and a number of golden beaches on its doorstep.

Just over 10,000 kiwis call The Village’ home’.

We hope you love our place as much as we do.
