Hawke’s Bay

I visited Hawke’s Bay on three separate occasions while living in New Zealand, but what follows here are photographs from my trip to Napier on 27 December 2016 after having completed the Lake Waikaremoana Track (which I hiked from 24 to 26 December 2016).

More Art Deco buildings in Napier – after the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake, most of the city was leveled, so it was rebuilt in Art Deco style, which was popular at the time.
Even more Art Deco buildings found on Hastings Street.
