About Te Mata Peak, Napier

This unassuming, 400 metre high peak provides many more opportunities than you’d think possible. A lovely drive leads you to the carpark at the bottom, from where you hike up to the top. From there you have breath-taking views of the Hasting countryside; the craggy hills, the ranges, the flatlands and the wide coastline; and it’s worth coming up here just for sunrises, sunsets, and stargazing or just a picnic. At a popular lookout point, you’ll be able to see the curve of the world beyond Hawkes Bay. If you’ve managed to drag a cycle up, have fun rolling back down. Off a steep side, you can abseil down to the bottom, or fly off the edge in a paraglide. It’s a heaven given cornucopia of outdoor activities.

Te Mata Peak, Napier Reviews

  • Te Mata Peak is an amazing lookout! Perfect spot for appreciating the beauty of Hawkes Bay. Photos don’t do justice for the quality scenery. The drive up is gorgeous with pine trees and little sneak previews of the amazing views!! Plenty of parking up the top. Many walking trails around the mountain. Top spot to visit if you’re a tourist in the area. 10/10

  • Spectacular views on a clear day of the entire Hawke's Bay region. Great bike and walking trails (separate trails) up and down the north side of the peak. Don't get me (or anyone else, for that matter) started on the trail down the south side!

  • This was a really awesome place to go up to. It was a nice sunny day and the views from the top of Te Mata were gorgeous!!

  • Loved going here again after all the years since I went there with Family to Restaurant near the Top youngsters are now going up there to do what we aren't sure of.Not good.

  • oh the view, also some mountain sports here, check it or if you are a thrill seeker.
