Te Mata Peak - Review

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

  • A very good place for tracking, there are 5 tracks (violet, yellow, red, blue and green), each track has a different level of time and difficulty so that you can select the one you like. The longest track takes about 2 hours and a half. There is a large car park at the entrance gate. You can drive to the peak, there are some car park spaces, but not very large. Following the tracking, there are a lot of stunning views. You need tracking shoes because it may be slippery when wet. Toilet and drinking water fountain are at the entrance gate.

  • Watch out for drivers when coming up/down the road as it’s narrow and people are careless. Absolutely worth the trek to the top. Beautiful views of Hawkes Bay.

  • Get some decent shoes on, a full bottle of water and go and do it. A good walk out in nature. Some cows to have a chat to along the way. Great way to get that weekend exercise in with the 2 hr hike

  • Easy accesible, you can get to the top by car. Beautiful 360 degree views

  • Great hiking tracks heading to the summit Has several different tracks to choose from If driving up by car, drive slowly as the road is shared by hikers/cyclist & other vehicles. Roads are narrow so be cautious Plenty of parking space at the top car park Great view from the summit Great place to get your fitness back on Not too good for pushing a wheelchair from the car park to the top of the viewing platform as it's not user friendly for disabled ppl or easily accessible to get the wheelchair up the walkway because of how steep it is!!
