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.

  • . (03/2017) Awesome mountain ranges. It requires little careful drive over narrow road towards the peak. Once you reach at the top, the views are amazing. Lot of tracks spread throughout these hills and you can easily spot some trampers around. The site is well maintained. A must visit place in Hastings.

  • If there is one thing you must do whilst in Hastings, its visiting this peak! It's an easy drive all the way up to the summit, though the road narrows for the last few hundred metres. The views on the way up are amazing and the view from the top breathe taking. Do it!
