NAPIER

Located in Hawkes Bay, Napier was rebuilt in the Art Deco style in the

1930"s after an earthquake and fires demolished it.

About 250 people died.

The fertile valleys surrounding the city are used for vineyards and

market gardening, with further away, for Sheep farming.

Its a pleasant city to walk around by yourself or on a guided tour.

We thought this city was beautiful, and well worth a visit.
