As pacey or as relaxed as you like.
Anyone who has visited the Hawke’s Bay region knows that you need a bit of time to see everything on offer. The only problem is agreeing on just what to do (or perhaps you could do it all!) because there truly is something for everyone to enjoy.

In the meantime, here are some ideas to get your juices flowing!
Think about a fantastic cycling trail to kick things off. Hire a bike then pedal away on well-maintained tracks to discover world class wineries and blissful restaurants. Give your bike a rest and find a gentle horse to ride, a beautiful beach, a Rush Munro ice cream. If you can squeeze even more into your schedule, visit the Farmers Market, then … how ‘bout yet another award-winning winery?
Splash Planet Water Park is close by and you don’t need to pretend to be a child to enjoy this one – it’s a must visit for kids and adults alike. Located just minutes from the Fairmont and spread over 6.5 hectares of sub-tropical gardens you can set a whole day aside to experience the rides, attractions and excitement of this modern water-theme park.
The Keirunga Park Railway is a rather more relaxing option but also perfect for little kids (and big!) Who doesn’t enjoy the steam and squeal of a locomotive as it rounds a bend? The fact that this loco is miniature only adds to its charm.
