The scenery is epic
The T moment I stepped off the plane at Hawke’s H Bay Airport, where you pick up your own bags from the back of a truck, I took a breath of fresh air and left work behind – 36 minutes later and I was in another world. Cape Kidnappers, a sandstone headland south-east of Napier named by Captain Cook after an abduction attempt by local Maoris, is rich with mountainous farmland. As we drove around the last hairpin curve, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was at the edge of the world, greenery and hills behind me, cliffsides and ocean ahead. There’s a diverse range of attractions, including a world-class golf course, and the view is a must.
