The scenery is epic

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Travel -

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.

Cape Kid­nap­pers head­land pro­trudes into the Pa­cific Ocean.
