History buffs will appreciate the impact that the devastating earthquake of 1931 had on shaping the growth of the city and surrounding area. At the time, Napier was a small coastal town overlooking a large lagoon. Following the 1931 earthquake however, the entire lagoon and surrounding shoreline were thrust up more than two meters out of the water, adding a total of 2230 hectares of "new land" to the town. Take a stroll and observe how the rebuilt city of Napier reflects cool art deco style of architecture prevalent throughout the 1930's.
Napier offers everything you could possibly want to do on holidays. Test your angling skills in fishing spots. Taste the famed Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from one of the wineries.
