Te Mata Peak Road, Havelock North 4130, North Island.



Standing 399 metres above the Heretaunga Plains, Te Mata Peak is both a visual feature and an integral part of Hawkes Bay history, Maori and European. Enjoyed by nearly 1 million people annually, the Park offers visitors stunning and varied scenery, unique topography, geology, flora and fauna and a wide range of recreational activities. Drive to the Top A rite of passage for local residents and visitors alike, the drive up Te Mata Peak is a real thrill and the views from the top are amazing. Watch out for sheep, walkers,cyclists and tight bends on your way up to the top car park. From the trig point at the summit, the 360 degree views take in the beautiful Heretaunga Plains, the Ruahine and Kaweka Ranges, and on a clear day you can see as far as Mount Ruapehu. [Please note that the upper section of Te Mata Peak Road above the Peak restaurant is closed to vehicles between 10pm and 5.30am every day.] Dogs are very welcome in the Park.

A spectacular, sometimes one lane road all the way up to the peak. Plenty of room for even big rigs to park & turn around at the top. Amazing views.



Awesome view
