Taradale is in the heart of Hawke's Bay, one of New Zealand's premier lifestyle destinations. With its coastal Mediterranean climate, life is centred around fresh local food, award-winning wines and countless outdoor activities. A holiday in Hawke's Bay is not complete without a shopping spree at one of the Farmers' Markets. Visit www.hawkesbaynz.com to plan all your holiday activities. Hawke's Bay may look like a small dot on the map but you should plan to spend at least three days here to really experience what we have to offer. And do not worry about driving very far because everything is nearby.

Go Cycling! bike Over 200kms of Hawke's Bay Trails let you walk or cycle from beaches to wineries to rivers and everywhere in between. Redcliffe Homestead borders on the Water Ride section of the Trails. Bicycles can be arranged.

Hawke's Bay is also a great place to slow down and relax. Sit on the beach and be the first in the world to see the sun rise on a new day. Gaze at the night sky, away from big city lights, and watch the stars in all their glory. Or go for a walk in the bush. Explore the great outdoors with the help of the Department of Conservation.
