North IslandHawkes BayNapier

A self-guided walk through Napier's art deco precinct

Its free to walk around and enjoy the amazing decorative and colourful buildings of Napier's Art Deco architecture. Go to the Napier info centre or the Napier Art Deco Trust shop for directions on the best places to walk. For a cost of $7.50 you can buy the Art Deco Self Guided Walk Booklet which while not essential it is a good little investment to get the best out of the city.

If you like Art Deco, this is great: a compact area of three streets gives you so many examples of the architectural features and lettering that characterise this 1930's style - very well maintained too.

A paid for leaflet from I-Site showing a walking tour, plenty of information but directions were a bit hard to follow. Probably better with a quided tour. Napier Antiques on Tennyson Street is well worth a visit - almost a museum of all things art deco. Their prices seemed reasonable too. Also take a (steep) walk or drive to Bluff Hill which has fine view over harbour and good information plaques describing areas of activity in the harbour

The walk is nothing if you compare it with the nature and the rest of New Zealand.
