Hawke's Bay lies on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island.  Gannet Safaris Overland's gannet tours depart from Te Awanga, a thriving coastal community situated mid-way between the Hawke's Bay cities of Napier and Hastings and the gateway to Cape Kidnappers.

Originally a beach settlement this stretch of coastline is now a jewel in the Hawke’s Bay crown. Home to many talented artists, the area is further enriched by wineries, restaurants,  the international golf course at Cape Kidnappers and the largest accessible mainland gannet colony in the world.

Local highlights include:

The Hawke’s Bay region is known for its diverse landscape, bountiful produce, award winning wines, unique wildlife, stunning architecture and rich cultural heritage. Visitors come to experience a region rich in delicious flavours and beautiful things, and to enjoy average year round temperatures of 19.3 degrees with plenty of sunshine.
