Fodor's Expert Review Hastings

Hawke's Bay Town/Village

Napier's twin city doesn't have the same concentrated architectural interest. But the 1931 earthquake also did a great deal of damage here, and buildings in its center exhibit similar art deco flourishes. The Westerman's Building, on the corner of Russell and Heretaunga, is one prime example; it now houses the town’s i-SITE center. Hastings is 18 km (11 miles) south of Napier, down Highway 2.
