Location of Te Mata Peak

Te Mata Peak is a peak south of Hastings rising up to 399m in the Hawke’s Bay region of New Zealand. A sealed road leads to the popular lookout at the summit, as well as several trails for hikers and mountain bikers. The Hastings suburb of Havelock North is built on the slopes of the peak.

As the highest peak in the area, it offers views over the Heretaunga Plains, and Hawke’s Bay, including Napier. On a clear day, the view stretches as far as Mount Ruapehu and Mahia Peninsula.

The Park is located south-east of Havelock North village – approximately a 15-minute drive to the summit.
