Hastings is located in beautiful Hawke's Bay on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. The city is a famous place for travelers on a working holiday visa, as there are many job offers for fruit picking in the summer season, as all the city is surrounded by vineyards and orchards.

But also for every other tourist, Hastings is a nice place to visit -- you can find heaps of wine tastings and walk around the city centre and have a look at the Art Deco houses. Also the farmers market on Sundays deserves a visit, it offers many fresh made and local products. In summertime you can find many fresh fruits and veggies just at the side of the road. As there are many artists located in Hawke's Bay and it's the "agricultural heart" of New Zealand, a tour of different wineries and art studios could be interesting to learn about some local stories, artists and the amazing taste of local wine.

Hastings offers a wide range of backpacker hostels that can be inexpensive on a per-night basis, or if you plan to stay long-term, there are several offers for weekly rates.

In around twenty minutes by car, you can reach the neighboring city of Napier, which is also worth seeing, as it is right on the beach and has the cute Art Deco houses in the city centre.
