What you can expect

Step back into the 1930s in lovely, seaside Napier, exploring at your own pace as you follow the lead of a handy and informative audio-guide. Download your tour in advance, print out your maps, and then hit the streets to scope out the town's Art Deco atmosphere and architecture.

Charge up your smartphone or Mp3 player, download your audio-guide, and then grab your headphones to set out into beautiful Napier. Listen as your guide directs you around this coastal commune, strolling the city streets as you hear about the 1931 earthquake that destroyed much of the area around Hawkes Bay, leading to the rebuilding of the city in the predominant architectural style of the time—Art Deco.

Meander through the rebuilt city as you listen to commentary about the architects and builders tasked with reconstruction. Make your way down quaint and colourful streets as you seek out memorable architecture, impressive statues, Maori motifs, and Mayan influences. Hear about Napier's dynamic festival and events scene, listen to music from the '30s to set the ambiance, and take in all the Gatsby-esque glamour of a bygone era in this charm-packed town.
