Spring Guide to Central Hawke's Bay

Spring is the hero of Central Hawke's Bay where the daffodils bloom, spring lambs frolic and a dusting of snow covers the expansive Ruahine Ranges. 

Taniwha Daffodils is open this Spring from September 10-25 with the option to stroll through thousands of daffodils in bloom, pick your own bunch to take home or simply enjoy the sight of 20 acres of stunning colour. This one is great for the kids and can be fun for the elders too! Bring a picnic, and take in the beautiful scenery around you. Then take a venture and ride the extensive Tukituki Trails, with 30km of limestone track to explore. Looking for more advanced biking? Take a short turn down to the Gum Tree Mountain Bike Park where you will find a number of tracks with all different ranges of difficulty. Fancy a walk? Discover A'Deanes Scenic Reserve that consists of an easy native bush walk where you will come across its biggest feature, a large tōtara tree, about 34m high. Well worth the look!
