Our tour guide Jamie was at the wheel of the big bus yesterday with 44 guests from @vikingcruises on board our Family Farm tour out to Tuki Tuki Dairy goats. Where they milk over 1300 goats.
The guests were lucky enough to arrive at milking time. #farmtours #goatfarming #nztravel #nztours #nzfarming #familyfarm #travelnz🇳🇿 #driverguide

We are proud to announce Hawke’s Bay has just been named as the 12th Great Wine Capital of the World, joining an elite network of prestigious wine areas across the globe such as Bordeaux in France and the Napa Valley in California.
This is the result of a joint project between Hastings District Council, Hawke's Bay Tourism, Hawke’s Bay Winegrowers, Napier City Council and Hawke’s Bay Airport. This is a great boost for our region and will help attract international and domestic visitors, and reinforce our wine industry’s gold standard reputation which will be crucial to our economic recovery post Cyclone Gabrielle.
