Te Mata Peak

Standing 400m above sea level, Te Mata Peak offers stunning 360-degree views of Hawke’s Bay. Maori legend says Te Mata Peak is said to be a sleeping giant who preyed upon the Heretaunga Plains until he fell in love with the chief's daughter, and decided to woo her instead of making war. She set him a task to eat his way through the hill, but he choked on a rock and dropped to the ground, where he still lies today.
