Stunning views
Jun 2021 • Family
This is a must for all visitors to the area. Stunning views. We did the yellow walk first which was about 4km long and a decent walk through forest and hilly areas. Then we drove to the top!!

We saw people walking, biking and skating as we drove past on our way up to the peak. There are a couple of places you can stop on the way up where you get great views. Well worth a visit.

Absolutely worth it!

Gorgeous drive up. Stunning views of your surroundings. You can walk up but we opted for an easy drive up. Do it! And it’s free and well worth it.

A Must Visit
Apr 2021
Nice place to relax and admire the view, take a walk, picnic, rest & read a book with great views. A place to let the kids run off energy

Great View
Apr 2021 • Couples
Great view from the top.

You can walk up if you have time but will need a bit of fitness. We drove up. Worth noting that the road is very narrow in places and is one-way. Need to take care on the bends.

Amazing Views, great walking tracks. the upgrades done to the mountain bike/walking tracks are excellent, it's a pity they removed the zig-zag track as it was awesome

Must see site!

Te Mata Peak is simply stunning.
I've driven to the peak several times and it's a great experience to take in the wider Hawkes Bay. If you drive right to the top then it's suitable for people with impaired mobility although they need to be able to walk up a short steep gradient for the best views from the trig.

A view worth seeing!
Feb 2021
Visited this weekend with friends. Driving with care is needed and parking limited at the summit but the view is well worth the trip. We went for the sunset and the view was stunning! Recommend heading up at least 30minutes or so early if you plan to view the sunset as it does get busy. The gate up is closed at 10pm so don't stay too late.

This place is very nice. Lots of people and nice view. We went for a short trip for Christmas, the peak was busy but I loved the view of the place from the top. Go visit this place :)
