BTW, those rails in Hawke's Bay, a little higher up, are they still used? Passenger rail to Napier doesn't exist anymore, if I'm correct.
You are most welcome mate, thanks for the great comments Unfortunately there is no passenger rail and no trams either I presume that the rail line that crosses through Hastings is for freight only. I hope that I get to see passenger rail between Auckland and places like Napier during my life time Cross fingers.

Out of the bad came some good, the 2010 Christchurch earthquake will also help reinvent that city and boost the economy

If I may ask, how well are these buildings protected agains a new earth quake? It doesn't seem totally unlikely you'll have another one somewhere in the future...

I was wondering the exact same thing yesterday One would hope so and I am sure that when these buildings were built, the memory of the earthquake was still fresh in their minds and they probably made sure that there was some sort of strengthening. The Hawke's Bay area experiences tremors all the time and let's hope that they remain small Thanks for the comment

Thanks sweet-pea Napier is a city and located 421 km to the South East of Auckland. I hope that this bit of information helps

I'm not a big fan of their way of cutting those trees, however. But once again, what a scenery.

Yeah, it is rather unusual but it is a great wine estate, fantastic place to chill and sip on a looooong glass of wine
