Welcome to Napier, the friendly Art Deco capital, where history comes alive and dreams come true!
For 30 years the Art Deco Trust has been dedicated to the preservation, promotion and celebration of the Art Deco City of Napier.
Expert guides have taken thousands of visitors through the unique and colourful 1930s streetscape exploring the hidden gems of yesteryear either on foot, coach, mini bus or by the very luxurious vintage car. Hundreds of thousands of visitors have joined the party of the year at the Tremains Art Deco Weekend held annually in February and all have enjoyed visiting and shopping at the Art Deco Centre in the heart of the city.
The heritage integrity of the city has benefited tremendously under the care of the Art Deco Trust and many heritage buildings being saved from demolition or damage resulting from the new development.
Nothing will prepare you for what Lonely Planet describes as the ‘charismatic’ New Zealand city that ‘can provoke a Great Gatsby swagger in the least romantic soul’.
