25 October - Hawke's Bay Anniversary Day in New Zealand
Award-winning food and wine, outstanding architecture, and warm balmy days surrounded by magnificent landscapes Hawke's Bay is pure paradise. Hawke's Bay has 17,886 ha of horticultural land, the third largest area in New Zealand behind Canterbury and Marlborough. The largest crops by land area are apples , wine grapes), squash, and peas and beans.
Captain James Cook, sailing in HMS Endeavour, entered the bay on 12 October 1769. After exploring it, he named it for Sir Edward Hawke, First Lord of the Admiralty, on 15 October 1769, describing it as some about 40 miles across.
This part of the New Zealand coast is subject to tectonic uplift, with the land being raised out of the sea. For this reason, the coastal land in this area has significant marine deposits, with both marine and land dinosaur fossils having been found inland.
