Location Map
Havelock North is a town in New Zealand, in the North Island's Hawke's Bay region. It ranked as a borough for many years until the 1989 reorganisation of local government saw it merged into the new Hastings City District. It lies seven kilometres to the southeast of Hastings itself, and has a population of almost 9,500. The town, known locally as "the village", stands on the Heretaunga Plains, and has a reputation for its orchards, vineyards, and educational facilities. One of New Zealand's most important wine regions centres on the town.
Havelock is generally hilly, as it is on the foothills of Te Mata Peak and small gulleys have been formed by the creeks and streams flowing from Te Mata Peak, resulting in a small amount of inaccesible or steep land which is converted into forests, parks or reserves, giving the local image of naturally having many bushes and trees.
