Havelock North is a satellite suburb of Hastings, but interestingly the community sees itself as an independent entity. Havelock North represents wealth, and it manifests itself in the township and the people. This is quite a fascinating place.

Havelock North is also a very young place and experienced most of its growth in the early 50ís and 60ís, but has continued to grow, particularly as local people seek to align themselves to the town. In the Hawkes Bay, Havelock North is best address in town.

Havelock North lies seven kilometres to the southeast of Hastings itself, and has a population of over 10,000. It is generally the residence of the wealthier people of the region.

The town, known locally as "the village", stands on the Heretaunga Plains, and has a reputation for its orchards, vineyards, and educational facilities. The town's industry is based around its fruit and wine production, and includes a winery

When the town was developing, all things that make a town were new, and to that end the churches and locations were planned. So too the War Memorial, town square and hotel.

Havelock North as yet does not have a museum.

Havelock North business and commercial centres have no vacancies and that says it all.
