Hawke’s Bay is considered New Zealand’s showcase for Heritage Trail development, with 17 trails created since 1991, a higher number than any other region. Early trails covered Waimarama, Highway 50 in Central Hawke’s Bay and the Napier waterfront, which has since been incorporated into the Ahuriri Walk.
The newest trails help visitors explore the Morere district in Northern Hawke’s Bay and the heritage areas of Havelock North. The trails are aimed at guiding visitors around cultural, historical and other interesting highlights, helping them discover the ‘real’ Hawke’s Bay. They are popular because visitors can do all, or part, of a trail in their own time, any time of the year, using information brochures and trail signage to guide them. Best of all, the trails are a free activity.
One of our proudest achievements is that this tremendous work developing trails throughout New Zealand has been accomplished almost exclusively through volunteer efforts, fundraising and sheer determination.
The Heritage Trail Foundation is a member of Green Globe, the world wide environmental program for the travel and tourism industry and won the American Society of Travel Agents and Smithsonian Magazine Environmental Award . This Award recognise’s and honours those individuals, countries or organisations that have made a significant impact in preserving and protecting the environment.

Woodville Organ Museum is a unique collection of old reed organs, mostly the pedal type but several multi-manual with pedals and blowers. Age goes back as far as the 1860s. At present we have over 75 reed organs in our collection.
It is located in a large building which we have also made our home, so there is someone here most of the time, but we don’t have definite opening hours. You can just drop by and ring the doorbell, or ring ahead to make sure we will be home. We welcome especially people who play the organs, or who wish to sing hymns with them.
Our main aim is not just to preserve these beautiful instruments but also to glorify God by preserving the sacred music that they historically produced.
