Description

This informative and historical self-guided audio tour will take you on a journey to the past to see the areas that were devastated by the 1931 and how they have been rebuilt. Including survivors stories, get a better insight to the past tragedy. Combine your audio guide with a map detailing the area of your tour as well.

Learn about the devastation and rebuilding after the infamous 1931 Napier Earthquake in this informative audio tour. The damage was not restricted to Napier but spread to this farming city of Hastings and beyond where many buildings were destroyed and lives lost.

It did not take long for this city to rebuild and many of the buildings are reputed to be even better than they were prior to the Earthquake.

You’ll learn about the effects the earthquake had on buildings such as the Former Post Office and the iconic Clock Tower and hear stories regarding the old Roach's Department Store, St Mathew's Church, Las Palmas, the Hawkes Bay Farmers Building, the Dominion Buildings and Credit House, the Karamu Chambers and the Public Trust Building, the Albert Hotel, Municipal Buildings, the Opera House with the Wesley Methodist Church, the Municipal Power House and the Woman's Rest with the Hastings Centotaph. This tour is memorable and poignant and includes survivor's tales.
