Clive/Waipureku heritage trail reveals its rich history

Clive Church My Hastings 2

If you’re after an outdoor activity with something for everyone this summer, why not take a ramble  on the new Clive/Waipureku heritage trail that’s been created by the Hastings District Heritage Trails Society Inc.

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.

The Clive/Waipureku trail is the latest addition to the programme, traversing the township whose history has been shaped by the rivers and waterways that have historically been used for transport and industry by both Māori and later by the European settlers. This trail explores some early building sites in Clive, its environment and the history of its location.

These sites include such features as Clive War Memorial Statue, St Francis Cooperating and St Joseph’s Catholic churches, early cemetery sites, Waipureku Pa, Waitangi Regional Park and the Waitangi Treaty site, and much more.

Go to to download a copy of the guide and enjoy a trip back in time.
