Port of Napier

Whenever visiting a city I’m on the look out for lookouts. The city of Napier has Bluff Hill Lookout. This spot doesn’t have a view of the central city to the south. Looking north over Breakwater Road gives this great view down into the Port of Napier. In the foreground the purple flowers are agapanthus. They’re a pretty flower but here in New Zealand they are an invasive weed that has become a threat to native plants. Napier Port is the second largest export port in New Zealand. Exporting a lot of apples, pears stone fruit and wine grown in the Hawke Bay area. As you can see there is also a huge amount of wood that leaves the country from this port.
