      Hastings Earthquake Self-Guided Audio Tour

      Hastings, New Zealand
      From (USD) $20 Per Audio Guide
      • Heroism and heritage: The 1931 earthquake killed 93 people and leveled many buildings, but determined rebuilding left Hastings bigger, better, and more beautiful, much of which is preserved as a living time capsule of Art Deco and Spanish Mission architecture.
      • Downtown: See the clock tower rebuilt to hold the bells from the collapsed Post Office, the unique train tracks running through the city center, and hear survival stories from Roach's Department Store.
      • Heretaunga Street: This is the main shopping street in Hastings, and the many Art Deco edifices here give window-shopping extra flair.
      • Earthquakes and everything else: Learn about the earthquakes that have hit Hastings since the infamous 1931 temblor; see the clock tower sheep, and what remains of earthquake-damaged buildings on Hawkes Bay.
      • Easy and inexpensive: Your confirmation email includes a one-time download link for an audio tour and corresponding numbered map. Just put on your headphones and hit play – each attraction is a separate track, so you set the pace.
