Hawke's Bay Naturist Club is the only naturist club in the Hawkes Bay district. Manawatu Outdoor Leisure Club lies 230 km to the southwest and Rotota Sun Club 150km to the northwest.

Our 4.5 hectare property is named "Rapere", a composite NZ Maori name, [Ra = sun, Pere = Bell], in honour of our founding President Norman Bell. More history can be found here.

Part of the land is flat and laid out in lawns with a clubhouse, lodge, swimming pool, games courts, children's play area and camping sites.
The rest is rolling hills with lots of trees where members have permanent baches (cabins) and caravans with attractive views over our grounds and surrounding countryside.

Members and visitors are welcome at Rapere at any time but Sunday is a popular day when you will find many members enjoying the naturist friendship at Rapere. Right from our first years it has been the custom to gather in the clubhouse at 3pm on Sundays for a cuppa and a chat.
