Bay View is a settlement in the Hawke's Bay region of the eastern North Island of New Zealand. It lies on State Highway 2, nine kilometres north of the city centre of Napier. It is administered by the Napier City Council. The Esk River flows into the sea just to the north. Hawke's Bay Airport and the Napier suburb of Westshore lie just to the south. The area was previously known as Petane[1] and was seized by Maori in the early 1860s with the idea of attacking Napier.[2]
