Marine Parade information
Napier's elegant seaside avenue is lined with huge Norfolk Island pines, and dotted with motels and charming timber villas. Along its length are parks, quirky sunken gardens , a minigolf course, skate park, sound shell, swim centre and aquarium. Near the north end of the parade is the Tom Parker Fountain , best viewed at night when it's lavishly lit. Next to it is the Pania of the Reef sculpture, with her dubious boobs.
