Waikato Regional and Travel Information

Centrally located and close to everywhere, the fertile Waikato region offers visitors an exciting array of tourism adventures and attractions, to suit even the most discerning traveller.

The serene Waikato river, which rolls through its biggest city, Hamilton, dominates the scenery and is without a doubt, the districts greatest asset.

The cruise vessel "Te Awa Kuini" takes regular cultural cruises along the river, while patrons enjoy an interesting historical commentary.

Auckland airport is under two hours away, but the region has its own international airport, only a 30 minutes travelling time from Hamilton
Shopping is excellent and Hamilton offers a wide range of cafes and restaurants. Its exciting nightlife reflects the vibrancy of it being one of New Zealands largest cities.

The region has a natural scenic beauty, with the beautiful harbour of Raglan, with its world class surfing, only a 30 minute drive away.

For those seeking a fishing expedition, a horseback riding adventure, or a soak in natural hotpools, the eco-wonderlands of Kawhia and Aotea harbours, are only approx. 1 hours drive distance.
