The Waikato is the first region south of Greater Auckland. It has two spectacular landscapes—one above ground, the other below.

Above ground the view is dominated by the serenity of the Waikato River and the rich rolling green of productive farmland. The main centre is Hamilton - a city that serves the thriving farming and university community. Hamilton is diverse, home to over 80 ethnic groups. It is also a relatively ‘young city’ with around half its residents under 30 years old. Hamilton is spoilt for choice for places to relax and enjoy. The city is home to some of the most spectacular gardens in the country, including the international award-winning Hamilton Gardens, an internationally recognised zoo, one of New Zealand’s largest aquatic centres, and world-class international sports stadiums and event facilities. Hamilton’s south end boasts an arts and cultural precinct, with inspiring exhibitions at the Waikato Museum, music and theatre, and an impressive selection of cafés, bars and award-winning restaurants.
