About Us

Nestled in the Waikato region and positioned between the mountains and sea, Hamilton is a city of parks and gardens, fine cuisine and cafes, culture and attractions.

The Waikato region – with Hamilton at its heart – is a region of lush, green hills, bush and farmland, with exceptional surf on the West coast. Discover bush-clad mountains, stunning waterfalls, hot mineral pools, beaches and, of course, the magical limestone glowworm caves in Waitomo. Charming small towns are dotted throughout the region, each one with its own specialty.

Centrally located approximately 90 minutes from Auckland, Tauranga and Rotorua, Hamilton and the region are a great base for any holiday in the Central North Island. Go to www.visithamilton.co.nz for more information about city and regional tourist attractions.
