Hamilton and Waikato
Welcome to the Waikato region
A geographically and culturally diverse region, the Waikato has a range of activities and attractions to suit all ages and tastes – from our vibrant city hub of Hamilton to the rugged west coast, underground wonders and middle-earth movie magic.
Fruit never tastes better than when it is freshly picked, and with the array of orchards in the Waikato region offering ‘pick your own’ options, it makes for a great family day out.
From casual strolls along the river to overnight bush excursions and winding mountain tracks the Hamilton & Waikato region has a variety of great walking trails to suit everyone.
Find regional information, accommodation, transport and activity listings, plus a regional map and more in the Hamilton & Waikato Official Regional Visitor Guide.
These are unprecedented times for our visitor sector. Our region has been significantly impacted across all areas – international visitor arrivals, corporate business events and travel, major events and all businesses who serve the visitor economy (hospitality, accommodation, retail, transport, venues and tourism operators).
