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.
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).
