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.
Enchantment and love, serenity and calmness – that’s what lavender is all about with perfumed fields waiting to be admired in many parts of the Waikato.
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).
