The Waikato is a wondrous, vital place with a touch of magic. The underground wonder of the glow worm-studded Waitomo Caves, and the middle-earth movie magic of Hobbiton Movie Set are on the doorstep of the region’s main city of Hamilton.
Many popular attractions are within a comfortable hour’s drive of Hamilton city, so self-drive is a popular option with many car hire companies on hand to assist if need be. Hamilton and the Waikato is readily accessible – easy to reach and to get around. Flying in, travelling by train or bus are all options.
