At the heart of the Waikato region is Cambridge, known locally as the town of champions due to its gold-medal winning Olympian residents and its long-standing and illustrious heritage of thoroughbred racing.
Flanked by horse studs and rich pastures Cambridge’s peaceful tree-lined streets are full of interesting fashion and homeware stores along with chic cafes. The heritage trail or Walk of Fame is a must for any cultural buff and horse stud tours are available for those interested in equine pursuits.
Take a walk around Lake Te Koutu at the top end of Cambridge town centre or laze for a while under the shade of a tree around the fringe of the village square, where there may be a game of cricket or weekend market under way.
