A metropolitan city situated on the banks of the mighty Waikato River, Hamilton’s rich cultural mix and vibrant centre makes it a perfect place to experience the friendly Kiwi lifestyle.
The vibrant café and bar scene is making a name for itself, and plentiful open spaces mean the city is an easy place to spend time in. The city is also rapidly gaining a reputation as a business hub for creativity and innovation as well as a destination for world-class international, national and local events.
Arts and culture form an important part of the city’s makeup with the Waikato Museum paying homage to Hamilton’s past and the present through its exhibitions.
