Hamilton & Waikato Tourism and its Chief Executive have been announced as finalists in two categories in the 2019 New Zealand Tourism Awards at the Tourism Industry Aotearoa Summit in Wellington today.
Abseiling into one of New Zealand’s deepest caves, visiting our world-famous movie set and experiencing our magical glowworms are just some of ‘The Mighty Waikato’ attractions featuring in Tourism New Zealand’s new global campaign.
The 2019 National Contemporary Art Award, worth $25,000 and one of the richest in the New Zealand art world, will be determined in a week’s time by this year’s judge, Dr Fiona Pardington MNZM, at Waikato Museum Te Whare Taonga o Waikato.
New boutique accommodation, gourmet dining options for group travel and wildlife experiences are just some of the new Waikato products being showcased to the world at our country’s largest tourism trade expo.
They come from very different backgrounds. But two people, both passionate about Te Awamutu, say the time and place is right for a combined discovery centre and museum that finally tells the story of the New Zealand Land Wars.
