Hamilton Holidays

Rub shoulders with nearly 150 000 residents in this Waikato locality.

This location can be found approximately 390 kilometres north of the capital city of Wellington and 9 kilometres north of Rukuhia.

Little tackers coming along? Fortunately, this area offers activities for everyone! One of the most popular destinations is the Monavale Blueberries. If the kids are still bouncing off the walls, you can head onwards to Waterworld, another worthwhile attraction.

Love the sound of clinking chips? Gather your lucky charms and strut your stuff at the SkyCity Hamilton.

Hamilton has a number of splendid gardens that possess some diverse plant species. Discover the tracks around the Hamilton Gardens or enjoy the atmosphere of the Alphra Lavenders. If you are based in the area near the Rose Garden, it can also make a handy spot to suss out.

Had enough walking around? Take time out in some of this region's many green spaces. Mosey on over to Memorial Park or the Chiddingfold Garden and soak up the relaxing setting. Alternate choices are Claudelands Park and Taitua Arboretum.

This region's completely free tourist office, Cambridge i-SITE Visitor Information Centre, is available to holiday makers who need help with what to do while here.

The Hamilton area's various waterfalls give people on holiday the chance to watch nature at work. Snap some pics and unwind at Bridal Veil Falls and Wairere Falls.

Put on your comfy clothes and spend an arvo at the well-loved outdoor attraction, Lake Hakanoa Walkway.

If you need a holiday from your holiday, it might be a good time to head to to head over to Kawhia Beach. Whether you enjoy going for a stroll up the coastline or just lounging back and cloud gazing, you'll be feeling back on top in no time.

Take a break from the buzz of the city and unwind in one of the awesome environmental reserves. Waingaro Hot Springs and Mount Pirongia are just two well-known choices. If you are in this neck of the woods, try Mount Karioi.

On the hunt for an educational activity for the kids that won't bore their brains out? With a range of exhibitions and activities, the entire family will be sure to have an awesome time at Zealong Tea Estate.

Been sleeping in late every day? Make up for your indulgent holiday habits with an afternoon spent exploring some of the local exhibition spaces. The Waikato Museum of Art and History and the ArtsPost display a range of captivating pieces that will be sure to get your creative juices going.

If you are a history buff, we highly recommend that you get lost in one or two of the numerous exhibition spaces in and around town. You are guaranteed to reappear from the Firth Tower Museum and the Founders Park with an abundance of new knowledge. The Kawhia Regional Museum & Gallery and the Te Awamutu Museum are also well worth a gander if you have some extra time up your sleeve.

There's a decent amount of things for history aficionados to get out and see while in the area. You can cartwheel back though the ages at the Ngarauwahia War Memorial and the Maketu Marae. If they merely whet your appetite, make tracks to the Turangawaewae Marae.

There are a variety of religious sites spread around this region that are certain to attract any visiting history nerds. If you're here for long enough, you can spend the day doing the rounds of Whitiora Bible Church, St Paul's Church and the Hamilton New Zealand LDS Temple.

A holiday away is always a unique experience because you'll never find two places that are the same. The less well-known sites in this area are also an integral part of the singular array of things to see and places to go. Grab your itinerary and pencil in stops at the Old School Arts Centre, the Riff Raff, and Waikato River.
