Waikato Holiday Parks
At the centre of the North Island is a diverse region beginning with the vibrant city of Hamilton surrounded by rolling green farms and the country’s longest river. So much to explore from the Hobbiton Movie Set, the fascinating Waitomo Caves and black sandy beaches of Raglan.
Located only 2 hours south of Auckland you’ll find the energetic city of Hamilton, home of Waikato University, the lush Hamilton Gardens and a lively town filled with shopping, great eateries, nightlife and museums. Just south of Hamilton is the charming town of Cambridge, rich in thoroughbred racing history and famous for Lake Karapiro and growing rowing champions. Cambridge is a great place to enjoy an array of water sports. Just to the East is Matamata, home of the Hobbiton Movie Set and must do when visiting New Zealand. To the West are the world famous Waitomo Caves. Millions of years in the making these vast underground caves are visually spectacular and offer a range of attractions from tubing, black water rafting and glow worm sightings. Close by is the Kiwiana capital of New Zealand, Otorohanga and the Kiwi House where you are assured to see a residential Kiwi bird. A bit further to the east are the black sand beaches and surfing paradise of Raglan. A laid back beach community with kiwi attitude.
