Waikato

Home to rolling green hills, world-famous surf breaks, spectacular caves and The Lord of the Ring’s Hobbiton, the Waikato is full of surprises.

The city of Hamilton is its hub, but the region is dotted with smaller towns, each with their own unique flavour. Raglan boasts the world’s longest left hand surf break. Visitors flock to Matamata to see the set of Hobbiton from The Lord of the Rings. Waitomo is famous for the incredible underground cave network, while Te Aroha is a great place to soak in historic hot soda water springs.

Must-do

  • Hamilton Botanic Gardens
