Well-known for its underground wonders, black sand surf beaches and rolling green hills, the Waikato region offers a wealth of nature-based activities and attractions surrounding a vibrant city hub.
You don’t have to be an enthusiast to enjoy the Hobbiton movie Set. Immerse yourself into Middle Earth and explore the hobbit holes and houses. It’s easy to imagin a hobbit walking out the front door at any moment.
The region is also well known for the Waitomo Caves. Experience the wonder of silently floating through the caves and witnessing the array of glowworms above. This can be done by boat or by tubing, both equally as mesmerising. If your adventure takes you to go deeper into the earth take a moment to explore the caves themselves or go black water rafting and abseiling.
This region has so much to offer from spending time in Hamilton with it’s picturesque gardens, popular nightlife and restaurants to surfing in Raglan. Did you know this spot has one of the longest left hand breaks in the world.
If hiking or cycling is your preferred way of exploring take some time to do the overnight bush walk and winding mountain bike tracks.
