About Hamilton – Waikato
If you’ve ever wanted to dine like a Hobbit, today is your lucky day. And this is your lucky region. The city of Hamilton is nestled along the banks of the Waikato River, just over the hill from Frodo’s Bag End. But if Lord Of The Rings isn’t your thing, fill your magic cup by looking at the glow worms in Waitomo caves, learning to surf at Raglan, exploring the magnificent Hamilton Gardens or visiting the Mount Maungatautari Sanctuary, a haven for endangered birds. Whether you’re kayaking Lake Kararipo or riding the Hauraki Rail Trail, the Hamilton and Waikato region sets the scene for a relaxing escape.
