The Waikato covers some of the most interesting and diverse localities in the upper North Island.


You can find native forest recovery projects, geothermal hot pools from Rotorua up into the Coromandel and Firth of Thames, lakes for trout fishing, a migrating bird sanctuary, Maori culture, gold mining, giant cave systems, and or course, many stunningly beautiful beaches on both the west and east coasts.


Hamilton, at the heart of the Waikato, straddles the mighty Waikato river and is a haven for those who enjoy gardening. Every year hosts the Camper Care Motorhome and Caravan Show at the Mystery Creek Events Centre. 


We've only just begun to explore this region, starting in the Coromandel. We'll be adding much more over the last few months of autumn.
