Hamilton Zoo

Waingaro Hot Springs

 

Otorohanga

Te Aroha

 

 

 

Hamilton Gardens

Considered one of Waikato’s top attractions, the Hamilton Gardens are themed ‘the story of gardens’ and showcases everything from a Japanese contemplation garden to an English rose glade and an Italian Renaissance spot. There’s something here for every gardening interest, and for those whose thumbs are less than green, there’s also a restaurant and a café.

 


Waikato Museum of Art and History

This establishment near the Waikato river focuses on the history and artwork originating from the region. Its collection of Waikato, Maori and Pacific Island art is considered one of the best in the world.

 


 

Hamilton Zoo

Set in 25 hectares of tranquil surroundings, the Zoo is home to over 440 native New Zealand and foreign species. Among the attractions are the largest walkthrough aviary in Australasia, a reconstructed wetland area and the Freeflight Sanctuary, a safe haven for endangered birds.

 


 

Waingaro Hot Springs

These thermal springs at Waingaro, about 20 km northwest of Hamilton, are a fantastic way to cure aching muscles. Equipped with pools, spas and hydroslides for the young (and not so young) this is a great place to soothe your cares away.

 


Otorohanga

This is the official ‘Kiwi Town’ of New Zealand, where visitors are most likely to see the elusive national bird, the kiwi. Observe these shy, nocturnal birds at the Kiwi House and Sanctuary, get a historical perspective at the Museum, and lighten your wallet at the numerous stalls selling locally produced crafts and souvenirs.

 


 

Te Aroha

Nestled in the foothills of Mount Te Aroha, the beautiful spa town of Te Aroha is famed for its hot mineral water springs, which include the world’s only naturally flowing hot soda pool and hot soda water geyser, and these have long been revered for their therapeutic properties. Visitors can also summit Mt Te Aroha, tramp through the beautiful surrounding national parks or enjoy the spectacle of the mountain glowworms on a night walk.
