Surfing enthusiasts will love having access to their choice of beaches both to the east and the west. Visitors during winter will be interested to know it is a short 3 hour drive to the snow fields.

The mighty Waikato River flows directly through the middle of Hamilton and provides much of the life force of the region.

It provides a scenic background to a driving tour in one of our campervan rentals.
