Waikato Region

Landmarks · Waterfalls · Caves
Just south of Auckland lies Waikato Region, an area with a temperate climate and swathes of lush, green farmland. Hike around the foothills and pastures where Peter Jackson filmed "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit," or head underground into the vast and numerous cave systems. Whether you're an expert or want something a little more placid, you'll find plenty of outdoorsy things to do in Waikato Region. A rich biodiversity entertains nature lovers and birdwatchers, while the coastline offers some of the country's best surfing locations. Customize your holiday with our New Zealand online itinerary planner to create an adventure that suits you.
