New Zealand's North Island - Waikato & the King Country (Chapter)
This is the Waikato & the King Country chapter from Lonely Planet's New Zealand's North Island guidebook.
If the colour green had a homeland this would be it, as verdant fields and rolling hills line New Zealand's mightiest river, the Waikato. Everyone, from adrenaline junkies to spa goers, is catered for here.
- hurl yourself into the subterranean stimulation of the Waitomo Caves and try some black-water rafting
- take a more genteel and sedate approach to getting wet at the Edwardian thermal spa complex of Te Aroha
- plot a pub crawl around Hood and Victoria streets in buzzy Hamilton
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Waikato, Hamilton, Raglan, Te Awamutu, Cambridge, Matamata, Te Aroha, Kawhia, Otorohanga, Waitomo Caves, Te Kuiti, Taumarunui and Owhango.
