Māori tourism offers you a unique insight into our world that has been shaped by our ancestors, our culture, our traditions, and our environment.
At the heart of it all is manaaki manuhiri - care and respect for all people, from all places. We share with you our stories, our people, our place.
You may arrive as a stranger, but you will leave Aotearoa New Zealand as members of our whānau (family).
Nā reira, nau mai, haere mai!
The Waikato is well known for its nature-based tourism, underground wonders, Middle-earth movie magic and iconic Waikato River. Explore Hamilton (Kirikiriroa) City’s urban attractions, the stunning black sand surf beaches of Raglan, and ancient bush-clad mountains. The region is home to the iconic Waitomo Caves and Hamilton Gardens while parkland and mountain ranges offer fantastic walking, hiking and cycling trails. A slice of the ‘real Middle-earth’ can be found near Matamata at Hobbiton Movie Set. Find out more at hamiltonwaikato.com
