About Hamilton

The city of Hamilton sits alongside the mighty Waikato, New Zealand's longest river. Originally a farming town, Hamilton has evolved into a cosmopolitan and vibrant city with plenty to see and do.

After a shopping trip along the main street, enjoy Hamilton's cafe culture at any number of chic establishments. Visit the Waikato Museum to get your fill of culture, history and science.

If you're after rest and relaxation, get some peace and quiet in the Hamilton Botanic Gardens or meander along one of the walkways that follow the Waikato River as it flows through town. For a truly spectacular experience, try hot air ballooning over Hamilton at sunrise - the annual Balloons Over Waikato festival is also worth a visit.
