Tourism Sector

New Zealand’s tourism industry is enjoying an upsurge in interest and we are experiencing growth in most international visitor markets. The Waikato district is experiencing its fair share of that growth but recognises that there is much untapped potential in the district. Come and explore it for yourself, we welcome you with open arms.


Culture and Heritage

The Waikato district is steeped in history and continues to be shaped by haunting calls from the past and the jointly-held hopes for our future. Major cultural events continue to be centred in the district as Waikato people commemorate, honour and remember our shared heritage. We have a strong sense of belonging, driven by a turbulent history between Māori and early settlers and the fact that today, Waikato remains the centre of Māoridom and the Kīngitanga movement.


Live

Waikato boasts strong and vibrant communities, great schools and huge lifestyle advantages. Growing numbers of people are bringing their families to either start a business or to join a business and live here.
