Discovering Waikato for the First Time #NewZealand



Waikato is a beautiful area, where one can take a campervan hire in New Zealand and explore all the amazing places to see. Whether you visit in the spring, summer, winter, or fall, you can rest assured that Waikato is delightful any time of the year.
For those who are discovering Waikato for the first time, there are several things that you will not want to miss out on. To ensure that you have the best time possible while visiting Waikato, read on:
       Waitomo Caves-How about exploring the underground world of the Waitomo caves, where not only will you be amazed by the incredible designs, but you will also be captivated by the glow worms that light them up. It is truly an interesting place to visit, and one that you won’t want to miss out on seeing while in Waikato.
       Hamilton Gardens-Are you looking for a romantic place to spend the afternoon? Hamilton Gardens is a gorgeous garden that you can visit for free. You will be able to appreciate the different themed gardens they have there, from the Italian Renaissance to the Chinese Scholars garden. A lovely experience for those who appreciate greenery and flowers.
       Bridal Veil Falls-Located in the Waikato region, the Bridal Veil Falls are romantic and inviting, where you can take plenty of pictures from above or admire them from below.
       Raglan-The abovementioned falls are on the way to this seaside town that is a must-visit, especially for surfers. With big waves and plenty of beaches, it is the ideal destination for anyone who wants to catch a good break. With the only seaside resort in the area, make sure to book in advance if you want to skip the campervan for a night.
       Hobbiton Movie Set-If you are a movie nerd, you may love the idea of visiting the movie set where parts of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies were filmed. It’s a charming place to visit as you imagine the presence of little hobbits walking around. It looks just as beautiful as it does in the movie, so rest assured that you won’t be disappointed.
       Maungatautari-If what you are looking for is some time in the wild, a visit to the Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari forest will be a rewarding one. There you can hike up to Pukeatua Peak or visit the wetlands where you can observe the Tuatara and Takehe enjoying their natural habitat.
       Cambridge-For a real countryside experience, drive your campervan on over to Cambridge, where you can see plenty of horses, green pastures, and also go kayaking or rowing on Lake Karapiro. After enjoying the scenery and outdoors during the day, you can go and enjoy a great meal at one of the local restaurants or visit a weekend market in the centre.
Waikato has a unique atmosphere and landscape in New Zealand, yet maintains the charm and beauty that the country is known for. It’s easy to drive around in a campervan here, making it an ideal destination for your New Zealand road trip.
