On the banks of the Waikato River lies Hamilton, a pretty, active city on North Island. With popular museums and parks, great urban sights and good walking routes, you can fill your day sightseeing in Hamilton, then sit down in one of the cafes or restaurants. The river, perhaps best seen on a scenic boat tour, provides a range of activities from sporting to leisurely. Take a gentle stroll along the river and head into the town to see its abundant gardens. Add Hamilton and other destinations in New Zealand to your travel itinerary using our New Zealand itinerary maker.
