The Waikato is one of the most progressive cities in New Zealand.

We also live beside the might Waikato River that stretches out to amazing lakes where water skiing/trout fishing and much more can happen at the end of your working day in summer. We also don’t like to brag but we do have a world class Rugby Stadium (go the Chiefs), Seddon Park (one of the few Test Cricket grounds left in NZ), Raglan (Surfies paradise for those with no fear) and Mount Maunganui (getting a car park near the beach in summer is like winning lotto!!) and both just over an hour’s drive away!! We are also only 1.5 hours’ drive from Auckland City Centre.
