The place for a perfect life
Our stunning lakes, rolling green hills, beautiful forests and lack of a single traffic light make for a perfect work-life balance.
South Waikato has the amenities you need: schools (including one of the country’s largest tertiary providers), healthcare, and recreational facilities.
There are so many ways to enjoy the great outdoors; from golf to fly fishing, to mountain biking to water sports. Or you can hop in the car and take an easy drive to the ski fields on Mt Ruapehu or your choice of beaches on both coasts.
South Waikato’s central location is handy for extending your job opportunities too. It’s close to most of the North Island’s major cities: Hamilton and Tauranga are an hour’s drive away, Auckland just over two. The completion of the Waikato Expressway will reduce that travel time even more. So having your home in the peaceful surrounds of the South Waikato and commuting to work in one of the larger centres is a viable option.
