Attractions in Hamilton include gardens, riverboat cruising and a giant free flight aviary. Excellent restaurants and cafes can be found at the southern end of the city’s main street. A detour towards the coast will take you to Kawhia, where you can dig your own hot pool between low and mid tide. Just before the turn off to Waitomo, you’ll come to Otorohanga. The kiwi house in this town is a chance to meet New Zealand’s national symbol. The Waitomo Caves region is famous for its subterranean splendour.
