Waikato - Accessible/Easy Access Accommodation & Activities
The Waikato is heartland farming country - relaxing, gentle scenery while driving to any of the attractions listed here. The Waikato has become the centre of Middle Earth with the surprisingly accessible Waitomo Caves and Hobbiton - as accessible as it needs to be for most of you to see this unique little "settlement". Kiwi and other birds (such as owls) are at the Kiwi House in Otorohanga. There is coast as well - Raglan the home of a world renowned surf break - and Kawhia, more isolated, with typical rugged coastal scenery and placid harbour.
