Hampton Downs / Te Kauwhata / Huntly / Gordonton

Te Kauwhata is a rural town situated in picturesque rolling farmland, nestled on the edge of Lake Waikare. Te Kauwhata features wineries where visitors can also enjoy great food whilst relaxing in the rural ambience. Be sure to check out the local craft shops.

Huntly has a number of lakes and walkways, including the Hakarimata Kauri Walk, where some of the most southern majestic Kauri trees can be seen. Huntly is also home to one of New Zealand's largest energy generation plants, the Huntly Power Station.

Gordonton is one of the friendliest villages in NZ. Situated 60 minutes southeast of the Bombay Hills, Gordonton boasts many successful businesses including trendy cafes, an excellent garden centre, gift shop and tearooms, patchwork quilting business and a photographic art studio. A great stopover for breakfast or lunch when travelling to Tauranga, Rotorua and most points South and East of the Waikato region.
