Is the grass greener in Hamilton?

With 145 parks and gardens, 63 sports areas; a mild climate and moderate year round rainfall – we would say yes it is!

Not only is the grass greener – there are many other reasons to make Hamilton your home.

We are the largest inland city in NZ, the centre of the of the upper North Island’s developing road network; have a young and innovative population (over 50% of the population are under 30) and home to a vibrant cultural, sporting and entertainment hub.

Not that this spoils the natural beauty of the area – Hamilton is at the centre of one of the richest agricultural areas in the world and with the mighty Waikato flowing through its centre, you will be spoilt for choices to recharge your batteries.
