You’ll find info and articles below on how you can learn delicious recipes from local chefs and explore the region’s great walks and cycle trails.
While this is a challenging time for everyone staying home and social distancing is key to ensuring the safety of us all. We know our Waikato community is one of innovation, creativity and community spirit. We know we are great at adapting, finding new ways of doing things, getting behind local initiatives and supporting each other. He waka eke noa: we are all in this together.
