Matamata-Piako is made up of three small towns and rural communities in the Waikato Region – Matamata, Morrinsville and Te Aroha. It’s an area of breathtaking scenery, rich in history and is so distinctly rural New Zealand. Visitors can make the most of a relaxing rural stop over, or experience an adventurous few days here with all the activities the district has to offer.
The Matamata-Piako district has something for everyone. There's all the benefits of a small town like safe communities, free parking and no traffic lights, but it's close enough to Hamilton and Tauranga to enjoy the city life. It's just over half an hour to the beach, only 90 minutes to Auckland and a couple of hours from the ski fields.
