It is a beautiful urban destination with pretty public and private gardens and parks and bustling pedestrian oriented public squares. Situated on the fertile banks of the Waikato River, the vast plains of Hamilton are patch worked with the patterns of colourful cultural life. It is a great place for rejuvenation or else you can enjoy the excitement of different sporting and cultural events including rugby matches, the National Agricultural Fieldays and the Balloons of Waikato festival. However the Hamilton Gardens Summer Festival is the most popular of them all when the city hostels and bed and breakfasts are packed up with tourists from all corners of the globe. Hamilton is also a luxurious den of world-class wining, dining and accommodation facilities with unique attractions and activities. Several offers for apartments for rent are available near the attractions of the city like the Hamilton Zoo, the Waikato Museum of Art and Culture, the Art Post art gallery, and Sky Riverside casino.
Hamilton has developed rapidly to a major commercial junction since its inception as a small Maori village hundreds of years ago. Today it provides accommodation to more than 1.5 million people in its metropolitan area. The topography of the city is dominated by the encompassing low hills and the central Hamilton Lake. It is also home to the famous University of Waikato that came up with latest technological innovations for agriculture in New Zealand.
