Journey to the land of Hobbits and horses with a trek to the scenic hills of Matamata. This region is located inland to the east of Hamilton on New Zealand's Northern Island and features stunning natural attractions, as well as plenty of cultural events for pleasing everyone in your party. Matamata is comprised of rolling hills and grass country that's stunningly green for a majority of the year. With plenty of water features throughout, this non-coastal region surprises and delights with its fair share of riverways and more. Choose Matamata for your winter holiday and you won't regret it! With comfortable temperatures year round and limited rainfall, you can leave much of your heavy winter gear behind. But make sure to pack layers and a raincoat, just in case Mother Nature decides to spring a surprise storm. You'll find that the Matamata region is rich with history, from New Zealand's Maori past to more modern events, like the filming of the Hobbit movies. Settle in and stay a while, with plenty of activities and events for the whole family to enjoy.
