Welcome to Waitomo
Waitomo is a popular tourist destination and a perfect stop on your way from North to South when doing your New Zealand camper rental road trip. Home of the famous Waitomo Glow Worm Caves and Hobbiton, you’ll find plenty to do. We recommend at least a two days in Waitomo. There's great scenic walks to do around the falls, as well as those in the caves. In nearby Hamilton you can visit the beautiful Hamilton Gardens, or stop in Pokeno for some icecream that's world famous (in New Zealand). For the adrenaline junkies, the glow worm caves also offer the oppurtunity for black water rafting, with multiple options available to suit any level of adventurous spirit. Pop over to Matamata to tour the Hobbiton movie set, and see why New Zealand scenery is such a big hit with international filmmakers. Hire a campervan with Mighway, and let the journey unfold!
