Tokoroa is the 5th biggest town in the Waikato region and is located about 60km from Taupo north of state highway 1, it's a farming community town, enclosing the township are dairy farms and plantation forests of vast pine trees, the town itself holds a great deal of scenic reserves and hold a great deal of Maori history. 


The Tokoroa individuals are your common farming sailors from New Zealand. The the majority of the town's population are older, but the town itself homes a great deal of engineers and farmers who are generally pretty friendly. 


Tokoroa isn't your common tourist town, it's got a couple of hikes which are located just out of town. I recommend whenever you are here if you plan on hiking take a drive to either Taupo, Tauranga or even Rotorua which are located very close to the city.
