Waitomo is one of my favourite tourist towns in New Zealand, it is located in the southern Waikato district and is home to the very famous Waitomo Glow worm caves which are fricken spectacular. The town is also close to Otorohanga, Pataruru, Tirau, Tokoroa and Taupo. Be sure to check them out as well!.

What to expect.


Waitomo is full of nice locals with a great community. You can expect to be treated nicely when passing through as this is a thriving tourist town.

Hiking, Mountain & Trail Biking, Cycling

There are several good hiking tracks or walking routes around the Waitomo township. Lots of the walking tracks around the Waitomo also double as mountain biking tracks.

There are a lot of food joints around the city. See a few below.


There are a lot of backpackers and motels located around the city. See a few below.


Since Waitomo is such a small town looking for gyms can be difficult unless you're staying in a place which already has one.

The closes gym is in Otorohanga, you can check it out below:
