With a population of 141,000, Hamilton is New Zealand’s fourth largest city and is quickly accessed from Auckland which is only less than two hours’ drive away. Set in the tranquil farmland of the Waikato region, Hamilton’s gentle lifestyle is becoming increasingly popular with expatriates moving to New Zealand.
Located on the banks of the mighty Waikato River, Hamilton offers residents an easy, comfortable lifestyle, with short commuting times across the city and a relatively relaxed pace and overall vibe. With many reasonably priced residential suburbs surrounding the inner-city hub, Hamilton offers a better value for those put off by the high residential prices of Auckland & Wellington.
The city has excellent schools and education facilities for all ages and boasts its own excellent hospital. Public transport has long been an issue in the Waikato region with most residents favouring the motorcar rather than using public transport.
