Welcome to the Hamilton & Waikato North Region

About the Region

Hamilton is the major city of the Waikato, a region dominated by gently rolling farmland and a dairy industry stronghold. But the region holds much more than can be summed up in that appraisal.

Raglan is a mecca for New Zealand surfers, while the Waikato River, which is the longest in New Zealand, is the lifeblood of a vast eco-system.

Hamilton is a small but steadily growing, attractive city built along the banks of the mighty Waikato River. Hamilton is also the home-base for Super Rugby team the Chiefs, which Generation Homes is proud to sponsor.

A 2014 estimate put the Waikato’s population at almost 431,000, while Hamilton’s population stood at 184,000. Those figures are sure to grow much larger in coming years as the region enjoys a big influx of people moving from Auckland because of cheaper house and land prices, spurred by greater connectivity to Auckland through major roading improvements.

The Waikato region has hundreds of schools , 11 tertiary education institutions and five hospitals.

North Waikato towns such as Te Kauwhata and Pokeno are strong growth performers as more and more Aucklanders settle south of the traditional Auckland border defined by the Bombay Hills.

The advancement of Hamilton’s Rotokauri zone for major residential and commercial development, as well as Dixon Road, near Waikato Hospital should ensure that the Waikato Generation Homes team are kept busy helping new customers into quality houses in the years to come.
