Welcome to the Waipa / Coromandel Region

About the Region

Straddling the inland regions of Waipa – which includes Cambridge to Matamata-Piako and the Hauraki plains, then stretching to the east coast to include the Coromandel peninsula, this is an area of breath taking beauty and high contrast.

Rolling, fertile plains typify the inland areas – so much so that Peter Jackson built the “Hobbiton” set as a permanent feature near Matamata (try calling in for a beer at the Green Dragon Inn next time you’re around). Lake Karapiro near Cambridge is the home-base for New Zealand’s renowned Olympic gold medallist rowing squads, and Cambridge itself is a strong-hold of the New Zealand equestrian and thoroughbred industries.

The Coromandel peninsula is a playground for anyone keen on fishing or boating, and its beaches including Cathedral Cove, Hotwater Beach, New Chum, Whiritoa and Paunui are world famous.

The coastal towns of Whitianga and Whangamata have undergone huge growth in recent years, and Pauanui continues to be a summer retreat for well-heeled Aucklanders.

The area is intimately linked with the Waikato region, and the population is well served by hundreds of schools. Thames Hospital specifically serves the Coromandel area. 

The area’s natural beauty and affordable land marks it as an area of high growth which should ensure that the Waipa-Coromandel Generation Homes team are kept busy helping new customers into quality houses for many years to come.
