Waipa District



The Waipa District lies in the heart of New Zealand’s Waikato region, stretching over 1447 square kilometres, and encompassing the towns of Te Awamutu, Cambridge, Kihikihi, Pirongia and Ohaupo. The district has several large hydro lakes used extensively for water sports and recreation including Lake Karapiro, the home of New Zealand rowing.

Waipa District boasts a rich agricultural base dominated by dairy farming, but also featuring sheep and beef, thoroughbred horse studs, deer farming and fruit production. Waipa also hosts the largest annual agricultural exhibition of its kind in New Zealand, the National Agricultural Fieldays, which attracts visitors to the Mystery Creek Events Centre from all over the world.
