Bike, hike, drink and dine… the roads from Cambridge connect you to it all. What’s more, some of the region’s best eateries are hidden away in Cambridge or close by. If good food and drink are high on your priority list, the town’s hospitality scene won’t disappoint.
Cambridge is nestled on the banks of the Waikato River, approximately 20 kilometres southeast of Hamilton. It’s lovingly known as the town of trees and champions by locals and visitors alike. Cambridge and nearby Lake Karapiro are home to many of New Zealand’s national sports organisations (cycling, mountain biking, rowing), and some of the country’s most high profile sports people. Nearly 20,000 people call Cambridge home, making it the third largest urban area in the Waikato. State Highway 1 connects the town with Hamilton in the northwest and Tauranga, Rotorua and Taupo in the southeast. Hamilton Airport is only a 15 minute drive from Cambridge and a public bus connects Cambridge with central Hamilton.
Cambridge is a beautiful town, ideally placed within easy reach of the Mighty Waikato’s best attractions.
