About Us

The extremely diverse topography of the Waihi region provides a rich playground for all to enjoy. Whether it's the stunning beauty of the Karangahake Gorge, getting out into bush clad hills or just relaxing on the beautiful white-sand of Waihi Beach, the Waihi region is a great place to appreciate what New Zealand's outdoors has to offer.

Waihi has strong community development initiatives in place, including those supporting culture and heritage, the arts and fitness and well-being.

Our gold-mining heritage is embraced and on display side-by side with current mining using modern-day extraction methods.  Just one of the reasons Waihi is New Zealands 'Heart of Gold'.
