With its superior accommodation and state of the art design, Argent Motor Lodge in Hamilton is perfectly located close to the Waikato region’s many family-friendly activities.

If you want to get up close and personal, the “Meet the Keeper” sessions run daily and will leave the kids fascinated by interesting trivia, and the Eye 2 Eye and Face 2 Face tours are a unique behind the scenes experience where you can learn more about the zoo’s amazing creatures.

Find some Middle-earth movie magic in the lush green countryside near Matamata, where the Hobbiton scenes from The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy were filmed. The whole family will be inspired on a two-hour guided tour of the movie set where you can see the hobbit holes tucked into the hillside and learn about a significant part of New Zealand’s film history.
