Fun for the whole family these Christmas Holidays

Have fun for the whole family these Christmas Holidays with Argent Motor Lodge In Hamilton

By Kimberley Gilbert

Make the most of the Christmas Holidays by taking the family to the abundance of family-friendly activities in the Waikato region.

The Waikato has it all whether it’s urban adventures, the great outdoors, water experiences or getting up close and personal with wildlife.

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 an exciting and educational experience that the whole family can enjoy, why not start the Christmas holidays with a trip to Hamilton Zoo where you will find hours of fun exploring and meeting a wide variety of rare and endangered animals from around the world. 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.

Wet days are no longer a challenge with children with Hamilton providing a perfect solution of all-weather destinations. The SkyCity entertainment complex provides endless hours family entertainment all under one roof, with tenpin bowling, Megazone lazer tag and Timezone with cafes and restaurants to feed hungry stomachs.

Waikato Museum is also great for children of all ages as they will happily spend hours in total absorption in the Exscite interactive science gallery. The changing exhibitions bring the Waikato region’s stories to life, with a focus on the culture and engaging hands-on experiences. Waikato Museum makes learning a lot of fun.
