Things To Do

Cambridge is a picturesque, welcoming town, with wide streets, beautiful heritage trees and green spaces.

Whether you are into adventures, relaxation or rural experiences, we have you covered.

We’re also well known for our boutique shopping and award-winning eateries – you will have plenty of options of things to do with family and friends during your stay.
Here are our top recommendations:

Sanctuary Mountain

The biggest inland predator free enclosure in the world. Over 47kms of predator free fencing protects this mountain, allowing native birdlife, flora and fauna to flourish.

Te Awa
River Ride

Te Awa walk and cycleway stretches along the Waikato River, from Ngaruawahia in the north to Karapiro in the south.

Glow Worm
Kayak Tours

Learn about the history of our area, before you kayak up a canyon, then drift back down as night falls and view the sparkling gloworms; finish your trip under the stars before you head back to base.


Choose from a thrills and spills adventure or a more relaxing ecological tour when you head out with Camjet.

Swimming Pool

This new facility will help to keep you cool on your stay – featuring a 50m outdoor and 25m indoor pool, spa, sauna, toddler and hydrotherapy pools.


Where world class cyclists train. Free entry, but book for a “have a go” session so you can experience it for yourself. Outside you will find a kids pump track and play area and access to Te Awa River Ride.


Alpacas, Llamas, Blacknose Sheep, Bison, Goats, Horses, Donkeys, dairy farms and more – we have it all!


In the heart of the Mighty Waikato region, you can explore the lush pastures of the Shire™ with a guided walking tour of Hobbiton™, as featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies.
