Matamata Piako District
The Matamata-Piako district has something for everyone . There’s all the benefits of living in a small town, such as safe communities, free parking and no traffic lights, but it’s close enough to Hamilton and Tauranga to enjoy the city life. The district is just over 30 minutes to the beach, only 90 minutes to Auckland and a few hours from the ski fields.
