About Our District

The South Waikato District lies at the heart of New Zealand's North Island with our country's main highway (SH1) running through three of our main towns - Tokoroa, Putāruru and Tīrau.

The South Waikato District Council has a main office in Tokoroa, a second office in Putāruru, and the iconic Tīrau i-SITE acts as an agent for Council.

Our district has a naturally beauty and an easy going lifestyle. Our stunning lakes, rolling green hills, beautiful forests and lack of a single traffic light provides residents with an idyllic lifestyle and perfect work-life balance.

Our people are come from all backgrounds and we pride ourselves on being open and welcoming to cultural differences and new ventures.

The South Waikato offers rural and urban living at reasonable costs, a wide range of schooling options, and affordable business opportunities in a district that is well connected, serviced and is just waiting for development.

There's so much to see and do in the South Waikato - so whether you're here to stay or just in for a quick visit, make sure you get out there and enjoy all that our district has to offer.
