Tourism Opportunities Plan

The Hamilton and Waikato region is New Zealand’s fifth largest tourism region, with $1.3 billion in visitor expenditure. The Hamilton and Waikato Visitor Strategy 2014 aims to grow visitor expenditure in this region from $1 billion in 2014 to $1.35 billion in 2025. This goal requires clear strategies to identify the tourism opportunities that have the greatest potential to drive growth, yield and dispersal in the region.
