Welcome to the 'Town of Trees'
Located in the North Island, Cambridge sits on the banks of the Waikato River and is styled like a classic English town. It's known as the town of trees, and champions, for its tranquil oak-lined main street, and its position surrounded by lush countryside, the breeding ground for horse racing champions. It also is home to many rowing champions, as nearby Lake Karapiro is often the venue for world-class water based events. Not sure what to do? Check out our selection below...
