- You must visit the caves at Waitomo. You can black water raft, do the whole caving experience complete with abseiling, or just lie back and enjoy looking at the millions of sparkling glow worms as you drift slowly down stream accompanied by your guide.
- Heading to Raglan? Why not detour and visit Waireinga/Bridal Veil Falls - a stunning waterfall along the Pakoka River. It's an easy 20 minute walk and there are two viewing platforms, though the second is not wheelchair.
- Did you know that Richard O'Brien, the man who write The Rocky Horror Picture Show and starred as Riff Raff in the film version, was born in Hamiltron? Visit the statue and get a great picture!
- Cambridge is a gorgeous town full of cafes and boutiques, just 25 km from Hamilton. It's famous for it's connections to the horse studs near by, as well as rowing at Lake Karapiro.
