Known originally as Kirikiriroa, when the region was first inhabited by the Maori, Hamilton is one of New Zealand's richest agricultural regions. Located in North Island, Hamilton is just an hour's drive south of Auckland. The city encompasses the bewitching Waikato River - or 'flowing river' in Maori, which played host to several dramatic skirmishes between the Waikato tribes and the British during the years 1863-1865. The city was named after Captain Fane Hamilton who was a popular figure and commander of HMS Esk. For a peek into history, check out the Waikato Museum which is a spectacular five level building that showcases the rich cultural heritage of this region.
