Matamata is a town in the Waikato Region of New Zealand's North Island. Get outdoors at Tuapiro Point and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Opoutere Surf Beach and Pauanui Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Matamata: Whangamata (Whangamata Beach & The Little Gallery Whangamata), Whiritoa Beach (in Whiritoa) and Anzac Bay (in Waihi Beach). There's lots more to do: trek along Wairere Falls Track, look for all kinds of wild species at Yarndley's Bush, admire the sheer force of Wairere Falls, and stroll through Katikati Bird Walk - Uretara Estuary & Yeoman Walkway.
