    Fonterra milk truck

    Favorite thing: Hamilton is the capital of the Waikato Region. The Waikato is New Zealand's biggest dairy area. Cows galore! The main dairy processing company is called Fonterra which is actually the world's 7th largest dairy company. The Fonterra milk trucks can be seen all over Waikato roads.

    Greek Arcade 2

    by Kate-Me Updated Apr 25, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: And when I walked further into the Arcade, lined with shops and boutiques on both sides, and the centrepiece the Greek Taverna at the end, it was even more delightful.
    I felt a little like I'd stepped into a different European world.

    Greek Arcade

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: During our short stop in Hamilton, I was walking along a street (Barton St, just off the main street) when I happened upon this adorable arcade, Casabella.

    I just fell in love with the quaintness of it.

    City Bridges

    Fairfield Bridge

    Favorite thing: The city has the mighty Waikato River, which means it must have bridges. There are several within the inner city, and it's nice to take a drive over them.

    Fondest memory: My favourite bridge is the Fairfield Bridge at the North end of town. Here it is at night, attractively lit up. Believe it or not there are motorcycle tyre marks over the top of the bridge arches, can you believe some daredevil has done that????
    Better not have been my son!!!!

    Bollards

    by Kate-Me Written Apr 25, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: These carved Maori motif Bollards I found by the river front really appealed to me.
    (I found them in front of a multi storey extremely upmarket hotel in the main street)
