Keeping the kids entertained throughout the holidays can be a challenge, for any parent! OneHaus Hamilton home builders sure knows and understands this dilemma. With a break in the rain comes the opportunity to get out and about around Hamilton. There’s a host of things to do, and it’s usually just a case of having some great ideas and plans at your fingertips.
Here’s a comprehensive list of a few things that will surely help to keep your kids entertained between now and the end of the school holidays.
Gourmet in The Gardens
Sundays 4-8pm at Hamilton Gardens. Enter via Gate 2 for easiest access. Bring a rug and the kids and settle into some gourmet feasting until 8pm. There’s a load of food stalls and options and even live music. And there’s room for the kids to run around.

Waikato River Trails
Who doesn’t love the river, and who doesn’t love a good bike ride. The Waikato River Trails have been upgraded over the past few years. There’s so many different parts of the trail to choose from, for a family ride. The full trail takes 2-4 days biking, or do a shorter day ride and enjoy the scenery before heading home.
This is a great outing for the family and a short drive from Hamilton. Take a picnic lunch and sit by one of the many ponds. Marvel at this wonderful arboretum, gifted to the people of Hamilton by locals John and Bunny Mortimer. Remember that Taitua Arboretum is pooch friendly, so long as you keep your dog on a lead.
Follow State Highway 23 west towards Raglan, turn left into Howden Road, then left again into Taitua Road. The park is open 7 days from 8am onwards.
Waikato Farmers’ Market
This is a great place to shop for fresh produce. Tired of dragging the ankle-biters around the supermarket in the crazy holiday season? Turn your shopping into a fun family event, score some great local fruit and vegetable and gourmet delights in the process, or sit outside in the sunshine and listen to the weekly guest performer under the trees. Fun and free!
Claudelands Events Centre, Gate 4, Brooklyn Road, Claudelands Hamilton.
Raglan Day Out
It’s hot and it’s summer and what better way to cool off than a day trip to the beach. We’re a stone’s throw drive from the wild and beautiful west coast. Why not pack up the umbrella and the esky and make your way out to Raglan for a beach day. Raglan’s beach is well serviced with lifeguards during holidays, so get on down there with your beach ball, towels and sunscreen.
Keep an eye out for our regular things to do updates, and enjoy your day. Thanks from the team at OneHaus. https://www.onehaus.co.nz Call 021838971
