Cambridge is a majestic tree-lined town that sits at the heart of New Zealand's rural heartland. Its proximity to many of the North Island's main towns and cities makes it the ideal location for visitors, businesses and the 18,400 residents who chose to call it home.
Come Home to Cambridge and be spoiled for choice for things to do. Cambridge is blessed with trees, parks and gardens that provide a stunning palette of colours as the seasons change. Cambridge also has two of the country's most beautiful waterways - the 'mighty' Waikato River and Lake Karapiro with swimming, rowing, kayaking, jet boating, skiing, cruising and fishing available to all within minutes of the town centre. Cambridge is also well-suited to those who enjoy a walk or like to get on a bike - either for a gentle ride or to compete against the world's best cyclists. And if horses are your thing, Cambridge is the Equine Capital of New Zealand. Some of the world's best racehorses have been bred here while many thoroughbred and standardbred trainers are based in the district.
