Come Home to Cambridge when you're looking for a special gift or something for the home; chances are you'll find it among the array of specialist shops.
Cambridge's main thoroughfare, Victoria Street, is home to a wide range of boutique shops and cafes, and you'll find more in side streets like Duke St, Alpha St, Queen St, Empire St and Commerce St. There's ample parking - and not a parking meter in sight - with two free car parks just an easy stroll away.
Cambridge also has a full range of service providers from agriculture, to horticulture, to IT, to professionals, to trades, to property, to viticulture and many more – refer to our Business Directory for a full list.
Fertile soils, adequate rainfall and a temperate climate have long been the keys to Cambridge's prosperity as a town. Nature's gifts to Cambridge have enabled it to become a town that thrives on agriculture, in particular the dairy industry which is responsible for more than a tenth of local jobs. The equine industry also plays a major part in the Cambridge economy, with the Waikato employing more than half of the industry's national workforce and exporting more than $150 million of bloodstock a year, many of them born and raised in paddocks on the outskirts of the town.
