The Waipa District lies in the heart of New Zealand's Waikato region and houses a resident population of around 46,000. The district stretches over 1447 square kilometres with a strong agricultural community as well as a rich cultural and historical heritage. The main urban populations reside in the towns of Te Awamutu, Cambridge, Kihikihi, Pirongia and Ohaupo.

Through our organisational goals we aim to be:
• Connected with our community

Waipa is a great place to live, work and play.
