Decided to spend a few days in Port Waikato chilling out. Consider a detour to Pukekohe to check out the “city smart, country heart” atmosphere of the Saturday market.


Commercial growers offload export surplus making this the place for fresh veg and fruit. The thriving country town supports urban style cafes and restaurants with an extensive range of fresh produce at the Saturday morning market. The golf courses are considered outstanding attracting visitors year round. For vintage rail fans check Glenbrook railway for their weekend steam train journeys.
