Huntly is known for many things; one of New Zealands largest power stations, it's rich mining history, it's beautiful lakes and scenic walks, and the last remaining D*E*K*A sign.
Situated on both sides of the Waikato River, approximately 93 km south of Auckland and 32 km north of Hamilton, the town is linked by the Tainui and Rail bridges.
There is lots to do in Huntly, if you're spoiled for time, Huntly offers scenic walks that range in length, each one providing unique views of the town.
If you are a speed junky Huntly is the home of the Huntly Speedway, with Hampton Downs race track and the Meremere dragstrip further north.
For the people with a sweet tooth and love a good coffee you can take your pick from any of the cafes and bakery's down Main Street.
