There are several cities and areas in New Zealand that have experienced unexpected growth and population boom in recent years, which has naturally led these areas to a rise in housing and real estate properties. One such area now is Te Kauwhata, a small town of expansive dairy farmlands situated in the north of the Waikato region. It’s the same region that houses New Zealand’s small wine-producing lands, making Te Kauwhata, or TK as the locals call it, seem like a quaint prestigious village that exemplifies country living at its finest. And that might just be the exact reason why it’s so popular these days.

If you’re residing in the cities of Auckland and Hamilton, and thinking about a move to the fresh country air of Te Kauwhata, you can also consider keeping your job in the city and commuting back and forth. Since Te Kauwhata is found in between the two cities and with the enhanced Waikato expressway, commuting has become easier and less time-consuming. If you take State Highway 1, with Auckland being 77 km away and Hamilton 52 km away, travel time is a little under an hour. There are also available jobs in closer towns such as Huntly, with major industries in coal and gas power through the Huntly Power Station, which is New Zealand’s largest thermal power station. Huntly is around 20 minutes away from Te Kauwhata.

As for Te Kauwhata itself, it’s home to rolling dairy farm lands and vineyards, so there are possible prospects in the light industrial, commercial and horticultural areas. With its growing population and economy, there can be available jobs in the agricultural supply businesses, truck and freight companies, light engineering companies and dry stock and dairy farms. There are also opportunities to explore in school such as Te Kauwhata College. In any case, if beautiful country living is what you need right now, making it happen in Te Kauwhata is very much a big possibility.
