Glampers can spend a day touring the set and pausing for a refreshing drink in the Green Dragon. The Matamata Heritage Trail is a great way to explore the town of Matamata itself. The trail roams through the town’s parks, gardens, and historical sights. Glampers should also make sure to visit Wairere Waterfall, the highest waterfall in New Zealand’s North Island, which offers amazing views of the Waikato region. The hike to the lookout is only 45 minutes and if glampers would like to reach the summit, it is a further 45 minutes. On return from the hike, glampers should visit the Opal Hot Springs, where they can bathe in two outdoor mineral pools to relax aching muscles.
