Te Awamutu, New Zealand is all about flowers and fun. Roses, in particular, become the centre of attraction when they bloom in large fields from November to April. Thousands of bushes turn into their brightest colours during these months for everyone to see. Its name translates to ‘the end of the river’, referencing its proximity to the Waipa River. Aside from the roses and the river, Te Awamutu does not run short of places of interest for tourists like you. There is the Te Awamutu Museum where exhibits allow you to connect with history and culture. If nature is your thing, you can go to Lake Ngaroto and hike around its trails while taking in some of the most beautiful flora and fauna you will ever see. Aside from these, the town has a lot more to offer for every kind of tourist that steps on it. If you are planning to see what this town has to offer for a few days, read through our list of top ten Airbnb vacation rentals in Te Awamutu, New Zealand below and choose the one that best suits your travel needs.
