Down to earth is a good way to describe the timber town of Tokoroa. No pretensions here; just honest kiwi hospitality and lumberjack-sized meals.
Tokoroa is a timber town – the heart of New Zealand’s massive forestry, timber and paper industries. It sits between the lush farmland of the Waikato and the vast plantation pine forests of the central North Island. Visitors can follow the ‘talking poles’ trail through the town centre to learn about Tokoroa’s history and people.
Pastimes in this area are decidedly rustic. Hunting is very popular and permits can be obtained to shoot deer, possums, rabbits, pigs, goats and other introduced species. The many gravel and dirt forest roads around Tokoroa attract motor rally and mountain biking events.
Functional facts: Approx. population 14,430, information centre, wide range of shops, eating places and accommodation.
