With some terrific road trip options available in the surrounding area, renting a car makes good sense. Without one, it wouldn’t be half as easy to explore all that Cambridge, 16 miles away, has to offer. Cambridge Raceway ought to be toward the top of your list here. Cambridge Farmers’ Market and Cambridge Museum are fantastic attractions too. Te Awamutu is another great option. It’s 25 miles away and home to an array of interesting things to see and do. Alphra Lavenders, Te Awamutu Museum and St Paul’s Church are only the start.
