Putaruru

Much of New Zealand's bottled water comes from the Blue Springs in Putaruru. You can stroll to the springs along the riverside Te Waihou Walkway.

Mid-way between Tokoroa and Tirau, the rural town of Putaruru is close to Lake Arapuni on the Waikato River. The area has a history of Farmingg and timber growing.

From a recreational point of view, it’s a fisherman’s paradise. Within a 20 kilometre radius of the town, there are 20 rivers stocked with rainbow and brown trout.

If you have time, wander along the Te Waihou Walkway to find the Blue Springs. Water is bottled here and sold throughout the country.

Putuaruru has a timber museum and a decorative waterpark, which is adorned with mosaics and native plants. It is also home to the New Zealand Cheese School and Over the Moon Cheese factory.

Cyclists on the Waikato River Trails will find this a good place to stop and refresh.
