Yet Hamilton, Rotorua and Tauranga are less than an hour’s drive away, so you can still work in one of the main centres and afford a family home.
The town has five schools catering for New Entrants through to Year 15. Toi Ohomai (the country’s largest tertiary provider) is just a 25 minute drive to Tokoroa, or your son or daughter can catch a free bus to the Waikato University campus in Hamilton.
The dairy and timber industries are thriving and bring with them lots of local employment opportunities. Fonterra’s Lichfield plant, for example, is the largest milk drier and cheese manufacturer in Australasia.
