Weather Warning for Waitomo
Waitomo District is expecting a significant amount of rainfall over the next few days. Once again, this will likely have a major impact on our roads and farmland. We ask residents to please take caution and do not venture out into the weather if you do not need to. And if possible, move stock to higher ground.
Surface flooding and excess water may also slow the drainage of the stormwater and wastewater network. We are not expecting any significant impact to the network, water will just take a little longer to drain.
We will keep you updated as information comes to hand.
Stay safe.

The new site aims to support local businesses and organisations, whilst promoting Piopio as a destination.

Web co-ordinators, Jenny Brodie and Donna Pari have taken a keen interest in marketing Piopio as


A key feature is the community events calendar. The online calendar will feature local events and fundraisers and the pair hope for all groups to use the site to both promote and to help plan functions.

Other sections will feature the community’s history, employment opportunities, community news and local clubs and organisation contacts, including a vast selection of quiet native bush walks, to the more adventurous mountain bike rides or Lama trekking.

An abundance of accommodation choices are available throughout the district to suit the needs of all visitors, Camping, Farm Stays, Motel or Bed and Breakfast.
