Welcome to Huntly
Huntly is home to the Topp Twins, Rugby union player/coach Tawera Nikau and Olympic equestrian medal winner Vaughn Jefferis!
Located between Auckland and Hamilton, Huntly is known as the coal town as it's set on a large coal-fired power station. Once a major source of coal, Huntly was known for producing around 10,000 tonnes of coal a day.
Huntly has several great walking trails, including Lake Hakanoa, which is an easy forty-five-minute loop walk surrounded by picturesque lake views. Huntly is also home to the Glen Afton Line – a volunteer-run heritage railway allowing the public to ride steam or diesel trains. With the Mercer Art and History Museum showcasing the history of the Waikato River and the river trade, Huntly is an interesting rural town with endless opportunities.
The Huntly railway station was re-opened in 2021 and ran a daily return commuter train from Hamilton to Auckland. The Waikato River flows through Huntly, and the riverbank is also the site of a massive coal/natural gas-fired power station. In the 1860s, locally sourced coal was used for the riverboats using the Waikato River.
There are farm stays in the area plus numerous great walking trails, including Lake Hakanoa, an easy 45-minute loop walk taking in picturesque community-made gardens including lake surrounds. Car racing fans are also very well looked after, with the Huntly Speedway hosting regular events.
There is a local branch of Pony Club as well as other community-run sporting, cultural and hobby clubs. There's something for everyone!
