The Hakarimata range is visible in the background, with the Waikato River passing through Ngaruawahia in the foreground.

Hakarimata Range is a range of hills on the western edge of Ngaruawahia township[1] in the Waikato region of New Zealand, lying along the Waikato River and Waipa River. The Hakarimata Range is separated from the Taupiri Range by the Taupiri Gorge, through which the Waikato River flows.

Parts of the range is protected as a scenic reserve. A community group the Hakarimata Restoration Trust created in 2001 is helping care for the range. There are several walkways through the range, allowing excellent views of the Waikato Plains below.
