Tikokino is a village in the Central Hawke's Bay District on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand. It is located 20 kilometres (12 mi) northwest of Waipawa and 55 kilometres (34 mi) southwest of Hastings. The township is located on State Highway 50.[1]

The township was founded by the Government in 1860. Hampdon, as it was originally called, began as sawmilling centre for local forests, becoming a service town for the farms which took their place. By the early 2000s, most residents were working at a nearby meat processing plant, dairy farming, or for local growers.[1]

Tikokino has eight buildings registered by Heritage New Zealand, including the Gwavas Station Homestead and Garden as Category I.[2]
