Good parking and a great food court to bring the grandchildren to, however it felt cold inside.

Good place for shopping if u have time to spare. Macpac & Kathmanthu are my favourite. Plenty of parking space here and good to hunt for what you are after.

It is shopping mall area
Mar 2019 • Couples
It is the most prominent shopping centre or mall and the only one in Hamilton in term of the large size. Nearly any big famous names are available here. The main mall is named Te Awa, with plenty of small shopping inside, while the big names in NZ are opened in separate buildings, including reataurants and cafes. Plenty of car parkings with open air children playgrond in the mid of car park. Location is in the north side of city centre, in Te Rapa area and the first shopping place in you coming from Auckland. Not only for general shopping mechandise but also a big shop of hardware and building stuff is available here, a handy and convenience shopping place for all.

One stop shop
Jan 2019 • Family
Plenty of shops and food places at the base. The playground in the middle is gated and awesome for kids. It breaks up the day of shopping for them. Parking is free and there's plenty of it. I especially like the amount of toilets and parent rooms here. It makes going out with babies and children learning toileting much more pleasant.

Day trip drop in
Jan 2019 • Couples
A quick visit for my wife to undertake some 'retail therapy' after a day trip to Raglan from Auckland.
All the major retail stores are here )and most are large so have a good selection/stock range), cinemas and a reasonable range of food outlets. Parking under cover was easy.
A large playground in the complex to entertain young kids as well

Great shopping experience
Dec 2018 • Family
The Base with Te Awa mall is the best shopping location in Hamilton as all the shops are within easy reach with a free shuttle for those who wish to take a drive between shops. The management team make this shopping experience memorable every time...now over the Festive season they have anactivity centre where kids can meet Santa and get a present and there is a gift of giving centre where you have your photo taken and then get a sweet treat. There is ample free parking including undercover parking.

Large, local shopping center in Hamilton
Nov 2017 • Couples
Feel like a Kiwi when you visit this local shopping center in Hamilton. My daughter lives nearby and we always make several visits here to shop, eat and do her errands when I visit. It's a fun experience to see how the locals live vs just going to the tourist areas. This is a large outdoor center with a play area in the middle, a huge variety of shops (in case you forget something!), and numerous eateries. Get a taste of true New Zealand life and stop by here!
