 Tour of Waikato, Stage 2 (Te Kuiti)   

Te Kuiti is a town in the North Island of New Zealand. The town promotes itself as the sheep shearing capital of the world and is host to the annual New Zealand National Shearing Championships. The "Shearing Capital of the World" contains the world’s largest shearer, seven metres high. On 1 April 2006 the largest sheep show in the world took place here, with more than 2000 sheep. Limestone deposits and water have created the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, northwest of the town, one of New Zealand’s most-visited tourist locations. The town itself is located in a valley with many rich limestone deposits. Te Kuiti’s hinterland consists mainly of farmland and limestone quarries. The land surrounding Te Kuiti has steep hilly relief which reflects the nature of the North King Country region.
