Durham Precinct is in close proximity to the Waikato River, the Waipā River and the Point reserve, as well as the renowned parliamentary house of the Kiingitanga, Tūrangawaewae House. The Precinct is easily accessible from Te Awa Cycleway along the Waikato River, as well as directly adjacent to both North and South bus stops and for commuters along Great South Road (ex State Highway 1) and on the main truck line for the developing commuter rail link. The Waikato River has been identified by Hamilton and Waikato Tourism as one of five key focus areas in their Tourism Opportunities Plan and will be branded over the next 10 years as the Mighty Waikato River.
Another feature in Ngāruawāhia is the Hākarimata ranges and its numerous enjoyable walkways. The Precinct is also on route to the most frequently used Hākarimata walkway (every Fitness Buff's favourite spot) on Brownlee Street. Close to 300,000 visitors  use this walkway annually, with many coming from Hamilton. The Precinct provides the ideal stopover space for visitors and locals alike to spend some time enjoying what Ngāruawāhia has to offer, great food, refreshments, entertainment and a spot of shopping (coming soon).
