Morrinsville

Morrinsville is a city in the Waikato region of New Zealand's North Island. It is located about 33 km east of Hamilton and 22 km west of Te Aroha near the shore of the Piako River. It had 6,165 inhabitants in the 2001 census, an increase of 4.5\% since 1996. Morrinsville is one of three settlement centers in New Zealand's main dairy region. The area around the city is sometimes referred to as one of the most intensively agricultural areas in the world. From this, the slogan "cream of the country" was developed. The city is named after Samuel and Thomas Morrin. These were early settlers who had bought the land and founded the city to house their farm workers. In Morrinsville is the connection of the Waitoa Industrial Line to the East Coast Main Trunk Line. This railway line runs through the city, but today there are no commuter trains that stop in the city.
