Mighty River Domain

Lake Karapiro is an idyllic setting for water sports and recreation, and plays host to some of New Zealand’s most impressive water sports events.

The Domain is a fantastic community asset, which is open to the public, and home to the facilities and space to support the wide range of events held at the lake.   

 

The home of water sports

The domain is home to Rowing New Zealand’s high performance centre, where the national elite rowing crews train year round. It's also home to the Karapiro Camping and Pursuits centre which facilitates various school and community group activities. Events held at Mighty River Domain include: 
 

Hydro Plane Racing

International hydro plane racing. 

Skiing

Ski and wakeboard competitions. 

Rowing

Aon Maadi Cup, Bankstream National Rowing Championships, New Zealand Masters Rowing Championships and North Island Club Championships. 


Our work with the Waipa District Council

We’ve been working with Waipa District Council since 2009 to enhance and improve the Domain, and the legacy of this on-going partnership is that the Domain carries our former name, Mighty River.
