Kihikihi is a outer and southern suburb of Te Awamutu, but sees itself as a fully independent  community from the big brother. Kihikihi is the Maori name for the insect called the cicada and a large statue of a Cicada is at the northern end of the town.

Kihikihi is also on the busy tourist route to the Waitomo Caves.

Kihikihi's multi-purpose sports domain boasted the unique honour of hosting New Zealand's sole qualifying event for the 2009 HSBC FEI World Cup.




Kihikihi has an historic well maintained Anglican Church, War Memorials and two very imposing Hotels.
