Morrinsville is a town in the Waikato region of New Zealand's North Island. It is situated around 33 kilometres northeast of Hamilton and 22 kilometres southwest of Te Aroha, close to the banks of the Piako River. It has a population of 6000.
Morrinsville serves as the centre of a fairly prosperous dairy farming industry, and the region around the town is sometimes described as among the most intensively farmed areas in the world. The town is named after Samuel and Thomas Morrin, early settlers who owned the land that the town is built on.
