The main tourist attraction in Kawakawa is the colourful public toilet designed by Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. First visiting New Zealand in the 1970s for an exhibition of his work, he decided to make the country his second home and bought property on the Waikare inlet, east of…
It is a fabulous artwork by world renowned architect and artist Frederisch Hundertwasser, who lived in Kawakawa for 25 years until his death. He gifted the artwork to the local council and renewed the toilets with his artwork and architecture. We are very proud of our 'loos'.
Strange as it might be to suggest 'sightseeing' in a public toilet but a visit to these toilets should not be missed. If you want to know why then you will just have to visit here.
Hunterwasser's last public artwork + only one in the Southern hemisphere, completed in 1999.

“49 Waiomio Road | Waiomio - about 10km south of Kawakawa. Stunning and close up. Probably the best way to see glow worms in New Zealand because you are not jostling with a large number of other tourists. Run by descendants of the chief, Kawiti. ”

“Sand Surfing on the Giant Te Paki Sand Dunes For those of us who are thrill seekers …. try Sand-surfing, its totally exhilarating, and very fast. You can hire sand boards on site. It is best to do this as these boards are specifically designed for sand, are easily controlled and can slide fast down the slopes.”
