Hundertwasser Public Toilets, Kawakawa

(4.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Indisputably one of New Zealand's most unusual attractions, Hundertwasser Public Toilets represent an international work of art. Designed by reclusive Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, this block of public restrooms features trademark wavy lines, irregular ceramic tiles, and splashes of bright color. The architect made extensive use of recycled materials, including the community's spent glass bottles and bricks from a former Bank of New Zealand branch.

  • Worth driving through the main street of Kawa Kawa to see, etc. even on the dreariest of days. See the photos.  more »
  • We were just passing through. But that we have do not miss us. Typical dog water, but really good. A stop is worthwhile in any case. And there are more traces of the great artist.

  • What more can one say? You don't just go to the toilet, you need to stop and take photos. Then you realise the ceramic idea has kept up throughout the town. A must see  more »

  • OMG - a review of a public toilet...and it is a definite 5. Crazy beautiful weird. Worth stopping even if you don't need to.
  • Stunning piece of art.. A great place for a pit stop on the drive up to paihia and watch the tram go past the town
  • Quirky and unique place for a free toilet stop on your way up North :)
  • Hundertwasser is a genius of architecture and I enjoy his style anywhere in the world.
