Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Northland Region / Kawakawa / Hundertwasser Public Toilets
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.

Quirky public toilets in the middle of town. Definitely worth a visit if you are passing through but apparently there are organised tours to take you! Ridiculous! We called in as part of the Twin Coas... more »
Having visited Hundertwasser's buildings in Vienna, we were not aware that he had spent the latter part of his life in NZ. The toilets are located in the heart of the main street of the town of Kawaka... more »
This alone is a very good reason to visit this friendly community. A loo as a lasting expression of Art and culture!
. (03/2017) Not just a usual toilet space and in fact before seeing this one, I never had thought that one day I'll be writing a review for a toilet. This place is well decorated with different kind of bottles as a tourist attraction with interesting history behind it and beautiful artistic work from an artist with the same name. Located in middle of roadside Kawakawa market area. Quite an elusive structure.
Always clean. Sometimes a queue. Very cool.
I learned about Friedensreich Hundertwasser at school in Germany, but just found out after visiting Kawakawa that he had a connection with New Zealand. Truly remarkable artist.
Always have to stop here. Always clean. Love the mosaics and wooden seats.
