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.

  • I knew of these and had no desire to come look at them. I mean, what a load of hype. That said, I found myself walking past and realised I needed to go to the toilet. Oh well, let's see what the hype is about I thought. Well it's a cool place. Wouldn't come to see it but if you're there have a look. It's a remarkable piece of functional art.
