Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Northland Region / Kawakawa / Kawakawa Public Toilets by Hundertwasser
Indisputably one of New Zealand's most unusual attractions, Kawakawa Public Toilets by Hundertwasser 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.

This is his legacy to the city, where he spent the last years of his life, among other objects in Kawakawa. Unfortunately, the way there is relatively poorly signposted and we promptly passed it at the first attempt. The toilet facility itself is beautifully made but this was very dirty. This was by far the most unclean public toilet we have encountered in 4 weeks of New Zealand tour, a pity.......
When ever I go up north, I stop here and use the toilet as I love the style. I called in last week and sadly the toilet, and in general the immediate area needs a good clean up. As a tourist stop, I w... more »
I'm totally inspired by these amazing toilets. Who would have thought a town could become an attraction because of its toilets? These toilets look like they were made on a budget from excess tiles. I love the glass bottles set into the walls. They not only provide light but are an attractive feature too. The funky iron gates lock these toilets at night. There's signage to read about how the toilets came to be. This man's work is an inspiration to everyone who wants to use their imagination & skills to do something for their community. The same theme has spilled over into a few shops in the town too.
Excellent tourist attraction in Kawakawa. Hide all valuables and lock your vehicle before venturing out. Floor surface is heavily cobbled and potentially a trip hazard for elderly. Regrettably to odour of these facilities is not pleasant and may cause offence. Council should consider this issue. Located centrally in the town, cafes and hotels close by and souvenir shops etc. Old historic train runs through the middle of town at regular intervals.
