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'.

No visit to the North is complete without a visit to "The Birthplace of our Nation". A very informative and user friendly guide to the Treaty of Waitangi and a basic rundown on the history of Aotearoa. The museum has some really interesting and interactive displays, and of course you can visit the Treaty house, where the document of the basis of our country was signed. Visit the Whare where the Chiefs and British came together to discuss the treaty. There is a beautiful shop highlighting local artists and products. Beautiful pounamu (greenstone) available here.

Lots of local artists, some really beautiful artwork to reflect the community and made from NZ sourced materials. Really worth a look.

Sightseeing
Ever seen a steam engine travel down the middle of a major road? BOI Vintage rail is an iconic steam engine, maintained since the coal mining days of the north. "Gabriel" is a beautifully restored steam engine that goes for a seven kilometre ride through the countryside. Not to be missed, waving to motorists from the train as they wait patiently for you to pass

A very well stocked delicatessen that has local products and keeps prices low. Very careful to source local fresh produce and other products such as cheese, wine, fruit and vegetables. Very good coffee also. Very environmentally sustainable.

the Twin Coast Cycle way goes through Kawakawa to Opua. It is a very pleasant cycle or walk. Accessed just a couple of hundred metres away from my place.
