Sera in New Zealand: Kawakawa


Approximately at 20 minute drive from Kerikeri, visit the Glow Worm caves which are a further 5 kms. Yhen come back to Kerikeri via Paihia.

Kawakawa is a small town in the Northland Region of northern New Zealand.

The town is known as « Train town », because the Bay of Islands Vintage Railway runs down the middle of its main street on the way to Opua.

Kawakawa remains unique in having the railway running through its main street but the most known attraction in the city is the Hundertwasser toilets with its ceramic columns, garden roof and curving. Their colourful exuberance has put the Northland town of Kawakawa on the international tourist route. Designed and built by the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, internationally regarded architect and ecologist who, delighted by invitation, emerged from its reclusive lifestyle nearby from until 1975, to oversee the project. The Kawakawa toilets were Hundertwasser’s final creation and are seen as an important memorial to him after his death in 2000.
