Still extremely visually stunning, this interesting practical toilet-stop is unexpectedly in the middle of a small Northland town (because the highly acclaimed international artist lived in that area at the end of his life). Ihave been there before many times, but sadly of late it...More

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 Coast cycle ride we did.

Not to be missed stop right in the middle of town. Stop the tree growing in between the gents and ladies with the leaves shading the roof. Great little surprises inside. Check out the bottle wall. Across the road an excellent coffee shop.

If you have time its worth a swing by this town to see its unique art style not only in the form of these bathrooms but on the shops fronts and alleys too! Certainly one way to put yourself on the map!

After reading about them and seeing them on the TV screen for many years, being able to visit and use the Hundertwasser-designed conveniences was even better in real life. Apart from their smaller than expected street frontage, the facilities were exceptionally clean, no odours you...More

While this isn’t a public attraction that will take a long time to look at, it is well worth a visit because the Hundertwasser toilets are so unusual. These are an item of public art with a practical purpose too. Once viewed and photographed, the...More
