Who knew toilets could be so beautiful and amazing ?! I love how they have built these toilets . Hundterwasser was an amazing artist . Great to have something so well known represent him and his creativity .

Mosaic everywhere, these public toilets definately add interest to the usual toilet stop on road trips. Its not often you see people walking into public toilets aimed & ready to take photos. We found various other mosaic pieces around town. Worth a stop off.

You have to stop regularly when travelling with kids and these toilets certainly provide a novelty value for them. It was a pretty average weather day when we visited, but the kids were still impressed

Different and one of the kind. Visited two distinctive restrooms on the New Zealand Cruise Excursion, one each on each of the two islands.

Craziest toilets I have ever seen in my life. Can definitely see the passion and understand the work of art that the structure is. It was a bit weird to see people taking photos when others are trying to use the loo but if you...More

It's probably actually worth holding it in just to see send use these unique toilets made of ceramic tiles designed by Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser right on the main road in Kawakawa northern New Zealand, a short drive from Waitangi.

We didn't expect much, but my husband and I were left wowed with the Ladies & Gents loos! Hundertwasser definitely had the creative flare to make a public convenience a proper talking point! Crazy creativity and magically momentous childlike sculpture, bound to make anyone laugh...More
