A cool little place inspired by Hundertwasser that is just one of the many treasures scattered across the Hatea Loop

Great preview

Great to see this Hunterwaser building preview right next to the new building. Exciting to see the new building underway.

Beautiful scenery out to the water, laid back vibe at the weekend markets
Oct 2018 • Couples
Great spacious design. When we arrived, we stumbled upon the weekend markets. We were surprised to see that all stalls had 100% hand-crafted wares and products. Many weekend markets throughout New Zealand (these-days) contain lacklustre stalls, cheap plastic imports, etc. It was nice to see Whangarei's artisans out together on such a beautiful sunny day.

A preview of what is to come

This interesting building is a preview of the new Hundertwasser Centre under construction nearby. If you are in the area, it is worth a quick look.

A fitting little teasing taster for what is to come later for the Hunter Wasser Centre. Very unique.

Not for me
Apr 2018 • Family
I understand that it is made by a local artist and that it's a nice looking attraction. It's nice to see when you have done the walk but when all is said and done I honestly don't believe it's worth actually going out of your way to see. Now I know art is really only as good as you perceive it to be but in my eyes I just don't understand it.

It's well made and fun to look at for a minute but not worth the time in the grand scheme of things. I'm glad it had somewhere to sit and I'll give it credit where credit is due but sadly it will definately not be for everyone.

Absolutely outstanding
Feb 2018 • Solo
Its safe to say that as of this date this is the best thing that could have happened to the Whangarei waterfront. I have heard there are more things coming up in the future but as of this point in time - this is outstanding and makes Whangarei look so much better. I have never heard a bad thing about this and i ask everyone i see. I walk the loop 2-3 times a week and this is by far the easiest talking point when it comes to making conversation.
Simply cannot wait for the full thing to be built and/or designed.

Fabulous!

What a unique piece of architecture and it fits perfectly in the town basin area of Whangarei City. I'm now looking forward to the Hundertwasser Art Museum's construction, which is going to be in the same unique style, nearby.

Went for a small walk after lunch to have another look around this art work. It does have some funky features.
