The Waterworks: wet and wonderful


View the map

TAP FOR MORE INFO:

A whole lot of Kiwi ‘number 8 wire’ thinking has gone into creating The Waterworks in Coromandel. 

10 minutes from Coromandel Town on the inland 309 Road, The Waterworks is a testament to tinkering and backyard inventions, making it the quirkiest, most eco-friendly theme park you’re likely to come across.

Discover an array of water-themed attractions, from duelling water cannons to boat races; a water-fuelled clock and music box, pedal-powered hoses and plenty of other opportunities to get wet.

Kids will love the extensive playground where they can soar on the flying fox or the innovative flying bikes. Stay for a picnic in the gardens on a summer afternoon and bring your togs to do some bombs into the onsite swimming hole in the Waiau River.
