Welcome to the Waterworks!

Check out New Zealands quirkiest theme park: Located in Coromandel Town, The Waterworks is the ultimate kiwi experience for people of all ages.

There is something like 1,260,000,000,000,000,000,000 litres of water on earth and we've taken our portion of it and turned it into liquid fun! Water is used to keep time on the wooden water clock; watch out though it often works on Coromandel time. We've got water cannons to blast away on and bikes that pump H2O. Our human sized hamster wheel is an absolute hoot and our mad inventions leave people wondering "what the".

As well as the array of water powered inventions to look at, play on, or interact with, The Waterworks has a generous childrens playground area perfect for picnics, an onsite café, free use of BBQs and a swimming hole to cool off in during the hot summer months.
The Waterworks is inspired by the ability to create something new out of something old, over 70% of our attractions are made from recycled materials and are powered by water.

The Waterworks is just 7km from Coromandel Town on the 309 Road.

Come along and see for yourself what a bit of “kiwi ingenuity” can do!
