BBQ Sites & Swimming Hole

Relax and unwind with a Kiwi BBQ 

Scattered around The Waterworks grounds are picnic sites and BBQ’s. We are happy for you to bring your own picnic lunch and you can even pack your own sausages and steak as we provide FREE gas BBQ’s for you to cook your own. 


Don’t forget your swimming gear! 

Cool down with a dip in the Waiau River. The inviting crystal clear water is perfect for swimming during the hot summer months when temperatures can reach up to 35 degrees Celsius. Walk the plank and do some choice bombs off our diving board.

Thank you very much Water wunderful place (hee hee). Very innovative and enterprising, a real joy will be back again in the summer with the kids. It's a really wonderful place to forget your age, I've turned 41 today but felt like a 14 yr old. Lisa Beales..
