Playful and engaging learning experience for both students and teachers

The Waterworks was built by local creative souls and made for the inventive minds and the young at heart. Through the years, we became famous for being part of the childhood memories of so many kiwi kids across New Zealand, but what people do not know is that here we can also bring all those joyful moments back to anyone at any age.

Join us for a day (or two, or three, or just come and move to Coromandel) and get surprised with what we can offer you besides hours of laughter.

“This is an awesome place for a group of children to visit. The whole school had a fantastic time. There was plenty of room for everyone to be seated to have lunch then to experiment and play with all the hands on activities. All the attractions were amazing, the childern had a fantastic time.”

The Waterworks is a sustainable and eco-friendly theme park

Committed to lead by example, 70% of all materials used in the construction of our attractions have been upcycled. No electricity is used throughout the park’s gardens and 100% the water is re-sourced and gravity fed from the creek on-site.

Past school groups have included The Waterworks as part of their science and technology units and even have designed their own eco-friendly playground.



Solar Power Generation

Using Renewable Resources

Our goal is to Inspire our children to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle by...

Explaining Why

To create an aware society and a healthier future for the planet, efforts to recycle, consciously consume, and have a sustainable mindset need to be an integral part of our life from a young age.

Showing How

To reuse and save materials, we must be highly creative. Sometimes a quirky idea can get bigger and bigger and become a business like ours. Planning, adapting, and testing is the way we do over here.

Encouraging them to go home and do it

Once they know it’s possible; it’s easier to follow this at home. Anything can be reused; we all need to think outside the box sometimes. This is a great palce for inspiration!

Look no further!! Come and spend a unique day at The Waterworks and join us to learning and working for a sustainable and happy future for ALL!!!
