Hāwera Water Tower
The Hāwera Water Tower dominates the urban landscape and provides a central landmark and navigation point for visitors to the town. It is designated as a category one structure by the Historic Places Trust, and celebrated its 100th year in 2014.
Situated behind the South Taranaki i-SITE Visitor Centre, take about 10 minutes to climb the (somewhat strenuous - but don't let that put you off) 215 steps of the best known heritage building in Hāwera for a bird’s eye view of the region and coast.
The tower is open to climb daily (with the exception of Christmas Day) between 8.30am - 4.30pm on weekdays and 10am - 2.30pm on weekends and public holidays. Gain entry by heading into the South Taranaki i-SITE Visitor Centre which is located right beside the water tower, on High Street.
Entry Fee - Adults $2.50, Children $1.00, Family $6.00.
