Auckland’s Most Visited Thermal Water Destination

Waiwera Thermal Resort, attracts over 350,000 visitors each year. We are located only 35 minutes north of Auckland, on the picturesque Hibiscus Coast. Our natural thermal pools are sheltered by the native bush and hills of the Waiwera valley. The perfect place to unwind and relax in our naturally hot thermal pools or try out our hydroslides! Take time viewing our website for all the facilities we offer and upcoming events.

                    Waiwera Thermal Mineral Pools

All pools and spas contain only natural geothermal water. We do not reheat any water - we are indeed “100% naturally hot”. With the exception of rainfall, each pool contains nothing but geothermal water.


Waiwera has a variety of indoor and outdoor pools with varying temperatures and depths. Most notably we have a Movie pool and hydroslides. Our height limit for the slides is 1.2m tall.

Due to wear and deterioration of the welds in the stainless steel tube and in interest of public safety, the Blackhole slide has been closed.

We are sad to have to close this slide, but the safety of our customers made this an easy decision.
