This is an awesome sculpture for all ages and the kids love to climb over it. Young adults love to climb it to for the view and to take photos. Great spot

Thus sculpture is on the town basin walk. There are many interesting facts and sculptures to see on this walk which does a circuit around the town basin and over the bridge. So beautiful and relaxing.

The walk from the Town Basin to these sculptures was nice and relaxing! The sculptures themselves were amazing.

I like the inspiring idea of this scuplture, and the emphasis on the maori heritage, but the concrete parts ruin it and make it looks like debris mixed with art. Much better sculpures if you walk along the Hatea Loop

This is now a lovely walk around the town basin with many sculptures to see along the way. The Waka'n'Wave is such an interesting piece of sculpture which is a great hit with adults & children alike who love to climb on & in it.

This sculpture is part of the loop walk although you don't have to do the walk to see the sculpture. There is easy car access and a very short flat walk to view the sculpture in its own right.
