Beautiful building, unfortunately it has been earthquake damaged, worth a visit just to look at. I hope they restore it so it can be accessed again.

“Water tower”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Interesting Victorian building but very disappointed that I couldn't see inside, appreciate the earthquake risk but surely you could get people to sign to say they viewed it at their own risk. Don't get like UK which is buarocracy gone mad!

Climbing the narrow stairway and then stepping out onto a wire walkway, makes the tummy tingle!! There was no cost when we visited.

It is a good place to use as a point of direction. Quite impressive when driving up the street toward it

“Massive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

The old Invercargill Water Tower is a heritage listed building, within walking distance from the centre of town. The lovely old tower is pretty cool, and it is worth a walk around the building to fully appreciate. Combine with a walk along the lovely Otakaro Park.
