In partnership with Iwi, Council have confirmed we will build a Waipā Discovery Centre. Located in Te Awamutu, this will be a space where our community and visitors can discover Waipā’s diverse and largely unknown social, cultural and natural history.
We will be building a Waipā Discovery Centre in Te Awamutu which will replace the current museum on Roche Street.
The Waipā Discovery Centre will include:
Construction will begin in 2020/21.
Discussions around the operating model for the Centre will take place with Iwi and are still to be confirmed.
Te Awamutu is considered the most appropriate location due to the large number of taonga which belong in this area of the district.
