An interactive kiosk with information about activities and the history of the Mahurangi is up and running on Warkworth’s waterfront.

The kiosk features a vandalism-proof touch-screen which allows people to navigate between two short videos with information about the area and its history.

The project has been led by the Warkworth Riverbank Enhancement Group. Group member Dave Parker says the kiosk will also house a range of maritime relics.

The structure was built about two years ago with donations from Warkworth Lions, Rotary and the Warkworth Area Business Association. A number of businesses also contributed to the project, including builders Brett, Clint, Kyle and Heath Brown, who are descendants of town founder John Anderson Brown; Davco Electrical Services, TimberWorld, Composite Joinery, Pyramidz Architecture, Hutchinson Consulting Engineers and Warkworth Glass and Glazing.

Craig Powell from Majorlook Productions made the content for the kiosk and says the information can be updated to promote upcoming events and other information about the area.
