Helping Us Help Others

The Waikouaiti Coast Heritage Centre is pivotal to the community. It educates our youngsters, offers tourism opportunities, traces family ancestry and will boost Waikouaiti’s profile.

In fact, the Waikouaiti Coast Heritage Centre will become one of New Zealand’s leading regional museums and an important national icon.

The redevelopment project depends heavily on fundraising, donations and community involvement.

Would you like to support your local community by becoming involved in our work? There are two ways you can help.



Donate or pledge funds.


Volunteers spend a few hours each month manning the Museum and assisting visitors.


 You can also become a member of the association.
