    • Hi and thanks for your comment. Just to clarify – the maternity hospital has long since closed but the building remains as a private residence.

  2. Hi Hayley – Happy New Year,
    What a great photo of the old Waiprio Bay maternity hospital. We’d love to add your image to the New Zealand Heritage List Online to replace our very dated 1993 image. Here is a link to view our current List Online images:

    • Hi, thanks very much for your comment. I love those 1993 images, it’s another point in its history, and I’m glad to have the link to your listing now as part of this blog post. You’re very welcome to use anything of mine that is useful. Kind regards, Hayley.
