I grew up going to Waingaro and it USED to be an awesome place to go for an enjoyable time, but these days its an absolute disappointment! The price just seems to keep increasing, while the quality keeps decreasing. Lifegaurds are in trackies and gumboots and you get bellowed at over the loud speaker to “do this”, “don’t do that” etc. You can’t relax out there any more. Much needed changes, including new ownership.You feel harrassed by them. Not our cup of tea any more.
