Welcome to the Blue Waters Community Trust

The Blue Waters Community Trust was set up primarily to support amateur Lawn Bowls in the Auckland Bowls Inc. district and now supports many other community organisations in Auckland.

Blue Waters Community Trust generates funds for its Authorised Purpose by operating gaming machines in the greater Auckland region.

PLEASE NOTE:  The Trust currently has one venue ONLY, operating in Onehunga.  Applications that support activity in this local area will be given priority.  The Trust no longer operates on the North Shore of Auckland.
