A Fonterra dairy factory is a prominent blue building in the middle of the town. Waitoa has a primary school with around 30-50 children. The Waitoa river runs through the village and is prone to flooding.
A railway line runs to the dairy factory, and used to go to Te Aroha, however this section was closed and the line only runs to service the dairy factory.
