Waunfawr railway station on the Welsh Highland Railway adjoins the Snowdonia Parc Brewpub and Inn at the southern end of the village.
The local community enterprise charity, Antur Waunfawr, among its many local initiatives, operates the Bryn Pistyll Site at Waunfawr as a popular attraction for local people and tourists. It includes a nature park, gardens and nursery, museum, crafts and local products shop, cafe and children�s play area.
The Marconi Company built a large high-powered Long Wave Wireless Telegraph transmitting station near the village in 1914 which worked in association with a receiving station at Tywyn. The building is now used as a climbing centre.
There are many recreational facilities available in Waunfawr, from playing snooker to playing football on the all-weather pitch. There is also a youth club and a junior football club for kids.
The village name is occasionally, and erroneously, spelt "Waenfawr" which in 1994 changed from "Waenfawr" to "Waunfawr".
