Waitangi is a place of cultural, spiritual, and historical significance for Aotearoa New Zealand and has been a place of gathering for hundreds of years. With panoramic sea views, parklike grounds and lush native bush, Waitangi is the ideal site for your next gathering. Waitangi Treaty Grounds features a variety of venues to suit conferences, corporate functions, meetings, weddings, and other special events.
Tahuaroa, the recently opened event space with a venue capacity of 190, has transformed the portfolio of events Waitangi can cater for. Tahuaroa, meaning large open space, is located behind Te Rau Aroha museum amongst the native trees of the Upper Treaty Grounds. With its own private entrance, wraparound decking and contemporary design, Tahuaroa is a distinctive space for conferences, functions, meetings, weddings and events. Fitted with a partitioning wall, Tahuaroa can be adapted into three separate rooms, Tahuaroa (200 m2), Hokianga (140m2) and Taumarere (60 m2). Each room comes with integrated technology controls, floor power points, speakers, projectors and air conditioning. The large stacking doors open out onto a private covered deck and courtyard area, perfect for outdoor entertainment and indoor-outdoor flow.
Our team can provide a range of catering options, utilising the onsite kitchen, including morning and afternoon tea, á la carte or buffet lunches and dinners, cocktails and canapés and upmarket gala events. The event space has disabled access and seven toilets.
