“ We couldn’t have chosen a better location for our wedding – Ngā Manu is just beautiful. The team at Ngā Manu were amazing and incredibly accommodating with all the choices we made for our big day. Our guests had a blast and we are still getting comments about the location several years later.” Craig and Tracey Deverall
We offer Robin’s Nest for gatherings of up to 90 people. This beautiful space provides year-round options – in summer, wonderful indoor-outdoor flow allows your guests access to a large deck and lawn; in the cooler months, stay warm inside while enjoying the wetland view.

Alcohol may be consumed on the premises but Ngā Manu Trust does not possess a license to sell or supply alcohol. Toilet facilities with wheelchair access are via a short covered walkway.
We can recommend experienced local wedding services, celebrants and caterers to tailor your unique day or you may prefer to make your own arrangements. The food featured in the photography is by local catering firm Party Perfect Catering.
