Matakana Country Park Venue Options


This 50-acre estate is home to a bunch of excellent venues, plus fun options for your corporate or private event. There’s the well-known Stables Restaurant, the brand new Smith Bar, Bramble Canteen, the rustic two-storey Woolshed (one of a few DIY/BYO venues in the region) and the Military Arts facility. Your conference or private event activities can include custom-made team-building and leadership development. Your group can try out the purpose built obstacle course, or have a go at archery, paint ball. Or just indulge in some good old-fashioned fun with the team – gum boot throwing, egg and spoon or sack races.
