As of September 2019, The Lodge at Boomrock, will be offering seating for up to 120 guests or cocktail style for 150 with superb views of the South Island outline. This is the ideal venue for your special wedding day, conference, corporate team building event, private celebration, or even stag do. It is the perfect location to showcase New Zealand to international guests and as with the Auckland location, they will arrange all transport on your behalf. With new extended decks and lawns, a stunning new ceremony location, a larger capacity and a fully enclosed wet weather option, this really is at the top of the venue game. New Resident Chef Gareth Cowie, can design a menu to suit your requirements and budget that will include local and seasonal produce. Gareth shops at all the local markets and chooses his seafood from the fishmonger himself. A few standouts for me on his set menu are the Market Fish Crudo with a divine kombu lime dressing or the Goat curd tortellini with honeycomb, walnut velouté, braised baby leeks and potato glass. As a kiwi, I have to recommend the Banoffee pie, and if you don’t know what that is – you HAVE to try it! Similar activities are on offer at Kauri Bay like extreme golf, claybird shooting, knife throwing, cooking challenges and coastal tours. Enquire with the team to design a package to match your timeframe and desired experiences.
