Havelock North, Hawke’s Bay: historic house venue.

The Panel Room at historic Duart House has a stateliness which is a wonderful background to a formal meeting or historic themed party.  The room is often used for music sessions, there is an upright piano (additional charge) if required. Lovely spot for a murder mystery dinner!  The room opens onto a sheltered private veranda.

There is a kitchen available and you can hire crockery/cutlery.

Built in 1882, Duart House is a beautiful example of a carefully restored & maintained colonial estate, with 3 acres of splendid gardens and trees of significance. It has high cultural and heritage significance and is protected under the Historic Places Act.

Hastings District

Hastings District

Hastings, paired with Napier as the twin cities of the region, has not only a vibrant city,  but the very varied surrounding hinterland of Hawke’s Bay. From traditional and modern vineyards to the coast and the hills, Hastings has venues for business and leisure, weddings and parties.

Known for food and wine, Hastings does entertainment well and stages a wide range of events. With it’s settled and glorious weather this is the destination for outdoor events for a larger part of the year.

It only rains for about 2 months – unfortunately no one knows which two months.  But for an outdoor event, Hastings is a very good bet.
