Venue Options

The Red Barn

Originally built around the turn of the century, The Red Barn was a livery stable, where stagecoaches would stop to swap horses for their journeys across the greater Waikato. The Red Barn has undergone multiple renovations since and today is the Waikato’s leading wedding venue.

The Red Barn features a large dining room that can host up to 140 guests in comfort, booth seating and an upstairs break away area.

The Shed

A recent addition to The Red Barn’s offering, ‘The Shed’ has been used for many years to rear calves in. More recently, it has been lovingly transformed into an authentic function space, radiating rural charm.

The Shed can seat up to 60 guests using our existing furniture. Should you require additional seating, this can be hired locally.

Centrally located

A short 45-minute drive from Hamilton, Tauranga and Rotorua and just over 1.5 hours from Auckland's CBD.

With just a short drive, you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and find yourself surrounded by stunning natural scenery, ready to host an unforgettable event.


  • On behalf of Ebbett Prestige Tauranga we would like to say a huge thank you for all the hard work and preparation that went into our Range Rover launch in June!

    We brought along some of Land Rover’s most valued customers for a 5-course degustation personally designed for us by your star Chef and wow, what a memorable experience for all. Our guests absolutely loved the food and could not get over how beautiful the venue was.

    Thanks again and we look forward to hosting more Land Rover events at The Red Barn in the future!

    Ebbett Prestige, June 2022
