Duart House and Garden makes a delightful Boutique venue for your Wedding/ small luncheon/ evening and daytime parties, when you have something special to celebrate. It provides outstanding opportunities for photography and in Spring/ Summer time the garden is a blaze of gorgeous roses and flowers. Autumn time celebrates beautiful golds and coppers and makes a stunning backdrop to any event.

Inside the house a magnificent rimu staircase ascends to the first floor with our large and graceful dining room seating 60-70 guests for a formal sit-down dinner/ buffet. For a more casual cocktail-style occasion we can accommodate up to 100 guests. The hire fee includes the usage of 100x chairs, 6x long tables seating 10 and 10 round tables seating 4-6 people. For standing-only meetings, we can accommodate approximately 100 people.

Duart House is a non-profit making Charitable Trust. If you would like to make a donation or bequest to Duart House Society it would be greatly appreciated and put towards the care of the whole property along the lines adopted by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
