The Black Barn

Wedding Venues Conference Venues
Locate high on a ridge-line overlooking lake Tarawera and out to the mountainous wilderness beyond, you could easily believe you’re right out back in the high country blocks, when in fact you’re just fifteen minutes from the hub of Rotorua in the central North Island.

An event at The Black Barn has an atmosphere of intimacy and elegance whilst still retaining that down to earth, relaxed kiwi charm.  Rustic farm barn replete with pebble courtyard entrance, huge kauri doors, rough-sawn macrocarpa walls and polished concrete floors.

There are many stunning areas for exchanging your vows and entertaining guests, both within the landscaped grounds and around the 65 acre farm, with grassy meadows all around and gorgeous native bush, forest, lake and mountain backdrops.

The team work with some of the highest regarded chefs and caterers in the region and beyond.  From a plated five course sit-down menu to more casual grazing options, contemporary New Zealand cuisine to asian fusion, there are options to suit your style and budget.

There is a BYO alcohol option with no corkage charge.

A bespoke, black-poled clear marquee that can be hired with just 24 hours notice as a wet weather option for your outdoor ceremony.  For your guests comfort, well appointed individual bathrooms and toilets for ladies, gents and a disability friendly option.

There are also boutique accommodation options.
