At Poronui there is nothing that you have to do, but plenty that you can do. The property is a wonderful outdoor playground and provides ideal opportunities for weddings and corporate retreats. We also host a number of themed weekends, with our Food & Wine weekends and Ready for the Wild Challenge weekend big highlights.

Corporate Events

For a memorable team building event, Poronui combines the finest meeting facilities with cutting edge leadership and team development curriculum. All of our corporate activities are designed to provide outdoor experiences that will send you and your team home with new skills, a fresh perspective and a clear head. We offer an immersive cultural experience that takes guests back to early Maori days of living off the land, or a wild food challenge that will take you out of your comfort zone a little. Give us a call on +07 384 2080 to have a chat or send us an email with your inquiry.

Ready For The Wild Challenge

If you're looking for something very special as a corporate team challenge, then this is the event for you. Ten very different challenges, all of them exploiting the natural assets of Poronui, at least one of them guaranteed to take you out of your comfort zone no matter what your background.  More information can be found here.

Food and Wine Weekends

For a number of years the team at Poronui has been presenting boutique food and wine weekends in conjunction with a stellar array of chefs and local wineries. Our objective is still the same – to provide a high quality dining experience to all our guests, over and above the majesty and outdoor delights of Poronui itself. These culinary weekends are always sold out in advance, so register now for information on upcoming events, check out the chefs for this year, or contact us by email.
