Blue Heron is an affordable, comfortable holiday and accommodation destination.  This combination makes it a natural choice where a gorgeous outdoor location and price are equally important. 

We are different than most venues.  You are welcome to use our facilities and equipment, while still having the freedom to bring in anything else you need to make your event especially yours.  This makes us a cost-effective choice.  Cater yourself, or bring your own caterer. 

Either way, feel free to use our facilities.  Whether you want the informality of the outdoors, or the formality of a marquee, there is a large space on the private peninsula suitable for either.

At Tamaterau on the Whangarei Heads, only two hours from Auckland and ten minutes from Whangarei, we have 250 metres of private waterfront, fringed by 200-year-old Pohutakawas.  A special and unique feature is the fifty-metre peninsula, with views over the Whangarei Harbour to Marsden Point, One Tree Point and Limestone Island.  Boat launching facilities are adjacent. Whangarei Airport is only five minutes away.

Pricing options vary, from day rates for a small area or piece of accommodation, to renting the entire park for your group, including all facilities and accommodation, or any combination in between. 

If you want your guests to stay overnight, removing any concerns about driving after your event, we can accommodate approximately fifty guests, and an additional ninety if camping is their thing.

Contact us to discuss your needs.  Our size gives us flexibility, and we are very keen to organise something to suit you and make your guests feel welcome. We invite you to make an appointment to visit, so you can visualise your event here at the Blue Heron.

• Waterfront barbecue house with barbecue, hot & cold running water, fridge/freezer and seating for sixteen
