The Historic Village – experts in business events

Situated on the edge of the Kopurererua Valley sits the 13.5 acre expanse of The Historic Village. What was once a living museum is now an eclectic mix of shops, community organisations, a thriving art scene and a number of well-equipped corporate venues for hire.

Hosting your event in this diverse community hub not only provides a vibrant and relaxed atmosphere, but also means your function can be tailored with personalised add-ons such as workshops, art lessons and team-building activities across the grounds and native bush.

These activities entail working with and supporting resident not-for-profit and community organisations and tick the corporate social responsibility box by contributing to our region’s wellbeing.
