Weddings In the Gardens

Whangarei Quarry Gardens is a magical venue for your special day; a calm, green oasis only a few minutes drive from central Whangarei.


There are several sites within the Gardens that are suitable for small or large ceremonies, with some parties choosing to come in for photo-shoots only.


The Visitor's Centre could be the perfect venue for your reception, with a large sunny bacony and plenty of room for guests to spill out into the Gardens. There is also a golf cart available to help guests get to the ceremony area on the day, and our event manager Kerry, will help ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.

Follow this link to get our current price-list for the different packages available.

The talented team from Northland Youth Theatre and Circus Kumurani teamed up to create a magical journey to "The Garden That Time Forgot". It was the perfect production for the Gardens and took the audience on an exciting adventure that was extremely well recieved with sold out shows every night. Bad weather ruined the party however, so we did a rerun in December 2018 to sold out shows. Thank you Northland Youth Theatre for bringing your amazing talents to the Gardens!
