Wharekauhau has played host to a number of special events, each one being very unique in terms of their requirements, and the desired purpose of the event. For one large group we relocated various local winemakers, cheese makers, artisan chocolate makers, olive oil producers and local musicians as well as creating a miniature sunset jazz festival in the pool complex.
Another occasion was to mark the anniversary of a Sydney-based company, where we arranged private air charter into Wellington and organized a week of special Wharekauhau events for them (including an international band who performed live).
