The Wild On Waiheke Guide To Hosting A Christmas Party That Doesn’t Suck
Christmas parties are a strange and wonderful event. Whether you’re celebrating with colleagues, a hobby group, or your family, it’s a chance for everyone to kick back and relax with a few drinks and some good food. However, it’s no secret that some Christmas parties just suck. Yep, we said it. They’re bad. Everyone is bored, the drinks tab runs out too quickly, and people are checking their watches to see if it’s too early to bail. At Wild Estate and Wild On Waiheke Activities, we endeavour to avoid bad Christmas parties at all costs. We just don’t have the time of day for a party that sucks. That’s why we provide the best Christmas party venue in Auckland. So, save yourself the pain of enduring an awful Christmas party and follow our guide to hosting an event that people will talk about all year long.
Choose An Incredible Christmas Party Venue In Auckland (See: Wild Estate & Wild On Waiheke)
In Auckland, a Christmas party venue isn’t too hard to find. However, you don’t want to book just any old venue. You want people to be able to cut loose and have a great time, and for that, you need to find the perfect place to hold your Christmas party in Auckland. If you haven’t already considered it (although we know you have because you’re reading this article), Wild Estate On Waiheke is renowned for holding unforgettable Christmas parties that everyone can enjoy. So, what sets our venue apart? Well, we’re glad you asked.
We can cater to any group size. At Wild Estate and our Wild On Waiheke Activities, we can host Christmas parties for groups of 2 or 3 right up to groups of several hundred people. That’s right, no matter how big your workplace may be, we can organise a good time for everybody.
We have a menu to die for. When it comes to food, Wild Estate aren’t here to mess around. Our function menus are infamous, and you can choose from pizza or a shared feast if you’re looking to cater. But, of course, if you're a small group and you’d prefer everyone get their own food, that’s okay too. Our Wild Estate restaurant takes sharing plates, platters, and grazing boards to a whole new level. Our restaurant menu and function menu ingredients are mainly sourced locally, so when you order food at Wild Estate, you’re sampling some of the finest fresh produce New Zealand has to offer. What more could you ask for?
We’ve got the very best drinks on tap. An Auckland Christmas party is incomplete without a few beverages to go around! At Wild Estate, we’ve got Wild on Waiheke Activities, hand-crafted, thirst-quenching beer straight from the Waiheke Island Brewery, premium wines made within our Wild Estate Vineyard, and those of you who prefer not to drink, we have our infamous zero alcohol Waiheke Island ginger beer.
Planning Christmas functions is stressful. There are so many details to take care of that it can be an absolute nightmare. So why not leave it to the professionals? At Wild Estate On Waiheke, we’ll take care of everything.
Entertainment space. Whether you’ve organised your own entertainment for an exclusive event, or want to enjoy our, let us to sort it out for you, we’ll set up an area for your party guests to dance the night away.
Decorations. If there’s one thing the Wild Estate team love, it’s a beautifully decorated event space! We welcome these for exclusive use events, such as in our downstairs Cellar Bar and event room. We’ve hosted plenty of Auckland Christmas functions, so you can count on us to make the place merry and bright.
Catering. We’ll make sure the food and drinks are served at exactly the right time so your guests will never go hungry or thirsty.
Speeches and presentations. What Christmas party is complete without some tipsy speeches? We’ll organise a microphone and sound system, and you focus on writing about what a year it’s been.
Okay, a Secret Santa can be fun (provided the person who drew your name actually knows you). But once you’ve had your socks, jocks, and a Favourites box, what else is there to do? When you choose Wild Estate and Wild On Waiheke Activities for your Christmas functions in Auckland, you’ll never have a dull moment.
Archery. There’s nothing quite as invigorating as stringing up a bow and arrow and letting loose. Don’t worry if you’ve never shot an arrow before; our instructors will show you everything you need to know.
Laser claybird shooting. If you’re looking for an outside-the-box Christmas party activity, might we suggest laser claybird shooting? With our Wild On Waiheke Activities, your party guests can enjoy a laser claybird shooting and archery combo, so you can get the best of both worlds.
Giant games. If you’re looking for an activity to wind down with, we’ve got giant chess, giant Connect 4, and giant naughts and crosses. Everyone knows games are more fun when they’re giant!
Trampoline. There's no better combination than sitting back and enjoying a nice cold Waiheke Island Brewery beer whilst watching your kids can play on our giant trampoline.
Californian sandbags. If you’re looking for an activity you can do with a drink in hand; the Californian sandbags are the place to be. Grab a couple of party guests and get a game going.
The final piece of the Christmas party puzzle is this; just relax and enjoy yourself. Christmas parties tend to suck if they’re too tightly structured with a strict itinerary to adhere to. So grab a drink, trust Wild Estate and their Wild On Waiheke team to take care of the food and drinks, and just enjoy watching everyone have the time of their lives. You’ve done great. Santa would be proud.
Heaven on Earth is closer than you think. In fact, it’s just a short 35-minute ferry ride from Auckland.

At Wild Estate, we believe people should work hard and play harder, so we’ve built a place where even the most tightly wound among us can let off some steam. Whether your idea of a good time is claybird shooting, archery, giant chess, or just sitting back admiring the view with a cold one in hand, our Wild On Waiheke activities are just the thing for you. So, what are you waiting for? Bring your mates, bring your work colleagues, hell, you can even bring the dog. Come and experience everything Waiheke Island has to offer.

Make sure you avoid all chances of it flopping by leaving the planning and preparation in the capable hands of the Wild On Waiheke activities team. We’ve got Waiheke Island activities everyone will enjoy.
Giant chess. Who doesn’t love a game of giant chess over a cold pint of hand-crafted beer? If you want to get away from the noise of your Christmas party for just a little bit, a relaxing game of giant chess is just the thing.
Volleyball. Delicious seafood, great drinks, and sunny weather… the only thing that’s missing from this Christmas party is a friendly game of volleyball. So grab a few of your workmates and enjoy a game or two.
Enjoying a beverage in the sun. Wild Estate are fortunate enough to have the stunning Waiheke Island scenery to enjoy, so we’ve got plenty of outdoor areas in which you can sit and soak up the sunshine. There’s nothing better than lying in the sun with a drink in hand after a big Christmas meal.
