Groups of 100-120 can hire our venue exclusively from 4pm. Why not hire exclusive use of our activities 4-6pm, then dine and dance the night away! We have options to spread your group across our venue, with indoor and outdoor tables and 'chill zones' in between.
End of year Staff parties
We won't charge a venue hire - all we require is agreed minimum spend and prepayment of your meals and guaranteed numbers, and we'll take care of the rest!
For large private functions from 4pm, you can either just come for dinner and drinks, or if you're after activities as well, but in a chilled out, relaxed style, why not ask about our Freeflow Exclusive Use Activity package. This specially designed package is for groups of 120+ and offers full exclusivity of our venue, PLUS we provide loads of instructors for unlimited sessions of ALL our outdoor activities to keep everyone active.

Being such an outdoor venue we only book to our indoor capacity (just in case) and then let you spread out for your exclusive event! We seat 120 covered seats in our Wild Estate Restaurant. Outdoors when the sun shines (hey it's Waiheke - it usually does) there's another 80 seats, plus 40 in our cellar, and 25 on our terrace.
We can simply hire additional marquee's for groups over 140, and up to our maximum capacity of 200 people (subject to our special licence approval).
Sure can! Speak to us about hiring local DJ's, bands, or you can even bring your own. We do of course have our own music too - just tell us your mood and we'll do our best to accommodate!
It doesn't happen often, however every now and then the weather gods are against us. For groups this size, we have special T&C's so simply enquire for further information.
I'm afraid we don't have a BYO licence, however as we're both a winery AND a brewery we have you covered! We have our very own beer & wine at reasonable prices. We also make fantastic island cocktails, and mocktails and our World Famous (on Waiheke) Waiheke Brewery Ginger Beer for the non drinkers too, along with an extensive alcohol free range to look after your team.
Who doesn’t love a good birthday party? Especially when it’s one of the big ones. We specialise on birthdays for 40th, a 50th, a 99th; family celebrations you’ll remember for a lifetime. However, when you’re looking to plan an unforgettable birthday party, you might feel overwhelmed by the pressure to make everything perfect. Well, you can stop stressing because the Wild Estate team is here to help. Our little slice of island paradise is renowned as one of the best birthday venues in Auckland, and we’re here to let you in on everything you need to know to throw the best Wild Estate birthday party extravaganza. So, get your notebook out and jot this down because you’re going to wanna start planning ASAP.
The first and most important step to planning a great birthday party is choosing the perfect venue, and you won’t find any Auckland birthday venues quite like Wild Estate & Wild On Waiheke. Here are a few things to consider when selecting birthday venues.
How many people are invited? Whether you’re inviting dozens of people to a milestone birthday blowout or you’re getting together a small group of mates, you’ll need to find a place that will cater to your group size. At Wild Estate, we can host events for parties of all shapes and sizes. Just let us know how many people are coming, and we’ll take care of the rest.
What is there to do? If your idea of a great party is eating delicious food, drinking, and talking with your mates, Wild Estate On Waiheke won’t disappoint. However, sometimes you want a little something extra to spice the day up, and boy do we deliver. Our Wild On Waiheke activities include archery, claybird shooting, volleyball, giant chess, petanque, or bounce on our adult-sized trampoline at Wild On Waiheke. So your party guests will be anything but bored.
What is everyone going to eat? 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’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 On Waiheke, you’re sampling some of the finest fresh produce New Zealand has to offer. What more could you ask for?
What is everyone going to drink? Of course, no birthday party is complete without drinks! Unfortunately, many birthday party venues in Auckland have a pretty standard selection of beverages, which can be a little dull. However, at Wild Estate On Waiheke, we have a select range of premium beer and wine that come straight from our Waiheke Island Brewery and Wild Estate Vineyard.
Okay, so you know we have the best beer of any party venue in Auckland on tap, but you might be wondering which beverages to sample at your birthday party. Whether you open a bar tab or your guests pay for a drink, there are a few drinks we’d definitely recommend trying. Our destination brewery means you taste our beers right where they’re brewed, fresh is best!
Island IPA. There aren’t many people who don’t enjoy a great IPA, especially one as complex and rich as our Island IPA. With the perfect balance of hops, malt, and yeast, this beer will go down a treat.
Baroona Pale Ale. If a summer’s afternoon by the beach were a drink, it would be our Baroona pale ale. This delicious grapefruit, citrus, and floral beer is our most popular beer by far, and after one sip, you’ll understand why.
Porter. Rich, creamy, and made with a blend of eight different grades of malted barley for colour, body, and flavour… we love sipping on the dessert flavours of the Waiheke Island Brewery Porter.
Wheat Beer. Our Waiheke Island Brewery has crafted a sneaky beer in their Wheat Beer. ‘How is it sneaky?’ you may ask? Well, it’s so light, crisp, and refreshing that you’ll have finished your glass before you know it. But, don’t worry; there’s plenty more to go around.
The Drunken Oyster. Okay, we’re pretty sure no other Auckland party venue can lay claim to this Wild On Waiheke original. The oysters from Te Matuku Bay needed the perfect beer to complement their fresh, salty flavour, and our Waiheke Island Brewery Porter did just the trick, but we’ve taken the experience to another level. So do yourself a favour and grab a Porter. Grab a freshly shucked oyster, and pop it into your beer. That’s right. Let the flavours mingle for a bit. Salute your Drunken Oyster and then bottoms up.
At Wild Estate On Waiheke, we don’t just take care of the food, bevies, and adventure. We’ve also got your entertainment covered. We can either source entertainers for you, or you’re welcome to hire your own entertainment, and we’ll help them get set up. Wondering how to narrow down the right performers for your party? Wonder no more; the Wild Estate On Waiheke team has some great tips.
Match your entertainment to the venue. All Auckland birthday party venues are different, and they have their own vibe. Depending on the theme of your venue and party, you’ll want to find entertainment that matches that vibe. At Wild Estate On Waiheke, the atmosphere is the very definition of chilled. You can theme your party however you want, so no matter what kind of entertainment you hire, they will fit seamlessly into the venue here.
Consider your own taste. After all, this is your party! If you can’t stand EDM, why have a DJ pumping non-stop house at your party? Instead, choose an entertainer who’ll play the music you enjoy all night long.
Check with the party venue. Some venues have some pretty strict rules about the types of entertainment they can and can’t host, and it usually comes down to equipment limitations. Fortunately, Wild Estate On Waiheke can work around whatever you have planned. So give us a call, let us in on your dream party plans, and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
You don’t have to pick live entertainment. If your budget recoils at the thought of hiring a DJ or a live musician, consider hiring yourself a jukebox instead! You and your friends can create a playlist you’ll all enjoy. Plus, a jukebox’s set never ends, so you can dance the night away.
Heaven on Earth is closer than you think. In fact, it’s just a short 35-minute ferry ride from Auckland. That’s right, Waiheke Island is a place where the food is mouth-wateringly good, the drinks are always flowing, and the adventure never stops. At Wild Estate On Waiheke, 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, Wild On Waiheke has 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.
