The Pines is a long established function and events venue nestled in the hills of Houghton Bay, Wellington. Looking south towards the South Island, the views speak for themselves with floor to ceiling panoramic windows making a perfect backdrop for any special event.
We are an easy 15 minute scenic drive from central Wellington, along one of the region's most stunning sections of coastline.
The Pines is available for hire for all types of private functions including weddings, christenings, anniversaries, fundraiser events, corporate lunches or dinners, club meets and birthdays.
We also hold special events such as Christmas Day lunch and New Year's Eve celebrations - which are open to the public. And due to our fantastic location they are always very popular, so bookings are essential.
The Pines is a family business that we've been running for over 27 years - a guarantee of value for money - and we will ensure your function is a memorable one.
