Book your Christmas or summer event at Preserved

Family get-togethers, hen and stag events

A different world just across the harbour

This Christmas escape to a different world, glide across the Harbour (7-minute ferry ride), or take the scenic drive around the bays (35-minute drive).

Sip craft beer, cocktails infused with wildflowers or tea made with native kawakawa in the open-air deck with a green backdrop of hills. Nibble on seasonal platters, graze on tables laden with summer fare or sit down to a long table feast.

Roll your sleeves up and learn a new skill in the cook school.
