Just 10 minutes out of the village and 90-minutes from Christchurch, Amuri Estate’s supreme views set the scene for perfection, while the luscious variety of spaces ensures events of all shapes, sizes and styles can be catered for.

The new modern barn style building has a large reception hall with capacity for 200 and a small meeting room with capacity for 20 to 60, including bathroom, kitchen and bar facilities, and breakout spaces.

On-site accommodation includes a lodge sleeping six within three king rooms with ensuites, and a kitchen-living area, while the Wallace Peak Cottage sleeps two in a king room and has a kitchen-living area and log fire.

When it comes to catering, Amuri works with three catering companies, ensuring you can get the cuisine and drinks of your choice in buffet, plated and shared styles from the fully-equipped kitchen and bar.

Amuri Estate has a hire catalogue and equipment packages available including AV, styling, table settings and more – which make organising your event a breeze.
