Corporate Functions and Work Dos
If you have a family orientated business, why not do something your staff can enjoy with their partners and children as well.
For an end of year function with a difference, talk to our restaurant team soon about your Christmas function booking. Hire our venue exclusively for your company or share a night with other groups. Either way, you'll have a 'wild' time at Willowbank.
Make a visit to Willowbank part of your Conference! We are pleased to be able to provide you with a premiere Maori cultural performance for your conference or group activity, or simply a different option for your conference delegates or partner programmes.

Company Picnics and BBQs
For some family-friendly fun, host your company picnic or BBQ in our fabulous farmyard area. It's a great was to say 'Thank You' to staff for all their hard work.
We welcome corporate functions for groups to Willowbank. Our close proximity to Christchurch International Airport (just a five minute drive) and the ability to provide your guests with an immediate "Taste of New Zealand" makes Willowbank Wildlife Reserve an ideal venue for company meetings when you are hosting international guests. Please note we are unable to provide an exclusive meeting room. Meetings will be in our general Restaurant or Cafe area.
Offsite Performances and Team Building
Want us to come to you? For your dinner, conference opening, event or celebration, Ko Tane can give you and your guests a truly unique cultural experience. If you prefer to highlight your event with an off-site Maori powhiri and/or cultural performance, we can design a show adapted to your choice of venue.
The off-site Ko Tane experience is ideal for incentive, team building, events, meetings or conferences that are unable to be held at Willowbank. Please contact us to discuss your individual event needs.
Do you have important customers visiting your company that you need to entertain without all the personal hassles of being there to pay? Would you like an easy way to be able to reward your staff for all their hard work with a family day out - on the company!
