The Milk Station in Otaki:
Our Preferred Catering Venue on the Kapiti Coast


Discover your world away The Otaki Milk Station has been thoughtfully restored to a world-class standard for you to discover. Your wedding, conference or function will be remembered here. This inspired venue includes a main reception area for 200 people, cigar room, finishing kitchen, four acres of European inspired gardens, and 5 star accommodation. 

The Otaki Milk Station on the Kapiti Coast is a superb historical venue. Just an hour north of Wellington, it’s a world away. The Station’s history and stories are draped in contemporary character and inspired design. Built in 1919, many of its original features remain. Its rustic charm is perfect if you want a wedding venue, conference venue, or event venue with a difference. It is now a Historic Places Trust Grade II recognised building. The recent renovation is influenced by early Italian architects and a vision. Original exposed riveted steel beams blended with fine art from Europe; four acres of stunning gardens against a quiet background of Tararua Ranges – each corner, paving square and black iron chandelier has been thoughtfully chosen. This Kapiti Coast wedding venue, conference venue and event venue is now open for you to discover.
