Unique venue

Central Otago Mirror - - WEEDDIINNGG GUIIDEE -

Laud­erdale is a unique wed­ding and event venue in Cen­tral Otago, 90 min­utes drive from Queen­stown, 30 min­utes from Alexan­dra and two hours from Dunedin. In the mid­dle of the South Is­land of New Zealand lies an area which boasts the hottest, the cold­est and the dri­est weather in the coun­try. Cen­tral Otago is also home to one of the world’s great gold rushes in the 1860s, big beau­ti­ful panora­mas, lovely moun­tains, ripe streams, and beau­ti­ful semi-arid high coun­try sta­tions. We are in the mid­dle of that re­mote, un­pop­u­lated area. Laud­erdale is a pri­vate and re­mote 60-acre es­tate (orig­i­nally a ’home block’ of Lauder Sta­tion) com­pris­ing of authen­tic stone and mud brick his­toric build­ings, the his­toric Becks church, some very beau­ti­ful ruins, and a 1.5km river frontage. This is a unique wed­ding and event venue, and also in­cludes a mod­ern func­tion cen­tre ca­pa­ble of seat­ing 80-120 peo­ple com­fort­ably in­doors. Laud­erdale serves as a point from which to ex­plore Cen­tral Otago. There are re­mote walks, re­mote fly fish­ing, cy­cling on the Cen­tral Rail Trail, of­froad sa­faris, moun­tain biking, hunt­ing, ice skat­ing, curl­ing and of course tour­ing. The sea­sons we ex­pe­ri­ence make Laud­erdale a true year­round des­ti­na­tion, with win­ter hav­ing as much to of­fer as sum­mer, au­tumn as spring. There is also a fair amount of bed & break­fast ac­com­mo­da­tion in the area which can ac­com­mo­date wed­ding par­ties and we are more than happy to rec­om­mend some to you. With our lux­ury travel de­sign com­pany, Ahipara, we have been recog­nised as hav­ing the most in­no­va­tive ac­tiv­i­ties in the coun­try and are bring­ing this ex­per­tise to Laud­erdale as we continue to de­velop some truly spe­cial op­tions.
