View from Maungaraki


The Main Hall is a large, gymnasium style room that can accommodate large gatherings of up to around 200 people. It measures approx. 20 metres long x 15 metres wide by 6 metres height.

It has been successfully used for weddings, birthday parties, community meetings, movie nights, family gatherings, fundraising events, soccer, children’s badminton (the ceilings aren’t high enough for competitive adults  )

Users of the hall are many and varied but include church services, martial arts, sports groups, dance clubs, children’s functions, indoor basketball, etc.

The hall is available for hire on Saturdays. Users are required to leave the hall tidy and thoroughly cleaned, and to remove all rubbish by 8am Sunday. Some cleaning equipment is available.

The facilities available include men’s and women’s toilets, and a kitchen with 2 ovens, barbecue, hot water, fridge, and washing up space.


Cost (pre-payment required): $15 per hour, plus a $300 bond for Saturday night functions which is conditionally refundable (policy available on request). 

Seating is available for around 180 people and there is a variety of tables as well as some staging. It may be possible to hire sound equipment from Maungaraki School, subject to availability and the discretion of the school.

Large functions are discouraged if they are expected to generate a lot of noise as the Hall is located in a Residential Area and residents’ concerns are our concerns. We, the Community Association do have to vet people wishing to hire to ensure we can be seen to be responsible in the Community. We are vigilant over noise. Loud, boozy functions that can spill outside are not suitable.

We ask users to respect the setting and we appreciate it when they do which is most of the time.

Hall Availablity Sunday - Friday: We have regular bookings most weekdays 7:15am – 5:30pm & 6:00pm – 9:00pm and for most of Sunday (there is a small window of opportunity in the afternoon) so it is only available for hire outside these times. Enquiries are welcome, but please be aware the answer will usually be that the hall is already booked.

For any booking inquiries please email Julia Cross at
