The Perfect Venue for your Akaroa Event or Function

Let the Boat Shed inspire with its special magic... creating wonderful, lasting impressions​

Akaroa Boat Shed truly offers a unique, one of a kind venue that is unlike anything else. With arguably New Zealand’s best small venue for conferences, functions or wedding ceremonies, our personal service and attention to detail will ensure an unforgettable experience.

Originally formed as a rowing club in 1881-82, the current wooden building was established in 1914, with boat storage downstairs and a dance hall upstairs. Although this grand old lady still has graceful curves overlooking the sparkling waters of Akaroa Harbour, she keeps a more dignified pace these days, still gathering people together. 

We can offer our personalised service to package the Akaroa Boat Shed according to your individual tastes and needs. The Boat Shed is the perfect setting where Akaroa can inspire with its special magic, creating wonderful, lasting impressions.

For your convenience, the nearby Akaroa Village Inn has a variety of accommodation options with 30 serviced apartments which vary from studio to three bedrooms and can accommodate up to 115 people.
