Southern Land Southern People

If you are looking for a large staff party, client or conference pre-dinner drinks, an event in Southern Land, Southern People will be one to remember. Surrounded by giant moa articulated skeletons, and the stories of the people of the south, conversations will flow and connections will be made.

An event in a Museum gallery is one your attendees will not soon forget, and with the largest fossil in New Zealand, our enormous prehistoric plesiosaur, or a collection of extinct native birds as talking points,grass to gold, fur seals to flax, clay to coal, the natural resources available have shaped the human stories of southern New Zealand this is a backdrop like no other. Unlike most museums, we can serve cocktails and canapes in the gallery, and your guests will have a night, or morning, to remember.
