Tūhura's Tropical Forest

Come out of the cold and enter the idyllic tropics! Where exotic butterflies flutter in flashes of iridescent colour, lush foliage blooms and fish play in the ponds under the five-metre waterfall, this three-storey venue is breathtaking. If you want a winter wedding in Dunedin, or a space to wow your clients, the Tropical Forest is perfect.

We can serve cocktails and canapes, bring in live music, even organise yoga amongst the butterflies for a team building with a difference. This space is magical, and will be an evening to remember as they release new butterflies to take their first flight into the canopy.
