Te Runanga Tea House


Dating back to 1903, Te Runanga Tea House is one of Rotorua's most nostalgic venues. Located within the heart of the picturesque Government Gardens and adjacent to Rotorua city centre, Te Runanga (The Meeting House) combines quaint charm with historical character. Built as a tea pavillion in 1903, Te Runanga served as a social centre for spa facilities where visitors could relax early last century.

Its location, mid-way between the Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre and the Energy Events Centre, makes is great for an extra breakout room. Combined with its charm and character, the position of the Tea House means the venue attracts many smaller conference and incentive groups seeking something extra special.

Te Runanga is the perfect spot for incentive and executive dinners. The heritage-protected building's wide three-sided veranda overlooking the Government Gardens provides the ideal setting for pre-dinner cocktails, and is a favourite for retreats cocktail events and weddings.
