Hurakia Lodge

Dawsons newest exclusive venue is the secluded HURAKIA LODGE on Rakino Island.

Accessible only by helicopter or boat, the Lodge is a gem in the sparkling waters of the Hauraki Gulf.
A magnificent and luxurious destination that will impress your guests and give you a unique and memorable wedding day so close to home and yet it feels a world away.

The pavilion style lounge can host up to 100 guests and features sliding walls that can create a large open-air pavilion, making it the perfect all weather venue for your occasion.  A marquee can be installed on the expansive lawns for larger groups.

Exquisite views in every direction!
