Bledisloe Domain and Pavilion

Bledisloe Domain

The Bledisloe Domain and Pavilion is located 800 metres down Haruru Falls Road on the right-hand side. It's 4.7km from Paihia. The Domain is available for public bookings and is predominantly used for winter sports games. There are two full-sized fields (or two junior fields used for soccer and one senior field with rugby goal posts). The Pavilion is suitable for meetings, recreational programmes or as a facility for use during community events or after sports games.

As the Domain is owned by Waitangi National Trust and only leased to Council for recreation purposes, it has a number of restrictions that prevent events such as 21st birthday celebrations, weddings and socials.

The Domain is in a kiwi zone, so dogs are not permitted.

The Domain comprises:

  • Clubroom with basic kitchen with 6 tables and 30 chairs
  • Changing rooms
  • Sports field and surrounds
  • Car parking

The Domain is available for hire seven days a week between 8.00 am and 10.00 pm. Later times are subject to approval.
