A luxury boutique lodge on a tranquil rural estate

Welcome to Hiwinui Country Estate and congratulations on your engagement.

Hiwinui Country Estate is a stunning wedding venue located on our private 1500 acre farm with sweeping views over the Manawatu and Ruahine ranges. Our exclusive intimate setting will ensure your wedding day is an unforgettable lifelong memory.
Whether you are planning a smaller, private wedding or a larger celebration we have the capacity to host up to 100 people in our ceremony area. If you wish to have a formal seated reception with us, the capacity in the main lodge can seat up to 30 people or 50 people as a cocktail style wedding. If your number of guests exceed this you will require a marquee.  We are a seasonal wedding venue with weddings booked from the beginning of December till end of April
Our location is just a short 15 minutes drive from the centre of Palmerston North making it an accessible drive, or a short helicopter flight in to arrive in style.
If you are planning your wedding day we would love to hear from you.
