Tauranga wedding venue Matakana Island Retreat.

Matakana Island Retreat – A Unique Tauranga Wedding Venue

Matakana Island Retreat is a unique Tauranga wedding venue that is set within twenty acres of land that gently slope to the water’s edge of the beautiful Tauranga Harbour.

Within the property there are many locations for exquisite photography of your special day that will capture the memories for ever.

Here at Matakana Island Retreat, one of Tauranga’s most unique wedding venues, you and your guests will be able to enjoy the view over the harbour from the garden lawn or water’s edge, strolling along the beach or through the pines on this tranquil island location.

Please contact me so we can arrange a visit to our piece of paradise, that we so wish to share with you. Call 027 2233913 or email mary@matakanaislandretreat.com to ask any questions or organise a time to visit.

I look forward to meeting with you.
