A milk station transformed

The Otaki Milk Station on the Kapiti Coast is a superb historical venue.
Just an hour north of Wellington, it's a world away.

The Station's history and stories are draped in contemporary character and inspired design. Built in 1919, many of its original features remain. Its rustic charm is perfect if you want a wedding venue, conference venue, or event venue with a difference. It is now a Historic Places Trust Grade II recognised building.

The recent renovation is influenced by early Italian architects and a vision. Original exposed riveted steel beams blended with fine art from Europe; four acres of stunning gardens against a quiet background of Tararua Ranges - each corner, paving square and black iron chandelier has been thoughtfully chosen.

This Kapiti Coast wedding venue, conference venue and event venue is now open for you to discover.

Inspiration and creation

Owner and restorer Lyndia Wood has given 12 years of inspiration and dedication to create this historical venue and magical place. She was inspired by the Paris Railway Station and love of Italianate style.

Lyndia has a background in antiques and restoration. Her attention to detail and unbridled drive to see The Milk Station restored has created a world class venue.

"I really enjoy creating, making something out of something; especially rescuing and restoring. I can always visualise the end result."
