The Story

The Rippon Hall looks out over Rippon’s vines, Lake Wanaka, Ruby Island, and the Southern Alps beyond. With access right down to the lake itself, The Rippon Hall venue offers the very best of Central Otago: vineyards, lake and mountains.



Standing atop the Rippon hill, The Rippon Hall and its surrounding spaces offer a number of venue options for outdoor weddings.

The natural amphitheatre, offering views out over the vines to Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps, lies adjacent to The Rippon Hall and is a popular venue for wedding ceremonies.


Weddings at The Rippon Hall Wanaka


Whether you are looking for a small space for round table discussions, something larger for a full scale conference or trade show or an intimate and warm venue for an end of event dinner, The Rippon Hall has it all. The loft area is the perfect space for a breakout room or smaller meetings while the hall itself can be set up for lectures, larger tabled events or gala dinners. The covered terrace offers options for larger numbers and additional breakout spaces. In winter, the roaring fire will counter the snow-clad mountains; in summer, throw open the doors and enjoy Central Otago sunshine.



The Rippon Hall, as we have seen time and again, is limitless in its uses and its decoration. If it’s been done before, we can tell you how and if yours is an entirely new use and setup, we look forward to working on the event with you. Our on site Events Manager will work with you on every detail of your event to ensure that it is stress-free and utterly memorable.
