Woodbury Hall


In  1880 the Woodbury Domain was established  and in 1911 the Woodbury hall was built to celebrate the coronation. Over the years, various extensions have been made to the hall using timber cut from trees planted in the domain by the pioneers. It is now one of the biggest country halls in New Zealand and is widely used by the community.

The hall is suitable for wedding receptions, parties and dances. It has been used by the local Dramatic Society for their plays, and also by the local school for end-of -year shows as well as the annual flower show. It has a capacity of 240 people.
