Coming Up


Winter finally here..

As the winter time is upon us, the licensed cafe is closed. But, as the school holidays approach, we have decided to open from the 3rd - 5th July.

Our normal off the board menu will be available as will the hot tub and fun 1hr rafting trips.


Hey get your team together now for another great night of knowledge, laughter and yummy supper.

The next quiz night at Awastone is on 23rd July starting at 7pm. Teams of 4 welcome, less is ok too. Pre-register to ensure you have a table.

See you there.

Summer Sunday Sessions 2021 Series

It was a shame the COVID killed the last 3 gigs of our Summer Sunday Sessions 2020 series, but hopefully we can come back with a vengeance!

We are working on some exceptional NZ bands and artists to entertain us all in our relaxed riverside haven. Stay posted on the events and follow us on FB or IG.
