Whangarei Agriculture & Pastoral Society


Catering to your every need

In addition to great meeting, conference and function rooms, Barge Showgrounds Events Centre also offers a full commercial kitchen, cafe, bar and large walk-in chiller.  There are also shower and toilet facilities – both at the Events Centre and on the lower area of the Showground.

Please note that Barge Showgrounds Maunu Reserve is a public area used by the community for walking dogs, children playing, athletics and equestrian events. While we hire the Events Centre Building, the Whangarei District Council looks after any bookings for the grounds.  Grounds bookings are made through Recreational Services on 0800 265 000.
