View map

The beautiful, architecturally-designed Ramaroa Centre is based near the entrance to Queen Elizabeth Park. 

The building has shelter, bathrooms, and space for hire. Inspired by the park's landscape and heritage - from Māori life in the wetland region to more recent stories of European settlement and the placement of US Marines in the park during WWII, the building is a striking place for any event.

Key design elements:

  • The shape of the two separate buildings linked by a gullwing roof and deck refer to the traditional Māori wharenui and the tent structures from the Marine camp
  • Posts are decorated with a contemporary design by local carver Nathan Te Rei
  • The gull-shaped roof references the coastal setting
