Gracious Mona Vale Homestead is one of the few grand old homes of Christchurch (circa 1890) to have its elegant grounds still intact - in this case 5 hectares of English-style gardens, with landscaped lawns on the banks of the tranquil Avon River. Located just 5 minutes' drive from the city centre with ample car parking, this is an ideal venue for a range of events from day meetings, conference dinners and corporate functions, to family birthdays, anniversary celebrations and lavish weddings.
