About Us

Mona Vale reopened in December 2016 and welcomed the public for events and dining. 

Christchurch City Council undertook a two-year, $3.2m rebuild and strengthening project so the delightful Mona Vale Homestead could once again open its doors to the public.

Today the gracious Victorian building is once more resplendent in her heritage best, operating again as a wedding, special occasions, events and meeting venue.
