Our Community

welcome | haere mai

Warkworth Town Hall has been a centre of community life for Warkworth, Kaipara & the Matakana Coast for over 100 years.

The recently renovated hall and facilities are available for everyone in the Mahurangi community to hire. We hope to see you soon.

In the Entranceway to Warkworth Town Hall stands an octagonal memorial to the members of our local community who fought in the Great Wars.

It lists the towns and villages in our community whose men & women ‘signed up’, were all farewelled and some welcomed home – at Warkworth Town Hall.

100 years on, the residents and families of these same communities have contributed to the restoration of this important local building, through their rates and donations.

We welcome and encourage everyone in the Warkworth Area communities to now embrace and use this great facility.

It is yours.

Exercising and recreation

You can exercise in your local area on your own, or with people in your household bubble. If you are exercising outside, try to keep a 2 metre distance from people who are not in your bubble. The most important thing is to stay safe and stay close to home. Go to your local park or beach, not your favourite one. You cannot stay overnight at your bach or holiday home.

Do low-risk activities so you do not need rescuing or medical care. If you are experienced you can do more activities. These include:

• surfing — if you are an experienced surfer, you can go to your local break. If you are not experienced, do not surf.
• tramping — is okay for day walks on easy trails. Remember to keep your distance from other people.
• mountain biking — is okay on easy trails if you are experienced and know the trail. Choose a trail close to home. Do not go on tracks that are grade 3 or above.
• swimming — in safe local spots. Do not swim far from shore.
• horse riding — if you are an experienced rider and it is low risk. Stay as close to home as you can.
• fishing – you can fish from a wharf or the shore, but do not cast off the rocks or fish from a boat. Boating is not allowed. Keep it local — go to your nearest fishing spot, not your favourite fishing spot.

Event Catering

You can use your own caterer or our in house caterer for events of any size.

There is also a fully-equipped kitchen available for hire, where you can arrange your own refreshments.

Alcohol Licensing

Private events where alcohol is consumed but not sold and where the event is not open to the public do not require a licence.

Public events – and where alcohol is purchased, require a temporary licence which you will need to apply for. We can help guide you through this process.

Occupational Safety & Health
Hirers are responsible for the safe running of the event they have organised and will need to appoint a Safety Rep. On this website you will find information about the OSH Requirements – and our facility co-ordinators will explain it to you in person.

This website will soon feature more information about the OSH
