Dinner, Function

Nestled amongst vineyards and an operating airfield, the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre is the region’s most visited, single tourism attraction. The all-weather venue showcases two rare collections of aircraft, combined with creative displays and mannequins by Weta Workshop to present two remarkable immersive experiences.

The first exhibition space known as the ‘Knights of the Sky’ features film director, of The Hobbit and Lord of the Ring’s fame, Sir Peter Jackson’s Great War aviation collection. The second exhibition called ‘Dangerous Skies’, focusses on aircraft and stories from the Second World War. Both facilities are available for hire as an evening function venue.

The Museum entrance foyer and ‘Knights of the Sky’ exhibition is available for cocktail functions for up to 200 guests. ‘Dangerous Skies’, the newest exhibition space, can accommodate up to 350 guests for cocktails or 320 for seated dining. Movie set like scenes, complete with full-scale aircraft such as the Mk.XIV Spitfire will wow your guests and combined with award winning Marlborough wine and cuisine, will ensure a memorable and exciting event.

Our unique location adjacent to an operating airfield means that bespoke flying demonstrations and joy flights can be enjoyed during the day by special arrangement. Suggested menus, floor plans and equipment lists are all available upon request.

Location: Situated within an eight-minutes drive to Marlborough Airport and the Blenheim town centre.
