We are located on the beautiful Kapiti Coast, just a one hour drive from both Wellington and Palmerston North. Our property is like a peaceful oasis bordering the Waikanae River and a short walk from Waikanae Beach.
El Rancho is one of the largest camp and conference centres in New Zealand. Our key advantage is our ability to cater for any size group in a variety of venues. Whether you are planning a small retreat or a large conference, we have a lot to offer:
The first step to booking your conference is to provide us with your event details on the form below. Our bookings administrator will contact you and take you through the initial steps and provide you with a package tailor made to suit your conferencing needs.
Next, a site visit would be beneficial so we can show you around the facilities to ensure that what we offer will meet your needs and that expectations are met on both sides.
Once the reservation is confirmed we will provide you with a list of information that we would require around a 1-2 weeks prior to your arrival.On arrival you will meet with your assigned host who will look after you for the duration of your stay and ensure that all runs smoothly.
