Conference Venue

Conferences & Retreats

Treat your team, colleagues or delegates and host your next 'getaway' conference, planning session or corporate retreat at Flaxmill. Enjoy a unique, relaxing environment within a 2.5 hour drive from Auckland, Hamilton or Tauranga. 

With only birdcalls and lapping waves to distract you, our tranquil setting near Cooks Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula is an ideal destination for strategic planning and clear thinking. Our large grounds provide ample space for team building activities and relaxation.

Flaxmill offers 'accommodation and venue' options for groups from 12 to 80 and are one of few such providers in the local Mercury Bay area. Guests stay in our superior apartment-style Accommodation and enjoy the modern conference faciiities in our Event Centre. 

Exclusive use of the whole property can also be booked (subject to availability).

Our location is convenient to many off-site team building activities and we can give you some ideas and information that might best suit your group - from low cost options of digging a spa pool at Hot Water Beach or enjoying the Cathedral Cove coastal walkway to paid boat trips and fishing charters, kayaking, snorkelling, a round of golf or local craft beer and wine tasting.

"What a beautiful spot for our team planning retreat. We stayed in three of your houses, and felt instantly 'at home'. The picturesque surroundings were just perfect for allowing us all to slow down, and start thinking. Such gracious and thoughtful hospitality, too - everyone wanting to go the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect - and it was!" - Fiona
