A beautiful rustic venue in North Canterbury

Tipapa Estate was originally part of a 10,000-acre sheep station, with The Woolshed being constructed from native timbers in 1890. The current and magnificent Tipapa homestead was completed in 1928 and is just over an hours’ drive from Christchurch.

The Woolshed at Tipapa has been meticulously restored to its former and character-filled glory and is surrounded by extensive gardens, offering a stunning, unique and rustic venue for memorable weddings, events and experiences.
