Choose Rangitoto as a venue for a more adventurous wedding or function.

Those wanting a more adventurous wedding or event may choose Rangitoto. The volcanic ‘baby’ is Auckland’s youngest and largest cone, and hosts an emerging ecological landscape on a rugged terrain of scoria lava flows, frozen in time.


The Stone Hall at Islington Bay is available for hire for weddings, corporate functions or team building events. The Hall is rustic, with a wooden floor, and no power or water. You will find yourself transported back to the 1920s, the heyday of bach life on the island.

Permit and fees

You will need a permit for your event or wedding.

These are standard charges for holding weddings and other events within the Hauraki Gulf Maritime Park.

  • Permit application fee: $100 + GST ($115 GST incl)
  • Site fee: $150 + GST ($172.50 GST incl)
  • Site fee if you intend to set up a marquee: $300 + GST ($345 GST incl), marquee not included

There may also be additional costs for specific sites, and if you need DOC staff assistance to set up your event.

Note: DOC does not hire out marquees. You will need to organise your own marquee and transport it to the island. Contact us for DOC approved suppliers and transport providers.
