About the event

Come  try a selection of our specialist teas before taking a tour of the Estate and grounds of the historic Oruawharo Homestead.  We also have local Hawthrone coffee available and the bar is open too. (Try as many  teas as you like)

St  Vincent's would love you to spoil yourself with our elegant meal of  scones, jam & cream + sandwiches + savouries + sweets, all made from  scratch by Chef Will, while a slideshow of Oruawharo's History plays in the background.

A guided tour will follow giving you the opportunity to fully appreciate the complexity of the property's past. 

FYI: It seems that celebrating Tea is a festivity that should be happening all throughout the year! And since tea is the most consumed drink in the world (after water) no one is even going to complain.
