Historic Gear Homestead is now under the stewardship of experienced Wellington caterer Lorna Shelton of red herring catering. The Homestead has undergone extensive modern renovations and the kitchen has also been upgraded. Lorna wants to make Gear Homestead more accessible to the local Porirua community and is arranging regular special events such as Tapas Nights, jazz and regional food.
With views of Porirua Harbour, Gear Homestead is a great place to meet friends for a quick coffee, dine in for lunch, dinner in our tranquil restaurant or book a business meeting for a change of scenery! We are fully licensed and the perfect Wellington wedding venue for your special day, or simply stop in for that perfect cup of coffee.
There is plenty of parking and the grounds and gardens are ideal for a walk. We have outside tables and chairs and bean bags and games for children to enjoy in the many acres of grounds. We are located next door to Adrenalin Forest in Aotea, Porirua.
Come and enjoy the unique dining and visual experience that is Gear Homestead
