About Gear Homestead Bistro

Gear Homestead Building

Gear Homestead ‘Okowai’ is a historic building in Porirua, New Zealand. It was listed by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust (since renamed to Heritage New Zealand) as a Category 2 historic place in 1983.

Gear Homestead was acquired by chef and caterer Lorna Shelton after emigrating to New Zealand to join other family members from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Working along with Red Herring Catering, Gear Homestead is now house for the Gear Homestead Bistro and Venue.

We work hard to bring you the highest quality. With Views of Porirua Harbour, Gear Homestead is a great place to come and relax.

Come and enjoy a delicious dinner out of our gourmet menu with an international influence.
