If you have never been to Upper Lansdowne you are in for a real treat. The hall itself is a lovely, traditional timber building in the middle of the small village at the head of the Lansdowne valley. The landscape is spectacular, with majestic volcanic outcrops amid rolling green pastures and lush native vegetation, set against the stunning sandstone backdrop of the Lansdowne Escarpment. It is justly called ‘The Valley of Views’!
Come to one of our events and we promise you’ll have a great time! – You could also become more involved in the local community if you wish – you’ll be made very welcome.
