The Basin Reserve looking towards the grandstand. It’s sunny and a cricket game is underway on the field.

The Basin is one of the most iconic and intimate cricket venues in the world and a unique offering within Wellington. The Basin has two easily accessible rooms available for hire, with parking on-site.

The Longroom has a capacity of up to 150 guests for a seated meal. Floor-to-ceiling windows also make it perfect for exhibitions or full-day meetings. Equally as versatile is The Norwood room with a capacity for up to 200 guests or split into two smaller rooms. Both function spaces look directly onto the wicket making this one of the coolest venues in the capital.


  • During meeting break times, or for pre-dinner drinks and canapes, The Cricket Museum can be open for guests. It houses cricket memorabilia from the 1800s to today.
  • Rooms are fully accessible.
