Great Northern Room
The Great Northern Room on level one of the Ellerslie Stand is a fantastic room available for hire for up to 350 guests.
With the ability for complete blackout, this room is ideal for seminars, AGMs and conferences - or any event where professional presentations are required. The room is named after Australasia's longest horse race - the 6400 metre-long Great Northern Steeplechase - which is held at Ellerslie each September.
The Great Northern Room also has private bar facilities, so is a great option for breakfasts, luncheons and dinners, or pre-dinner drinks before a function in the Newmarket Room just down the escalator.
From the room you can see the infamous Ellerslie Hill, which forms part of the Great Northern Steeplechase course, and which jockeys and horses must climb a staggering three times as they race.
Located close to the motorway and just seven kilometres from Auckland's city centre, with ample free car parking and a 4.5 star 247-room hotel located on-site, the Great Northern Room is available for hire for events, functions, product launches & more.
