Welcome to our new member, Bracu Estate.

Our beautiful olive grove setting – New Zealand’s largest – nestled in the sunlit Bombay hills, transports our guests to another time and place.

Whether it’s relaxing on the all-weather veranda, or beside the fire in our beautifully restyled Kauri villa, Bracu Restaurant offers a special wine and dining experience, without losing the down-to-earth touch that our locals love.

While our roots may be in great food, we’ve always been about celebrating good times. And that’s what Beretta at Bracu is all about. Laughter, banter and the occasional air rifle shot will soon fill the air as friendly competition gets underway at our activity stations. We offer single or multi-activity packages, which include clay target shooting, air rifle and air pistol shooting, knife throwing and archery, as well as wine and olive oil tasting and tours. There is no previous experience necessary; our experienced guides ensure these activities are safe, entertaining and a good laugh for all.

We’re proud to offer a space where Franklin locals and visitors alike can escape to a place that feels a world away from reality, where they can create memories with friends and family, and celebrate some of life’s most important moments in magical surrounds.
