Events at The Portage

Locals night - Friday's

Every Friday from 4:00pm the Kenepuru community come down to The Portage for an evening drink and/or meal. Everyone is welcome! Drive, boat or walk. It's all about saying hello to your friends and neighbours and enjoying the beauty of the sounds together!

In the summer, locals night is held in the Snapper Bar & Eatery (December to February).

Over the colder months, you will find "the gang" in the main bar sun room enjoying our weekly dinner specials. We change things up, it could be roast night, curry or a BBQ. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for weekly special updates.
