The original building was known as the Beach Store and
was a regular stop off for those travelling to the beach.

This was always a treat for the children where mums and dads
often stopped to purchase drinks, sweets and pies.

The well known old beach store was mostly demolished in the year 2000 and rebuilt with
extensive alterations and add on buildings to achieve the style and decor of today.

All the double hung rimu windows were once a feature of the well known
Riverton Hospital and were painstakingly restored.

Six thousand metres of nail ridden rimu sarking was turned into T & G and
turned into expansive ceilings in the dining room and bar area.

Old rimu beams were turned into those wonderful chunkier than normal doors, power pole
cross arms are now holding the bar up, plus the church pew seating and outdoor furniture.

The main building is constructed of Central Otago schist
and gives the Outpost a stylish vineyard feel.

All colours inside and out reflect the local environment. More than thirteen hundred
Natives are plated to recreate what the area would have once been like.

Inside there are four fireplaces which help create a great
atmosphere and is a must for all those rainy days.

Oh... the Cabbage Tree, being prolific years ago were locally
brewed into a concoction called Chained Lightning.

In December 2006 an indoor BBQ area was added to the function centre.
Here the chef will cook your favourite meats in front of you.
A great way to cater for large groups.

We cater for Private Functions - Weddings - Corporate Events - Seminars - Meetings.
We have six different dining areas for individual requirements
and the hall can seat up to 150 people.
