TOTARA ST is a multi-functional entertainment venue located in the heart of Mount Maunganui. The beauty of the space is the ability to host an array of different functions and events, while supporting a wide variety of music, culture and entertainment within our community.
Since swinging the doors for the first time in 2015 the management crew and staff have been on a steep learning curve figuring out what it takes to run a successful event centre in Mount Maunganui. We believe that having TOTARA ST as the performance space for the Mauao Performing Arts Centre creates an environment that can enhance and at the same time entertain the wider community. We are proud of the fact that the students that learn in the front of the building get to come out the back and play on the same stage and rig as national and international touring acts.
Equipped with a Martin Audio sound system, solid in house lighting rig, two licensed bars, mezzanine floor, commercial kitchen and excellent sight lines to the stage. TOTARA ST is the Bay of Plenty’s premier live music and entertainment facility. Combine the aforementioned with a dedicated and passionate events team and the possibilities are endless...
