A special weekend with guest speaker, The Honourable Christopher Finlayson, QC
sharing anecdotes from his new book


Enjoy a spring weekend at Kauri Cliffs, when author and politician delivers an insightful and entertaining talk on his years as senior minister in the John Key led National government. 

Finlayson was in "the room where it happened" during one of the most successful conservative governments New Zealand has ever seen, and his insights into some of the major issues of his topical portfolios are sure to be fascinating.

Told with his trademark good humour and wit, Chris’ talk promises to be thoroughly entertaining and perceptive, and an insightful overview of conservative politics in New Zealand.

Saturday provides ample time to enjoy all a Robertson Lodges’ stay has to offer, Christopher is a keen golfer and will be teeing off, for anyone keen to join his foursome?  It’s been said that the best stories are heard on the golf course! 

The day will be capped off by a Saturday night pre-dinner talk and a sublime tasting menu dinner. Plenty of food for thought to anyone with an interest in New Zealand politics and good living!

The weekend is presented at no additional cost to the lodges’ seasonal tariffs.
