Wedding Ceremony

Your Ceremony

You will find yourself spoilt for choice when choosing your
ceremony location. There is no shortage of tranquil ceremony spaces to say, "I do".

From the riverside at Platypus Point with the relaxing
sounds of the mountain river, or the Majestic Gum Tree on the manicured lawns. There is also the intimate Woolshed Gardens, or the Oak Tree at Magpies Landing and the Ironbark Timber Deck catering for all weather conditions with A-line trusses and fairy lights - the choice is yours.

Our professional and passionate events team will set up your ceremony at your chosen location on the morning of your wedding.


Function Room

The "Woolshed" style function room will handle parties from 30 to 150 guests and can be decorated by us in various styles, from formal to authentic country atmosphere. This room has a large area for dancing and a stage as well.

Dinner Table


You will be delighted with the high standard of our catering. We always discuss the individual menu requirements with you and design a menu to fit your taste buds.
