The Venue

Main Entrance, Cellar Door & Courtyard

From the main road take your coach up the sweeping driveway past waterways and wildlife to the schist stone grand entrance way. Walk through the foyer and our cellar door into the courtyard for pre dinner canapés, drinks and garden entertainment. The courtyard is compatible with a full marquee for extended coverage.

Great Hall

The long banquet hall of 250 m2 offers great space for staging and themed decor within the high eight meter ceiling. Lighting and audio control is mastered from the mezzanine above. Welcome or Gala Dinners with the WOW factor are perfected within our stunning building and surrounding landscape. 

Winery Restaurant & Dance Room

The Winery Restaurant opens out onto the courtyard, creating a wonderful indoor/outdoor feel. Heated with a large central fireplace, relaxing decor welcomes your guests in all weather for pre-dinner comfort. Or, the space transforms as an intimate after dinner lounge for dancing and drinks to make for a perfect end of the evening retreat.
