Situated at the foothills of the Macedon Ranges & steeped in history, The Epicurean Emu Bottom is a heritage property set on 62 acres playing host to unique & memorable weddings...
First established in 1836, Emu Bottom is the oldest homestead in Victoria and offers a unique, heritage setting for rustic, country weddings all the while being just outside of Melbourne. Located in the centre of 62 acres of working farmlands & native Australian greenery, this iconic property is a popular choice amongst couples planning a relaxed, regional wedding.
Managed by The Epicurean Group, who are famed for Italian ‘cucina’ style cuisine – fresh, regional, seasonal and delicious produce prepared with rustic and authentic flair. Our menus marry modern Australian inspirations with bountiful Mediterranean influences. Our menu’s are sophisticated yet relaxed, designed with colourful generous share platters that get guests mingling and connecting with each other and the food.
The Epicurean Emu Bottom offers two wedding venues; The Homestead with sprawling lawns & manicured gardens suitable also for Alfresco and Marquee style weddings, as well as The Woolshed built in 1854 from rough hewn red gum slabs and features exposed timbers beams and a large stone fireplace for the cooler months.
