Specialising in small, intimate weddings and functions for 30 or more guests. Art Deco elegance surrounded by gardens close to Sherbrooke Forest. On-site Accommodation.

Woods Sherbrooke is a close, intimate venue located on the edge of the Sherbrooke Forest in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges.

Surrounded by century old English gardens, Woods Sherbrooke specialises in smaller weddings and private functions for 30 or more guests.  

Your ceremony can be held in the garden under the Magnolia tree or in our Parlour bar if the weather is inclement.

The dining room's Art Deco period features a large Cedar oval window offering lovely views of the gardens and creates a wonderful ambience.

A sit down reception with a 3 course menu customised by you is offered.  Alternatively a standing cocktail style reception with a selection of delicious canapes may be your preferred option.  Our pastry chef can create your wedding cake according to your style which can then be served with or as the dessert.

Several options for photographs are offered within the grounds of the property as well as in the forest and local public gardens.

On-site accommodation is available for you and/or your guests to retire to at the end of the day.

Woods Sherbrooke will create a wonderful celebration that will be remembered by you and you guests for years to come.



 “A group of us ate at Woods for a wedding dinner. The quality of the food was absolutely superb! Every meal was perfectly made, exquisite to taste. Just RAVING about the immaculate quality. Many of us, who dine quite regularly, were so impressed that we would travel from the Mornington Peninsula to return there! The staff were extremely friendly, the service and their attention to it were faultless. Thank you for a fantastic night.” — Nicole.

“Beautifully presented food in a warm and intimate atmosphere. Went here for our anniversary dinner and I was very impressed — one of the best meals out I've had in a while (and we eat out a lot). The staff are lovely too. Highly recommend!” David.


My husband and I have operated Woods Sherbrooke successfully for the past 20 years . We love hospitality and in particular, weddings where we really get to know our clients whilst we accompany them on their journey from venue selection all the way to their magic day.

This venue was perfect for the small intimate wedding we wanted. The garden and woodsy atmospheric surroundings were stunning and magical. Gill made the planning so hassle free and the food was absolutely delicious. We had to plan during the covid lockdowns and Gill was flexible and accomodating through the whole thing making the experience very relaxed and easy. Could not recommend this venue enough.

Gordon and I wanted to say a massive THANK YOU! For your professionalism on the day & the delicious food, intuitive and friendly staff. The venue was a absolutely perfect, all our friends and family were raving. And even making the cake numerous times. A garden wedding has a very relaxed and warm, genuine atmosphere. After a crazy year, we both really appreciated the care, time and attention you put into our special day. Your service staff, were impeccable. With them both formally introducing themselves to us & incredibly courteous. (They are keepers). The bartenders hindsight of ensuring my 18 year old sisters had mostly soft drink in their cocktails. Was very appreciated! You helped make our day a perfect success! Thank you again, take care and all the best.If you choose to do high tea soon, please let me know I would easily book a sitting!

Amazing, amazing, amazing. Gill was instrumental in making our reception truly memorable. The food was incredible, and had people talking for weeks. The atmosphere was perfect, and the location stunning. We could not have asked for more from a reception venue. The small, intimate size of Woods was perfect for our wedding. Gill was extremely easy to deal with, and knew precisley how everything would run on the day. She puts you at ease and makes the wedding planning process a breeze! We cannot thank you enough Gill, you made our day a very special and memorable one!
