We got married in the old wool shed for a relaxed and rustic feel and that's exactly what we got on the day. The staff are very chill and accomodating to enquiries and requests. The venue was cozy and the new fairy light really make the space. All the food was very delicious as well. We got many complements from our guests. Very happy with how our day turned out.

Fantastic venue. Such an easy flow between seating, dance floor and outdoor area. We had our ceremony and reception at Emu Bottom Homestead. We had 80 in the Homestead for the reception on two long tables. Kate and Alex were great and the organizing process was very easy. The food was delicious and there was so much of it.

The perfect wedding venue! Our event coordinator, Louise was also perfect and you could tell she knew what she was doing. We had the best feedback from the guests on the venue and we couldn’t ask for anything more!

Perfect venue for us, a hidden gem. Nice rustic and garden atmosphere, many beautiful photo locations and a perfect size for 70-100 guests. Not to mention how incredible the food was! Loved our venue
