Dating back to the 1800's, Ratho Farm stands as one of Tasmania's most loved historic venues. With many picture-perfect spaces, from the giant oak tree to the modern atrium, your free reign is limited only by your creativity

Since we opened the doors to the public in late 2014 we’ve enjoyed having many diverse and well received gatherings of friends and family over a memorable three day getaway.

We say diverse because the weddings have chosen one of several different ceremony locales at Ratho Farm:
- Under the giant Oak Tree
- Beside the river Clyde
- or On the footsteps of the Convict Cottages.

The weddings to date have had quite a distinct format for the reception:
- From a Garden Cocktail Party in a Marquee 50-150 guests
- A formal sit-down in our Atrium for up to 72 guests

- The old barn for up to 80 guests
- A long table lunch on the homestead verandah up to 30 guests

Ratho Farm really is where you can let your creative imagination run wild to present your very own unique celebration!

Such a beautiful location and wherever you want the ceremony, they will set it up. It was extremely difficult to chose where to have it! We decided on having it at the front steps of the homestead. The reception was held in the atrium and every angle in there is beautiful. It was great to have everything at one location from waking up in the morning, getting ready, the ceremony, the group photos, the bridal party photos and the reception. We were able to make the most of the day without wasting it on travel.

We booked the whole farm for our families to stay for 3 nights and had our wedding on the second day. It is such a beautiful place and the rooms are exquisite. We had free reign of the the farm and the staff were wonderful. Everyone enjoyed their time and it was a great way to have quality time as a family, celebrating this happy event in our lives.

Ratho Farm was a beautiful location for our wedding. We made a weekend event out of it for our families and loved it. Lots on offer and Ratho Farm staff were amazing.

Booked the entire farm for the weekend. The barn is an amazing venue for a sit down feast, the creek was beautiful for the ceremony and we used the atrium for breakfast! It is so good having so many guests stay on site - it makes the event go so much longer and it's a beautiful farm with easy going staff.
