A collection of beautifully-maintained buildings, including the main house, lovely rustic barns and sheds, and a stunning chapel, Tocal Homestead is perfect for country-style weddings that still have the creature comforts of a modern soiree.
“As a photographer, Tocal is always one of my favourite locations to visit. Couples can have the ceremony, photos reception all on site, as well as having accommodation onsite and plenty more nearby. The grounds are gorgeous for photos and always has a beautiful angle for the sunset. The many barns, sheds verandahs provide plenty of undercover areas if it's a rainy day. Combined with the superb catering & service from the team, it's hard to find anything to complain about!” Ben H

“The wedding packages are good value for money and offer a variety of options to suit preferences and budgets. The catering by Sprout Catering is also exceptional with all our guests raving it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten! Michael is absolutely lovely. He made me and my wife, being the first same sex wedding at the Homestead, feel incredibly welcome and special. Some of my family also stayed at The Barracks and thought the service and accommodation was great.” Antonia F
