Shane and i cannot thank the staff at Ballara enough. Fiona, Jan and Amanda were absolutely fabulous along with all the staff behind the scenes (special mention to Loretta). We had the best day, the food was great, the atmosphere was beautiful, everyone got up for a dance and there was plenty of laughter and smiles. The Perfect venue for our perfect day ❤❤

We can not recommend Ballara Receptions in Eltham enough. Jan, Amanda and the team were caring, professional and extremely accommodating to our needs. The venue is beautiful, the food delicious and the whole atmosphere made our special day the best of our lives. Thank you Ballara!

Ballara was amazing! It's a perfect venue for a wedding. The day went smoothly because of how organised the Ballara team was in the months prior to the day. The guests were very complimentary of the food and staff. The Ballara team made sure everybody was looked after and comfortable, that dietary requirements were met and that the children had a fun evening.

We had our wedding day at Ballara Receptions on 19/12/2019. Fiona, our function manager did an outstanding job planning the run sheet and the lead up to the wedding. She did an outstanding job on the day and Amanda, Jan, Loretta and all others involved were very helpful through the process. Ballara always made sure people were having an enjoyable time and we have heard nothing but great feedback from the wedding. Cassie has mentioned before her singing performance, entree's came out and Ballara was able to put her entree on the warmer for an extended period of time until she was ready which she appreciated. We cannot thank the staff at Ballara Receptions enough for hosting our dream wedding. We definitely recommend the venue

I can not thank the team at Ballara for everything they did for us. We felt like royalty, nothing was too much to ask, we were doted on during the day. My Husband and I live in Brisbane and the team were very accommodating to us. All guests raved about how good the food was, how beautiful the grounds where and that everything was in one spot. We loved that the package we chose included our cake and DJ. Most of our vendors were ones that the team at Ballara recommended and that saved us heaps of time trying to find reputable people. We can not fault Ballara Receptions, they made our day perfect.
