The perfect venue for our wedding - outdoors, relaxed and in the heart of the city! Special thanks to Maya our event coordinator who brought our vision to life!

Our wedding at The Farm Cafe was just perfect! The venue is so beautiful and has a lovely relaxed rustic feel. Our event coordinator Amelia was so easy to communicate with during the wedding planning and made everything run smoothly on the day. The food was outstanding. Couldn't recommend more!

We loved our wedding by the Farm Cafe! The entire team was so professional, caring and talented. The food was incredible and an absolute highlight – our guests are still raving about it weeks later. We’re biased, but it was the best wedding we’ve ever been to! We recommend them without hesitation.

We picked the Collingwood Childrens' Farm because we were looking for something that was relaxed and had a mix of both outdoor and indoor options. We are so glad we decided to book this venue - we booked the Paddock for our ceremony and the Barn for our reception. From our initial viewing with Laura, to then working with Cat and Georgia who was our event co-ordinator on the day we felt supported and listened to the whole way through. They were super accomodating for all our requests and really helped make the whole day feel special and uniquely ours. Georgia did a fantastic job co-ordinating with all our other suppliers - it all turned out absolutely perfectly. All our guest commented that the food was the best wedding food that they have ever had. The vibe of the day was exactly what we were hoping for!

The best venue. Hands down. The team there was amazing, lovely and super accommodating! It was like whatever we wanted (within reason) was met and it exceeded my expectations. My in-laws were not super impressed with the venue but my husband and I fell in love with it the moment we visited the place. Plenty of lovely places for pictures and the grand oak tree was just amazing. To get married under this old, old tree was memorable.

The farm offered a beautiful backdrop for part 1 of our wedding reception, and our guests really enjoyed being able to explore the gardens, the barn, etc. of the farm. There were also guinea pig cuddles for kids! To note, we did not directly deal with the farm; all our dealing were via the Farm Cafe, who we found were the best point of contact.

We had an event planner who looked after everything. Great communication and quick responses if there was anything we needed followed up. Everything was so smooth and we didn't want too much fuss so we were able to leave everything to them. I could see the event planner on the day and she was running around for us so that was great for us to see they cared.

The Farm Cafe at the Collingwood Childrens' Farm exceeded all our expectations. The wedding and hospitality team were phenomenal and made us feel so special from start to finish. Our family and friends were delighted with everything and we welcomed so personally and authentically by the Farm team. If you are looking for a special venue with genuine service, no fuss, generous beautiful food and superb value for money, this is it!

They were so good and they really let us be ourselves. They pulled through for us and made the whole day so amazing, even though we felt so scattered in ourselves with our planning. They took care of everything! The food was amazing and I would highly recommend.

The Farm Café at the Collingwood Children's Farm is such a beautiful setting and we are so happy to have chosen it for our wedding venue. The relaxed, rustic and earthy nature of the venue takes you away from everything. It felt so much more intimate and beautiful.

Wonderful venue, but very 'bare' unless the Farm Cafe cater. We didn't mind this because it meant we could create a very unique wedding there... Andrew (who works at the farm) absolutely made the event for us, no request was too big or random, we love Andrew! <3

Venue suited our requirements perfectly and staff were all so attentive. Special mention to Jess who planned it all.
