We had our wedding in April 2022 and the girls at the shearing shed were amazing! Helped us get everything perfect for our special day, answering the countless questions we had and accommodated all of our request. The day went perfectly, couldn’t have asked for anything more. And the food was to die for! All of our guested raved about the food

Couldn’t recommend this venue enough! Abbie and Kaylah were always quick to respond to emails and reassured us that everything will work out perfectly.. and it did! We had the most magical day! This venue is a place where the sky is the limit, you can create your perfect day, whatever that may look like. All our guests raved about the food and set of up the venue. If you are looking for a venue that you can have the ceremony, have amazing photos and reception in the one place - this is it! We also had to change our wedding date 3 times due to covid and we wouldn’t of trusted any other venue to take care of us the way it the team at the shearing shed did! Highly recommend!

The Shearing Shed is an amazing venue to have your wedding. We chose the outdoor ceremony but unfortunately it was raining the whole day and Abbie and the team made sure we still get to have the best time by helping us move it to the barn. The feel and look of the place is amazing, Food tastes divine- everyone is raving about it! Service is fantastic. Thanks Abbie Thea & Michael

The Shearing Shed was an amazing venue. They were able to cater for my large family (140 guests) for both ceremony and reception. The food and service were incredible and felt so comfortable during the whole planning process. Their communication was prompt and put my anxiety at ease

Our reception was absolutely beautiful! Abbey was beyond helpful with us and let us enter the venue a day early to set up which took a lot of stress off our hands which was great. The food was amazing, all our guests were raving about it.

Could not thank Abbie enough for all her help before the wedding and especially on the day. The day was perfect! Wonderful rustic venue with a touch of class that suited both Kevin and my personalities. The food was spectacular, and everyone commented that it was the best food that they have ever eaten at a wedding before, expecially the people with dietary requirements! Abbie allowed us plently of time to set up the venue to make sure it was perfect. And was very prompt to answer any questions by emails and phone calls. Thankyou to Abbie and all the staff at the shearing shed, Kevin and I cannot thankyou enough for the most amazing day of our lives! You made evetything run so smoothly and all we keep hearing from guests is what a wonderful time they had.

The Shearing Shed is based in Cowes, Victoria and is an absolute stunning venue. We got married at their Billabong and then had the ceremony in the old Shearing Shed that has now been converted into a restaurant. The food was amazing, and staff were incredible!
