With beautiful farmland extending as far as the eye can see, Olinda Yarra Estate is a perfect venue for rustic weddings. Situated on a 150-year-old property, this stunning Yarra Valley wedding venue boasts heritage buildings, a quaint cottage, and a myriad of stunning photo locations. At Olinda Yarra Estate, you can either choose your catering or we can provide ours.

Since its humble beginnings in 1868, Olinda Yarra Estate has been transformed from 1000 acres of Yering river flats into a stunning wedding venue, complete with heritage buildings and an iconic railway bridge from yesteryear. The owners of this beautiful venue have restored these historic buildings to their former glory, and now offer them as locations for country weddings and photoshoots. Rustic and classic, these sites include the beautiful Queen Anne homestead, the dairy barn and stables, old silos and, as mentioned, the iconic railway bridges.

In terms of ceremony locations, your magical wedding can be held in many photogenic sites on the property, including on the steps of the vintage homestead, historic dairy shed chapel, stables courtyard, or your choice among acres of century-old gardens. Each site is breathtakingly beautiful, with past couples describing the options as picturesque and relaxed. Receptions at Olinda Yarra Estate are just as sightly, with the option for a hired marquee under the stars also available.

When it comes to food and beverages, owners Shelley Hughes and ‘Farmer Rob’ take great pride in their flexibility and openness. While they do have preferred catering partners, they certainly allow people to bring in their own - whether that’s a food truck, professional caterers, or pizza from down the road. Olinda Yarra Estate also has a selection of beverage packages to choose from, or you’re more than welcome to bring in your favourite drinks - merlot, prosecco, whatever that looks like!

“We had the best wedding at Olinda Yarra Estate! It’s such a relaxed venue and the gorgeous farm animals make it so special. We loved that it was private, had so many photo spots, you could stay on-site (the cottage is huge!) and the flexibility with catering and drinks. Our guests raved about the beautiful relaxed space. Thanks Shelley and Farmer Rob for your hospitality. You were so wonderful.” Rivkeh

We recently had our wedding at Olinda Yarra and i can say without any doubts that it was perfect! Shelley and the staff were very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere that was created was electric and the venue itself was beautiful and flexible for our needs for the event. Overall i would highly recommend Olinda Yarra!

We got so lucky meeting Shelley from Olinda Yarra estate, she helped us organise things on and before the big day. The location itself offered so many options! Barnyards, paddocks, old manor, and gardens. Perfect!

Olinda Yarra Estate is absolutely stunning and was the perfect place to host our wedding! Olinda Yarra was the first wedding venue we had checked out, and we instantly knew it was where we were going to get married. We fell in love with its charm and stunning grounds - from the beautiful big marquee and barn, to the magnificent scenery and homestead. All the little touches too - festoon/ fairy lights, vintage couches, florals and chandeliers, cubby bar, plus cute animals roaming around. We loved that the venue had everything we needed, but we were also able to fully customise our wedding (food trucks are amazing here). Shelley, the owner, is probably the nicest person you will ever meet, and she made the whole experience easy and stress-free. We will definitely be visiting again to stay in the gorgeous cottage, and hopefully host another event here in the future.

Shelley and the team were amazing and our day was perfect! Due to Covid we had to reschedule and were worried about restrictions, but Shelley was flexible and made sure the process was simple and stress free. The venue is beautiful, and it was difficult to choose a ceremony location as there were so many stunning options. The reception marquee was exactly as we had pictured, and allowed us to dance the night away under the stars. A big thank you to Shelley and the Olinda Yarra team, we couldn't have hoped for a better day and we highly recommend this venue!
