Your Special Day

Our magnificent gardens, historic buildings and the charm of the Australian bush combine to create a picturesque venue for your wedding. Your ceremony, photographs and reception are all catered for in one location, with a variety of idyllic settings for you to choose from.

You can even choose to have our retired champion racehorses participate in different ways, adding a unique feature to your special day.

Your Ceremony

You have the choice of several sections within the Woodlands Homestead, as well as the extensive gardens surrounding the Homestead, to hold your perfect wedding ceremony.


One popular option is our Heritage Wedding Garden, located on the west side of Woodlands Homestead. This lovely lawn garden setting offers a backdrop of beautiful roses, bulbs and colourful foliage nestled between the Homestead and an old Morton Bay Fig tree.

Our entire venue is available to you to capture your perfect day. The Woodlands Homestead, the Heritage Gardens, the Historic Park and even our famed retired champion racehorses are at your disposal.


All you need to do is choose.

From the old tennis court at the front of the Homestead you can take in views to our retired champion racehorses and Mount Macedon ranges. An evening wedding reception will provide you with spectacular views to the Melbourne city lights.
