About

Tucked away off Wilderness Road far beyond the stone wall, two magnificent, newly constructed black caviar barns cut a dramatic shape in 25 acres of immaculate vines, paddocks and beautifully manicured lawns. It’s no wonder this exclusive estate is known as the Dark Horse of the Hunter. With Dark Horse, you have the best of both worlds – you have your own private country estate with high end finishes more commonly found in the city.

On the property you’ll discover The Stables — a custom-built all-weather American style event venue that comfortably hosts up to 170 guests. And The Barnhouse — a homestead that sleeps six and makes a luxurious retreat and entertainment space that exudes equestrian charm.

More about the venue team

The previous owners of Dark Horse fit a magnificent job in producing the two beautiful buildings on the property. They designed such a high end result with no expense spared. In early 2021, The Orth and Beesley families proudly purchased Dark Horse.

Lara Beesley brings a huge amount of wedding and event experience through her business Honey Lane, and the Orth family has a long history in construction and property management making it a match made in heaven. They also happen to be great mates. Perfect!

We are so grateful now call
