About This Venue
Barwon Park, built in 1871 for Thomas and Elizabeth Austin is a majestic 42 room bluestone mansion and stables set in a sweeping rural landscape.
This majestic 42-room bluestone mansion and stables is largely in its original condition, resonating with the glory of Victoria’s pastoral heritage. The property has been owned by only two families, the Austin’s and the Batson’s, and was left to the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) by Sydney Batson.
This magnificent venue hosts a number of stunning areas for a range of functions. The grand entrance hall and central staircase are backed by colourful stain-glass windows which provides a majestic and romantic location for wedding ceremonies. The spacious courtyard can be transformed into a beautiful reception room for wedding receptions or corporate functions whilst the Dining Room provides a magnificent space for more intimate functions. The grounds and gardens also provide ample opportunities for outdoor weddings, functions and events.
