About This Venue

Butterland was built in 1904 in the Victorian gold rush township of Newstead which is ideally located 16kms from Castlemaine and 37kms from Daylesford. The Butter Factory operated as a successful dairy until 1975. In the early 80’s it became a candle factory and manufacturing continued until 2009. Furniture maker Greg Hatton and florist Katie Marx took possession of the site in January 2010. Since then major works have been undertaken to restore the building to its original condition and give it new life, making the property a unique place to get married. As of 2013 the building has been heritage listed.

Butterland’s various incarnations have contributed to its historic charm. A red brick exterior, towering chimney stack and original front signage are all features that have been lovingly restored and brought back to their former glory. On entry, the post industrial interior features high ceilings, original hexagonal tiled floors, fireplaces and huge windows which allow the rooms to be filled with natural light.

The surrounding grounds are also incredibly picturesque, set on an acre of land with several veggie patches, plenty of fruit trees and a spacious lawn area, creating several options for ceremony spots. Features such as a concrete pool in an old sump tank and a disused railway line that runs along the back of the property add to its character. Butterland is surrounded by iconic Australian bushland and boasts sweeping views through the eucalypts. A spectacular westerly aspect sees the sun set through the gums on the horizon. All adding to the many photo opportunities for newly married couples and their guests.

Beautiful handmade native timber tables, vintage chairs (for ceremony and dining ) along with numerous other props are all included in the hire fee.
