About This Venue

Hire a town! Joadja is a New South Wales State Heritage Listed site located in a beautiful, secluded, private valley in the Southern Highlands of NSW, only 90 minutes south of Sydney. It was the site of a Shale Mining town in the late 1800’s where hundreds of (mainly Scottish) families lived and worked from 1878 to 1911. There is a new Distillery on site and the site boasts almost 1000 acres of beautiful highland countryside, spring-fed creek with pristine water and countless historic ruins as backdrops for your photography or to have your wedding ceremony, including a majestic School of Arts building (ruin).

When you book Joadja for your event, you get the whole town privately, including the Distillery, all the historic ruins, the Orchard Managers House (extra charge) and you can even stay on site “glamping”.
