About This Venue

In 1869 the Scrub Hill community built a Bluestone Church.
Divinely restored Scrub Hill 1869 remains a place of celebration.

Celebrate in our restored former 19th century Bluestone Country Church and lawns.
Spectacular weddings, hip parties, corporate collectives, beautiful funerals and creative workshops are all reasons to gather in our divinely charming spaces.

Set on 2 acres and surrounded by rich farming land among the picturesque volcanic hills halfway between Daylesford and Ballarat in Victoria. We offer exclusive access to the entire property to personalise the spaces in your style, for the perfect country wedding celebration.

Owner / Manager

After many years in Melbourne, managing a private hospitality group and owning graphic design businesses – it was time to enjoy a restorative life.

Living locally in Daylesford, we had always admired the beautiful Church surrounded by traditional farmland, never dreaming we’d ever own it. When we bought Scrub Hill we had no idea we had also bought into a fabulous local community.

Our dream was to make the Church happy again and after a year long loved restoration, SCRUB HILL 1869 is happy, and ready again for celebrations and events.

We are happy to work with you and introduce you to the many talented local providers and operators, or you may prefer full creative direction. Either way – SCRUB HILL 1869 is ready for your imagination.
