About This Venue

In 1869 the Scrub Hill locals commissioned a Bluestone Church forming the heart of the community. 150 years later, Scrub Hill church is restored, rejuvenated and ready for your imagination to host your individual day.

SCRUB HILL 1869 is surrounded by picturesque volcanic hills in rich traditional farming land halfway between Daylesford and Ballarat, Victoria.

Available exclusively — design the area to best suit your style —

Bluestone Church (70 seated / 120 standing)
Sunday School (30 seated / 80 standing)
Himalayan Tree Lawn (ceremony / party)
Sawmill Paddock (marquee or circus tent)
Pine Forrest (ceremony)

Lovingly restored to highlight the BLUESTONE CHURCH’s original features with green diamond leadlight windows which shine in the afternoon sun, glowing against the timber ceiling beams and original baltic pine floor

Once the Dean church (c1879), now the Scrub Hill SUNDAY SCHOOL, inside you can feel the country history, with the original timber tongue and groove paneled walls, narrow high arched windows and gabled ceilings

As old as the Bluestone Church, the grand HIMALAYAN TREE shades the verdant lawn encircled by the Bluestone Church and Sunday School

SAWMILL PADDOCK, an adjoining acre of land perfect for your marquee, with sensational farmland views

SCRUB HILL 1869 – a special place for your imagination – a place for you to celebrate your special day — classic, country and contemporary

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.
