About This Venue
Wirraway Park offers a unique country setting to host your wedding. It is situated on a working Horse Stud, 15 minutes out of Bathurst in the Central West of NSW 3.5 hours west of the Sydney CBD.
The Sails Arena on site is the perfect place for a reception. Spanning 60 x 18 metres, you can have all your reception requirements under the one roof – seating, dance floor, caravan bar, band, break out space and photobooth. The Sails Arena is the only one of its kind in Australia and is wet weather-proof. The sail is also large enough to place a marquee underneath if desired, in case of windy weather and the arena ground is flat and well made but with a sand base. This could be covered with fake turf or a portable dance floor to some of the area.
Wirraway Park is surrounded by undulating country with pockets of native areas and some deciduous trees as well. There are many beautiful spots on the property that would be perfect for wedding ceremonies, with horses around if desired too.
There are bathroom facilities only metres away from the arena, suited for up to 60 people. If more it is suggested that port-a-loo’s from Bathurst can be hired for an extra cost. There is also a separate building which houses kitchen amenities.
There is currently no power to the arena area but a (quiet) commercial grade generator can be hired for 24hrs as all the electrical is in place. 24hr hire is included in the Venue price. Longer will be an extra cost.
The whole property is easily accessed in all weather conditions and there is plenty of room for parking or buses. A mini bus can collect and take people back to their accommodation in Bathurst.
Wirraway Park is a truly unique country venue unlike any you will find – private yet so close to town.
Sept. 2018 – Sadly like many rural properties in NSW we too have been vastly affected by drought and continue to be. Many of our beautiful horses have had to be moved on to other caring homes. As the lack of pasture and the horrendous price of hay when it can be sourced is still quadruple the price it should be. The horses that are now remaining are the very core of my original stud. But the past 18 months has been extremely heart breaking. I feel that by diversifying our income potential with the farm, here on WedShed, it will hopefully help us ride out the next 12/18 months ahead, and retain the horses we still have. By selecting Wirraway Park for your event, you will be truly helping us into the future as well as having a unique experience to take away with you.

Owner / Manager
I have been an artist all my life and a horse person most of my life! I have over 40 years experience with horses. Wirraway Park is a working Horse stud for Waler horses and now a premium Horse Agistment property too. I also have unique life size horse sculptures that can be hired if desired .
I moved to Wirraway Park in October 2015 after looking for a property to move my horse stud too, for many years. It is a beautiful property offering pasture and bush and privacy, yet close proximity to town. I love it.
I spend my days working the horses and the farm and some days with my art. I also have a hospitality background and thought that this property could make a great wedding venue. I have experience in catering for weddings and have been commissioned for unique wedding cakes as well. But I am open to have catering brought in if you just wish to hire the venue. Everything is always open for discussion.
There is also the opportunity for horses to be more involved with your wedding day if desired. This property is rather unique as I looked at many before this. I would love to be able to share it with you on such a meaningful day in your lives.
