About This Venue

Woodburn Homestead is a stunning venue set on 42 beautiful acres and is a quintessential Australian property that inspires so many creative options. The long gum-lined driveway reveals the historic sandstone homestead, built in 1864 by Matthew Rankine (whose father, William Rankine, settled Strathalbyn). The Westphalen family recently renovated the entire property since their purchase in 2016.

The Homestead features a fully equipped country kitchen and beautiful architectural details, including a Belvedere attic, underground cellar and wrap-around veranda. There are three bathrooms, and each of the four bedrooms has a private entrance, providing accommodation for up to 10 guests. The property’s beautiful grounds feature a gloriously large 160-year-old Moreton Bay fig tree, beautiful lawned spaces and intimate garden corners, all suitable to bring your wedding vision to life.

The gorgeous open-air chapel is the icon of the property, which was saved from crumbling with authentically restored stonework and limestone crush floor. Once a barn, the thick sandstone walls provide a warm, intimate and completely unique space for your vows. The Stables, enclosed and restored with concrete floor, is an intimate function space — suitable for up to 80 guests for a seated reception. The double doors open towards the front of the property onto a lush green lawn space that adjoins the open-air chapel, perfect for a casual lounge area, delicious pre-reception cocktails or an outdoor dinner under the stars. Towards the rear of the property, the Angas Lawns is the perfect space for larger wedding celebrations. We recommend styling this space with a clear marquee, including feature floral and lighting installations as well as a dancefloor.

Woodburn Historic Homestead is an excellent venue for those that want the customised handcrafted look and flexibility without the stress. At Woodburn Homestead — you are only limited by your imagination! Wedding packages include assistance with planning, suppliers and set-up; all cutlery, crockery, glassware and bar equipment; as well as a bunch of other furniture inclusions. The property contains modern bathrooms (with disability access), parking and power to all spaces, which is hugely convenient!

Owner Cindy Westphalen is a highly awarded wedding caterer and wedding planner and brings years of experience to this property — something you can see at every corner. Cindy’s Classic Gourmet is Woodburn Homestead’s exclusive in-house caterer, run by Cindy and her highly experienced team in the large commercial kitchen.
