19th century bluestone shearing shed

Eynesbury VIC 3338, Australia
Add to Compare
You don’t have to travel beyond the black stump to host a sophisticated soiree in a historic country venue. This venue is a rare 19th-Century Heritage Listed bluestone shearing shed that once serviced the major pastoral estate Exford, which, at its peak, covered over 100,000 acres. This is the closest you’ll get to bush-dance country so near to Melbourne.
Built in the mid-to-late 1850s by a notable squatter, it sits on property affording panoramic views of Werribee River, Exford Reservoir, and the Toolern Creek valley. In the early 20th Century its owners included a well-known female racing motorist – and the first Australian to compete in Monte Carlo - a world-ranking polo player, and the managing director of the Swallow and Ariel Biscuit Company.

It was such a fantastic day!!! One we will certainly never forget! You really did make our wedding such a very special occasion, and we cannot express in words how much we really appreciate everything you have done for us. The day ran so smoothly and it was just perfect in every way imaginable. The guests couldn’t stop complimenting everything from the food, the venue, the atmosphere and just the entire event, particularly the absolutely fantastic crew.
