Attended a wedding here recently and most of the guests on our table were actually shocked at how bad it was...
the food was terrible. Reminded me of hospital food. I would hate to think what they paid per a head! The finger food was so poor, the gluten free option was dried up chicken on a stick that looked & tasted 10 years old. The starter dips and carrot sticks, Really?! The risotto.... so bad. The Boiled vegetables served with mains, could they have been anymore terrible? Lifeless? Just a little bit of olive oil, salt, herbs, some garnish, something on a nice platter!!
The venue itself is dated & is screaming for a makeover & so too is the food.

My sister in law recently got married here. The Reception centre and garden are beautiful. The food and service was excellent. I would recommend getting married here!

We attended our son's wedding here last week and found this location to be picture-perfect. The staff are very professional, friendly and efficient; and everything went according to plan. You definitely want to consider this location for your big day !

Attended a summer wedding at Ballara and it was lovely! The gardens are simply stunning and great for photos. The reception centre is a great size. Food was delicious and staff very friendly and helpful.

We looked at this venue for a wedding reception for our son. Although we did not choose it on this occasion, we were very impressed with the new décor and helpful staff. Overall the inclusive price per head was impressive compared to many others we considered. The venue has a chapel attached which is lovely. The gardens are fantastic for photos. The venue is well laid out. We had been to a wedding there some years ago and also a conference and the food was very good indeed.
