Warrawong Woolshed

Melton

You don’t have to travel beyond the black stump to host a sophisticated soiree in a historic country venue. Warrawong, in Melton, 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.

Warrawong Shearing Shed’s historic appeal, generous dimensions, arcadian setting and proximity to the city make it a unique venue choice.

Kick-up your heels at a hoe-down: hay bales, square dancing, a hearty buffet and an authentic bush band.

Or perhaps Country Posh is more your style: a sophisticated dinner party in the landed-gentry style, with scene-stealing decor, elegant tableware, fine food, and classy entertainment.

For a party-with-a-twist, stage the most incongruously themed event for a bush shed: a corporate product launch, an evening of cocktails and jazz – the possibilities are endless!

Whether you’re planning a large-scale event or an intimate gathering of gourmands, let your imagination run wild and let ACC make it real.
