Weddings & Group Bookings


We treat any wedding as a great honour to host. Ratho Farm’s first wedding was 187 years ago, in 1829.

Since we opened the doors to the public in late 2014 we’ve enjoyed having many diverse and well received gatherings of friends and family over a memorable three day getaway. We say diverse because the weddings have chosen one of several different ceremony locales at Ratho Farm:

  • Under the giant Oak Tree;
  • Beside the river Clyde; or
  • On the footsteps of the Convict Cottages.

The weddings to date have had quite a distinct format for the reception:

  • From a Garden Cocktail Party;
  • A formal sit-down in our Atrium; and
  • Even a long table lunch on the homestead verandah.

Ratho Farm really is where you can let your creative imagination run wild to present your very own unique celebration!

We encourage our weddings to make full use of the property, and believe that going away for a wedding as a group ensures the event is not just another diary note, but is in itself an unforgettable series of refreshing events and lasting memories for everyone.


Venue Hire

The fee to use our property for your wedding is $1,500. We waive this if you book all 17 bedrooms in the convict cottages for at least 2 nights’ accommodation during your wedding (at $2,975 per night).

If your wedding is in our peak months of January, February or March we charge an additional $1,500 for venue hire (this is not waived even if you book 2 or more nights’ accommodation with us).

We encourage you to come up and visit Ratho Farm, stay a night on us (accommodation is at no charge, only pay for your dinner and drinks). To book your complimentary evening please call us on 03 6259 5553 or email to confirm availability. We appreciate as much notice as possible.
