The room features a large fireplace, flagstone floor crafted from local sandstone, space for long table seating of up to 20 guests or standing room for an intimate cocktail party of 25-35 guests. The Stone Room leads out onto a sheltered garden terrace and outdoor lounge room around one of our signature fire pots. Guests can retreat at their leisure to the Garden Terrace for some quiet conversation and fresh air.

The Shearing Shed

This a working shearing shed that doubles as our biggest venue option. Featuring beautiful rustic huon pine boards at the entrance with double barn doors that open out onto a terrace that looks onto the barnyard and the Twamley Farm river flats. The Shearing Shed has plenty of indoor space for long table seating, catering area and dedicated bar. The outside terrace area allows for two fire pots and outdoor lounge area. This venue is ideal for simple country weddings or larger celebrations of any kind (for up to 50 guests). Venue hire from $1,000.

Oak Tree Canopy

The century old oak trees in the front garden of Twamley Farm homestead provide an ideal setting for a garden wedding ceremony or welcome drinks for any celebration. Guests can be seated or mingle underneath the canopy of these beautiful old English oak trees with views directly out over the Twamley Farm valley.

Shearers Hut

This “off grid” hut with open fireplace is ideal for small writers or artist retreats.  Nestled at the foot of Charlie’s Hill but only a short walk from the homestead, the Shearers Hut provides a peaceful and cosy space to completely switch off from the ‘real world’ and draw on your creativity.  The hut is ideal as a collaborative space for up to 6 people for a day’s retreat.

We can set up a beautiful outdoor setting in the picnic spot of your choice (weather permitting), with the option of our luxury Bell Tent as an indulgent pop-up outdoor lounge area. Gert & Ted Gourmet Catering will work with you to design a delicious outdoor feast for small groups of family and friends. Let us take you on a guided tour of our favourite picnic spots to give you some great outdoor dining ideas for your celebration.
