The Setting

Narelle_Jimi_Rock_0825.jpg

Sunnystones is a 50 acre property bordering the Long Forest Nature Conservation Reserve.  We enjoy uninterrupted views of the forest, including many varieties of wildflowers, mallee trees and box gums.

 

We have a large space just down the valley from the homestead which is perfect for the ceremony and/or reception.  The setup can be customised to your liking, and vehicle access means it is possible for an array of personalised choices!

The Homestead

An architecturally designed stone building that has a large dining area suited for a formal sit down wedding or a cocktail style party. It is serviceable by our commercial kitchen, which can be utilised by caterers of your choice. The dining hall can seat up to 80 guests for a sit down meal or up to 150 for a stand-up cocktail style wedding. 

The Lawn

At the end of 2021 we had a double levelled area excavated and turfed perfect for marquee's or glamping tents! The space is 35 metres x 25 metres looking out to Mt Macedon and the Long Forest Flora and Fauna Reserve. There is also a fire pit and seats on the bottom level for a relaxing afternoon hangout.
