Indoor & Outdoor Venue

The Homestead at Eynesbury Township offers a stunning location for your wedding, whether you are looking for an indoor or outdoor venue. Its located just 40 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD and is also nestled amongst 288 hectares of gorgeous native forest.

Our event spaces include the historic Major Tom room overlooking the Eynesbury golf course and our gorgeous wedding marquee, both adjacent to the superb formal gardens and manicured grounds. The Major Tom room is steeped with grand magnificence and has been used for formal occasions since the 1870s. This room showcases immense, delicate bay windows that allow for a glorious view of the formal gardens and majestic front veranda. Our wedding marquee feels intimately connected with the surroundings and Homestead and truly captures the unique class and feel of Eynesbury. It also provides excellent flexibility concerning seating and floor plan arrangements.

The magnificent formal gardens have recently been returned to their former glory and are home to Eynesbury’s own resident peacocks. The Homestead also provides a viewing point to the beautiful, sweeping lawns and striking natural surroundings, which include elements from the Australian bush, such as majestic towering Grey Box gum trees.

Eynesbury showcases a captivating mix of the old, new, and individual, providing the perfect backdrop to create your own unique story. The Homestead’s grand front entrance, and Eynesbury`s strikingly beautiful surrounding grounds, provide a great viewing point and setting for your wedding ceremony and photos.

Top Shelf Dining

Occupying a section of the Homestead is the elegant new bar and restaurant, aptly named Ms Peacock. Our world-class head chef, Gagan Bhatnagar, (who previously served as head chef at Singapore’s famed Raffles Hotel), oversees all food for Ms Peacock along with the events for our corporate and wedding clients. Dining options are characterised by generous seasonal dishes that encapsulate true finery and flavour. The trademark style of Ms Peacock is gloriously modern international. We also advocate strongly for fresh Australian produce and high-quality ingredients.

Our food packages provide three very different serving options for you to choose from, offering you enormous flexibility. You can choose between formal, family or cocktail-style dining. A choice of delicious hot and cold dishes is provided within each package, with the added ability to further customise each menu. We also provide both classic and deluxe beverage packages, as well as a drinks menu that will captivate children.

Our optional add-ons – in most cases – can be combined with our food packages to allow you to further enhance and personalise your perfect wedding menu. Whether you’d like additional finger food, such as pre-dinner canapes, an antipasto grazing station, a memorable wedding cake service, additional beverage options, or a specialised kids’ menu – we have something special for you.

From canapés all the way through to epic sit-down banquets, Ms Peacock provides delicate culinary delights and beverages presented with the utmost class. We also offer tasting sessions at a nominal price, so you can be sure you’ve made the right choice when it comes to picking the menu for your one-of-a-kind wedding.
