Vine Cottage and its surrounding grounds is a beautiful, quaint and private location perfect for an intimate garden wedding or function.
Nestled deep in the heart of Castlereagh, part of the picturesque Macquarie Five Towns, Vine Cottage is part of the beautiful Munbilla Victorian property that was laboriously constructed over the past three decades by the Museum’s curator, Bob Dennis. Originally an orchard farm at the turn of the 20th Century, the five acre property has been developed into a wonderful homestead built with authentic convict brick and stone.
Feel as though you are taking a step back in time, yet with the modern comforts to make your day memorable. Vine Cottage Events only holds one event at a time to ensure all our focus is on your special event, this includes use of the grounds for wedding photos which can be taken at your leisure throughout the function. Vine Cottage and its accompanying blacksmith’s workshop holds a wonderful display of antique tools, offering a great back drop for photos and a point of interest for your guests to have a look through.
The stunning cast iron gazebo is a more recent addition to the property, it stands on a intricate sandstone floor and is the perfect spot for the happy couple to exchange their vows.
