I think Graham L in a previous review summed it up nicely. Very much below average accommodation and would I stay there again....NO. We also attended a wedding ( not sure if the same one !! ) and three tables were very late getting their Chicken main meal. When it arrived we found the chicken was not cooked in the...

Room 6. I was in the single bed and found the bed a bit hard. At night there was not nough ligheing to find your way to the room. Venue is realy lovely. Main building not flash (just how I like it.). Their focus on supporting charities and being carbon neutral was inspiring. Some facilities needed fixing or alternatives made.

I attended a wedding at Yarra Valley Estate last weekend and have very conflicting opinions of the function centre versus the accommodation facilities. The name of the property could suggest that it is a winery but this is not the case. It is located in a wine region but the property is not a winery, does not grow grapes nor...

Went there a couple of weeks ago for a group love-in. It is ideally located in the Yarra Valley with easy reach of many nice destinations such as the Yarra Glen, Healsville, and many wineries. The property is arguably more suited for group activities such as couple of families holidaying together or conferences. The rooms are relatively basic but the...

We attended a wedding in August, 2015 which was good in that all the guests could be accommodated within the complex. There was a large common room where people could self cater and relax which was also good. Parking was not close to the accommodation and was difficult to transfer luggage.

We had a delicious lunch in front of the fireplace at this estate. The atmosphere is serene and relaxed with beautiful big windows taking in the surrounds. The staff are extremely friendly. Proceeds from the venue go towards medical care in an isolated region of Papua New Guinea. Highly recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We're a bit unique at the Yarra Valley Estate because as well as hosting conferences, we are popular with family groups coming away for a few days (family reunions, special birthday celebrations, etc), special interest groups (nature lovers, bush walkers, car enthusiasts etc), and host gorgeous weddings (as we are situated on 120 stunning acres of lawns, bush tracks, towering gums and native bush). We're also unique in that we have our own airstrip - so people can fly in to our property in just 10 minutes from Melbourne. Plus we have our own Wildlife Rescue Sanctuary, Babbajin Park, where rescued animals are brought in by the public, to be rehabilitated - and it's only open (by appointment) to guests staying with us. We are family owned and run and husband and wife team John & Louise Ward go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful stay. They are closely connected with three charitable organisations, which they support financially with profits from Yarra Valley Estate. Please call us with any enquiries - and we look forward to welcoming you soon to stay with us here in the Yarra Valley. ... more   less
