Yen and MichaelFebruary 2020

“You have such a special venue and the way you love the plants and animals around you also means so much. The Barn, Marquee, palm trees, Cottage, furniture, photo opportunities and sunset is just a Dream.

We had the best day EVER and it really was a glimpse of heaven. Thank you to Olinda Yarra Estate, the staff and all the other vendors. We are thankful and feel so blessed.

Shelley and Farmer Rob, you guys are stars! We will definitely be sharing your venue to others for the rest of our lives.”

Anthony and BecFebruary 2020

“Olinda Yarra Estate is a stunning location for a wedding in the wet or dry. We had an extremely wet start to our day but we managed to stay dry due to the facilities, and a number of guests commented on how amazing the venue was. Shelley was a pleasure to deal with and was always there to answer any questions we had during organising our wedding.

We could not recommend Olinda Yarra Estate more and hope to attend another event there in the future.”

Ashley and ChrisNovember 2019

“We fell in love with Olinda Yarra Estate on our first visit, immediately booking our stunning wedding. The grounds are absolutely stunning with the beautiful homestead, the barn, the cottage, the old silos, marquee and lush gardens. Shelley and the team were great to work with, very thorough and friendly.

Our wedding and reception were absolutely perfect, the best day of our lives. The photos are all amazing with such scenic backdrops everywhere on the farm.

Staying in the Cottage was a perfect way to end the night after such a busy wedding day. Its so spacious, set up beautifully and they’ve thought of everything you could possibly need. We’ll definitely be coming back to celebrate our anniversaries. Thank you so much!”

Felicity and ToddFebruary 2019

“We had our wedding at Olinda Yarra Estate on the 23rd February 2019 and it was nothing short of amazing. Shelley and Farmer Rob ensured we were comfortable the whole night, making sure everything was perfect. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted with the little touches that they added to the venue and setup, everything just fell into place. The planning process ran so smoothly with Shelley organising and helping so much.

I highly recommend Olinda Yarra Estate. If we could go back and have the whole night again, we wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you so much for a perfect day and night.”

There was so much space for games and everyone loved patting the animals. The marquee was ideal for our large number of guests and the setting made it an amazing farm friendly experience.
