Our venue

Our family owned beautiful and historic property located just 15 minutes from Daylesford township is set on 127 acres and is full of surprises to inspire and delight. A perfect setting to make your celebration truly unique.

One of the great benefits of holding an event at Porcupine Ridge Estate is that you have an extensive range of options to choose from. Elegance is in abundance in 'Sunnyside' a solid 1860s' bluestone homestead with sweeping verandahs, featuring a marble floor reception entry, vaulted soaring timber ceilings, formal lounge and dining rooms separated by etched glass folding doors, massive open fire places, French doors opening to a terrace area overlooking the gardens, swimming pool, the State forest and beyond. There are many charming buildings, old stone walls, smaller and larger established garden areas with views and privacy. Take in the sweet aromas of the fragrant rose garden and honeysuckles, breath the fresh air and wander. Stunning, and yet private, secluded and intimate.

The property offers sweeping views of Mt Franklin, Mt Alexander, Glenlyon and across the Central Highlands.

Then there are the stables with its rustic opulence - a perfect blank canvas to create the barn wedding or relaxed event of your dreams, the gardens, the terraces, you will soon realise that you are spoilt for choice.

A purpose built commercial kitchen is on site as well as an industrial generator to keep our kitchen cooking and to ensure your function is not interrupted with notorious Daylesford power interruptions.
