Intro to Acre Farm & Eatery Melbourne

Located just thirty minutes east of the Melbourne CBD is the quiet suburb of Burwood, home to beautiful houses, high-end cafes and restaurants, and the popular Acre Farm & Eatery. This hidden gem is one of the suburb’s greatest treasures; an urban agricultural restaurant that serves homegrown produce and hosts stunning intimate weddings.

Acre Farm & Eatery Melbourne Wedding Ceremonies

Ceremonies at Acre Farm & Eatery enjoy the combination of rustic elegance. For outdoor ceremonies, consider an intimate gathering in the Olive Garden. Surrounded by beautiful trees, your nearest and dearest will gather in nature to watch you and your partner exchange vows under the open sky. The Acre Farm & Eatery team can plan a backup location in case of inclement weather for an additional cost.

After your ceremony is over, dash off for pictures on the farm. Stay amongst the olive trees as Acre Farm staff lead your guests to the main building for post-ceremony snacks and drinks. Then stop in at the Greenhouse for some pretty pictures amongst the hanging plants, or head to local landmarks like the Local History Park or Wurundjeri Walk.


Acre Farm & Eatery Melbourne Wedding Receptions

There are multiple reception spaces onsite, with indoor and outdoor options, so you can fully enjoy all the unique elements of this venue. The Farmhouse is the main dining space with a large high peaked ceiling that showcases a commanding view through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Natural light streams into the room, illuminating the timber beams, pendant lighting, and generous floor space. The Farmhouse can be arranged for seated or cocktail events and can accommodate a dancefloor.

Prepare to dazzle when you host your reception in the Glasshouse. This space does what it says on the label; the all-glass room glows with warm sunlight during the day and is brought to life by festoon lighting in the evening. The Glasshouse is full of lush green plants that bring a sense of intimacy and magic, and with a transparent roof you’ll be dancing under the stars well into the night.

There are several outdoor spaces where you could direct your guests, from the private balcony to the decking, pergola, plaza, or terrace. Each of these spaces can be arranged in different ways to suit different capacities, so your Acre Farm & Eatery event manager will advise how best to set them up.

Venue Testimonials

Beautiful restaurant on the rooftop with city views. The set menu was delicious too and very filling. The farm is also really nice to walk around in before dinner.

We were here on Saturday for a 60th which was also Acre's first private function and we were all extremely impressed with the venue and the service. The staff there were so helpful and lovely and the space itself was perfect. As the first function that they held they did a wonderful job. Would highly recommend.

The atmosphere had a comfortable and cosy setting. The view was good, it'll be lovelier when the plants bloom. The service was excellent and food was delicious! The olive oil they used was from Mt zero, Grampians. Very fresh. The bread homemade. The hummus was to die for.
