Marnong Estate Mickleham Events
Marnong Estate is a historic event venue, working farm, and winery nestled atop a country hill in Victoria’s famed Macedon Ranges, just 35 minutes from Melbourne CBD. Dating back to the 1800s, Marnong Estate seamlessly juxtaposes its rich heritage and classically provincial character with an elegance born out of its event spaces’ contemporary design and state-of-the-art facilities.
Marnong Estate has three stunning event spaces: the Green Grove, a chic alfresco area enclosed by glass and lush foliage; the Angliss Room, a formal space with floor-to-ceiling windows and jaw-dropping panoramic views of the Macedon Ranges; and the Woolshed, a heritage-rated building with a predominantly rustic aesthetic paired with surprising touches of glamour. Each is as versatile as it is stylish, so there’s a suitable option for all special occasions and themes — be it a wedding, birthday, corporate event, or party. While ideal for any event, Marnong Estate is one of the finest estate wedding venues near Melbourne.
The Estate’s outdoor areas are just as striking, with rolling hills, sprawling vines, and bountiful gardens aplenty; there’s not a site on the property that doesn’t offer sensational photo opportunities. Part of what makes Marnong Estate so photogenic is its idyllic location. Humbly occupying an elevated space on a sprawling 1200-acre property on the outskirts of Mickleham, Marnong Estate boasts a breathtaking panoramic vista of the countryside — which, in particular, inspires at sunset.
This magnificent view can be seen from all event spaces on the property and is best enjoyed with a hearty meal from Marnong Estate’s award-winning catering menus. Each tempting dish is expertly prepared by talented chefs committed to crafting exceptional gastronomic experiences. From delicious shared feasts that allow guests to try a little of everything to decadent three-course meals designed for indulgence and satisfaction, Marnong Estate’s culinary offerings are like no other.

- Several inviting spaces perfect for all types of events and weddings
- Stunning panoramic views of the Macedon Ranges and sprawling vineyards
- Award-winning menus and an extensive variety of wines

What a breathtaking venue! I had the joy of having my wedding at Marnong Estate last year in December, and everything from the venue to the staff was simply amazing. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you to the team for a memorable day :) Note: the views from the venue are to die for. You can see the Macedon Ranges!

We hosted our reception in The Woolshed space as well as the new Green Grove for our ceremony. The entire day was beautiful, flawless and managed perfectly by their event coordinator and the rest of the team. A few of our guests with specific dietary requirements let us know they also had no trouble receiving their delegated meals as well, which meant a lot to us. Thankyou Marnong!
