We had an amazing wedding reception at the Yarra Valley Lodge. All the staff were very helpful and having the golf buggies to drive around for photos was fun. The food was great, accommodation was excellent. Highly highly recommend it.

Yarra Valley Lodge was a perfect choice for our wedding. We were able to have the ceremony, reception and on-site accommodation (for us and all our guests), yet feel like we were in different locations. The staff were very helpful the whole way. The grounds are just beautiful.
