Olinda Yarra Wedding & Function Venue – Yarra Valley

Set on over a thousand acres of Yering River Flats in the Yarra Valley, Olinda Yarra’s unrivalled rustic charm will overwhelm you. Imagine your special day in our gorgeous silk lined Marquee and your reception either on the steps of the Queen Anne Homestead or between the Chilean wine palm trees.

Stunning surrounds include the historic Stables, Dairy Sheds, Silos, and the iconic Yarra Valley Railway Bridges to name a few – all making for stunningly unique photo backdrops. The 1800’s homestead is a spectacular space for weddings and events and the design depicts the era beautifully, complete with gargoyles on the roof line, love hearts etched along the verandas and ornate lead lighting windows.

Holding up to 250 guests for a cocktail style reception or up to 180 for a seated reception, your guests will love dancing the night away surrounded by rare Chilean Wine Palms, enormous Magnolia and Monkey Puzzle trees and magestic old English Oaks.

what our customers say...

"Amazing food!"

The waiters are so accommodating and were very nice to all my guests. My guests said they were so happy with the quality of food and the waiters who served them. A stand out was Caroline on my wedding day. She was so lovely and attentive! Would definitely have any event catered by them in the future

"The staff were fantastic and everything went perfectly."

Organised a morning tea for a dozen people at work with very little notice. The service was delightful & the whole experience very simple and no fuss. The food was delicious - super fresh & tasty. A great variety of yummy sandwiches and lovely pies & cakes! Will definitely use Essential Catering again should the need arise! Thanks to all concerned. Very happy customer!
