Nestled along the banks of the Yarra River, with Yarra Bend Park on one side and the
Abbotsford Convent on the other, the Collingwood Children’s Farm’s 7 hectares of
beautiful farmland is a secluded world away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, but
is unbelievably only 4.5kms from the city.
The 100 year old Barn has loads of atmosphere and rustic style, and seats up to 120 or
150 cocktail style. There’s plenty of room for dancing and music on the milking floor, and
huge original stone fireplace keeps things cosy. For larger weddings and events, the
paddock is available for a marquee or tipi set up, while smaller intimate receptions are
held in the Farm Cafe.
The Farm Cafe takes care of the food and event management. They can cater for
weddings, birthdays, engagements, you name it! A special event is the perfect excuse
for a great meal, and all the food is carefully prepared from seasonal local produce and
designed to be shared, bringing people together over delicious food. Guests can help
themselves, returning to platters of slow roasted meats and hearty sides for seconds,
thirds and even fourths!
All events are set up from scratch, which provides lots of scope for personalisation and
tailoring the set up and styling to the individual. Each event has a dedicated Event
Planner to guide you through the planning process, and manage everything on the day
from the bump in of the furniture to the set up of the decorations. Events at the Farm are
as personal and unique as you are, but what they all share is a relaxed rural setting,
heaps of fun and great food.
