Built in 1902 and retaining many of its original architectural features, The Gables garden was originally designed in 1902 by William Guilfoyle, the landscaper who designed the Royal Botanical Gardens. The Gardens today are simply magnificent and include a rose covered gazebo perfect for gardens ceremonies. The Gables is renowned as one of Melbourne's finest venues for weddings and corporate events.

Boasting traditionally decorated rooms with crystal chandeliers, a lead light conservatory, parquetry floorings, sixteen foot ceilings, a sweeping staircase and open fireplaces, The Gables is a popular destination for elegant functions, parties, and events.

The Gables is centrally located in a beautiful grandeur Victorian Estate on a tree-lined street to provide you with the perfect atmosphere to celebrate your most memorable day or event. A generous verandah overlooking the magnificent gardens, makes this a delightful place for your guests to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and canapés. Nestled amongst the trees, is a gazebo covered in climbing roses; the perfect setting for a garden ceremony. With exclusive use of the house, garden and off street parking, we host only one wedding at a time. Catering for up to 120 guests seated or 250 guests in cocktail-style.

Whether your preference is a formal lunch or dinner, cocktail party or even the award-winning high tea, The Gables has a professional and dedicated events team offering a personalised service in a truly grand and romantic environment.
