Discovering RACV Goldfields Resort
When pulling together your perfect day, it can often be overwhelming finding a space that will not only offer a wonderful wedding experience but also encompass the added extras and flexibility that will provide a bride and groom with the ultimate wedding experience.
Only 90 minutes from Melbourne, just 15 minutes from Ballarat, and 20 minutes from Daylesford, sits RACV Goldfields Resort, set on incredible acreage surrounded by beautiful native forest bushland.
When only the best will do, RACV Goldfields ticks the boxes in so many ways.
Pulling up to the venue we were immediately drawn to the modern architecture that is sure to impress guests upon arrival. Attentive staff on reception gave us a warm and comfortable feeling as we took in our surrounds, excited to see what lay ahead.
We met with their dedicated Events Co-ordinator who spoke passionately about her love of weddings and providing a supreme service to all clients. What immediately stood out to us is that there is no such thing as cookie cutter packages for a bride and groom. They strive to understand the needs and budgets of their clients and tailor packages accordingly. A wealth of information when it comes to the planning process, they can help source and co-ordinate suppliers, and will be by their clients side every step of the way.
RACV Goldfields Resort can cater for both indoor and outdoor ceremony options. Their Springs Terrace offers sensational views, otherwise a secluded space on the Acacia Lawn or at Hole 14 on the golf course, can also provide a sensational outdoor location. It felt like we had truly escaped the hustle and bustle of everyday life simply by taking a stroll around the grounds. Of course, no matter the weather, RACV Goldfields Resort can provide the perfect back up plan, putting any couple’s mind at ease.
Between ceremony and reception, while guests enjoy the surrounds, a couple need not go anywhere for photographs as the landscape is breathtaking. With golf buggies on hand to transport couples and their bridal parties, there are endless possibilities for fabulous backdrops. Before entering their reception, the bride and groom will then be treated to canapes and drinks in the The Fairway Bar, and then the party can officially start.

Be it an intimate setting, where you can relax with a small group of your nearest and dearest, or a large party of your favourite people, they can cater for all sized occasions with their eleven function rooms that can hold 40 to 400 guests. Their function areas provide a perfect blank canvas where a bride and groom can create any style of wedding they wish. They work closely with their couples to create a menu that complements their preferences and style. They are skilled in creating incredible cocktail menus, offering alternating courses, shared platters, grazing stations, buffets and gourmet BBQ’s with only the best produce used.

RACV Goldfields Resort is so much more than just a wedding space.
A range of accommodation options are on hand for guests that have travelled some distance, or prefer the convenience of retiring on-site after the reception. With 130 hotel rooms, your guests can join you for a post wedding breakfast (complimentary with any accommodation booking) and the rooms are perfect for unwinding. The bride and groom can stay onsite in one of their bridal suites and it’s the added extras that RACV Goldfields Resort offers (think a bottle of champagne and Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream for the newlyweds) that really add to the entire experience.
The facilities on hand are second to none and are perfect for any wedding couple and their guests.

Their onsite day spa is the perfect place for a bridal party to enjoy a selection of treatments with a glass of champagne in hand. Their highly-rated golf course enjoys the beautiful backdrop of the Creswick State Forest. They also boast a heated outdoor pool and spa, tennis court, gymnasium, walking and professionally designed mountain bike trails.
While RACV Goldfields Resort is certainly the perfect getaway, for those that live in the region, it should not be discounted as the ideal wedding venue. What stood out to us was their passion, flexibility and attention to detail. Nowhere else in this area will you find as large a function space with access to incredible onsite accommodation.
