Discovering RACV Healesville Country Club
Nestled among the picturesque mountains of the Yarra Valley, is the epitome of Victorian venue brilliance at RACV Healesville Country Club.
Spectacularly sited at the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, the Country Club is located in the heart of Victoria’s premier wine region, just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne’s CBD. It is a superb venue for a fairytale wedding in a beautiful country setting.
It’s through a culmination of breathtaking views, impeccable service and a local produce offering, that you will find one of the few Yarra Valley properties that can accommodate a wedding ceremony, reception, numerous photo locations and impressive on-site accommodation for your guests, all in one place.
Arriving at the manicured grounds of the Club, first impressions don’t disappoint. To the left, the rolling greens of the member’s only golf course, and to the right, the tennis courts, a bocce green and grand mountain views enough to take your breath away.
Inside, we are greeted by the warmth and peaceful ambience of the impressive surrounds. It feels as though we have landed in the most perfect country escape – a romantic European-inspired lodge that offers both privacy and an air of grandeur. The Club is accompanied by a Grand Piano, roaring open fire places and a Members’ Lounge with inviting leather couches and glorious views, the ideal place for a couple or their wedding guests to enjoy a glass of wine and grazing platter.
When it comes to weddings – those looking to experience the renowned Yarra Valley region with a point of difference, needn’t look any further than RACV Healesville Country Club.
A dedicated and undeniably passionate Wedding Coordinator, Nikita King, explains the properties offerings and we are both filled with delight and surprise.
Whilst the Club access is usually reserved for RACV Club members, the extensive function packages and opportunity to celebrate a wedding in true style, are available to all.
For those looking to be married on the terrace under the gazebo, in the private courtyard or even on the glorious greens of the golf course itself – the Club is a one-stop shop.
But it doesn’t end there.
With its impressive private ballroom with balcony access, the Club can cater for sit-down functions of up to 200 guests, all while tasting impeccable local fare and enjoying the panoramic views of Mount Riddell. For those after a more intimate affair, the property also boasts numerous function spaces for intimate wedding celebrations.
The ballroom space itself is impressive – tasteful, warm and neutral, a palette that lends itself to styling of any kind, with a private bridal suite and again, the true delight of those renowned Mountain views. The Ballroom can comfortably accommodate up to 200 guests, with ample dancefloor space and guests needn’t lift a finger – full table service is readily available.
When it comes to catering options – lead by talented local chef David Martin, what the Club team create is a true feast for the senses. Local produce, share platters, a three course menu and roaming or plated desserts – seasonal fare is aplenty and guests will be delighted by the high quality offering.
Enjoying the true RACV Country Club experience means making the most of the surrounds and taking the opportunity to stay onsite in one of their 80 well-appointed guest rooms. A top-level premium suite is available for the bride and groom, and for the larger wedding bookings – the whole site can essentially become yours for the duration of your stay.
A post-wedding celebration breakfast offering means that the guests can yet again meet to revel in the previous day’s festivities, before the newlyweds make their exit and make use of the onsite day spa.
From pre-wedding pampering for the girls, to post-wedding wind-down for the bride and groom, the One Spa is a real treat. Their day after ‘recovery package’ offers newlyweds the chance to reflect on their celebration in private, whilst enjoying massage treatments, and private spa, of course complete with champagne and sweets. The ideal curtain call on their perfect beginning to married life.
Its added options such as these, are what make the Club such an appealing choice in wedding venue, no matter which way you look at it. A weekend away, swimming pool, golf course, Billiard lounge for the boys – it’s all been carefully considered and without doubt, perfectly executed.
Their passionate staff are quite evidently connected with both the property, their stunning local area and the Club offering, and we couldn’t be more excited to share this special way to experience the Yarra Valley with our readers.
