The Shearing Shed


The Shearing Shed is an innovative, historic and adaptable wedding venue situated on 20 picturesque acres of farmland on the outskirt of Cowes.


A stunning space cleverly designed to offer a secret garden in the middle of the island, there are multiple winning locations on this property to make way for the most perfect I-do’s.


From The Barn, a converted hay shed with endless potential, to The Shearing Shed itself – a space rich in character and history, oozing warmth and rustic ambience – the options here are sure to delight.


The talented team are also running an incredible winter promotion for weddings held in September 2024, May 2025 and September 2025 – 20% your total costs. An offer worth considering!




While this rustic function centre requires minimal theming, amazing transformations do take place on site. Imaginative and resourceful couples are able to craft innovative concepts to enhance the space with the use of colour, texture, fabrics, lighting, candles, audiovisual technology and staging.

The Shearing Shed is one of the few amazing places where your chosen look is complemented by the venue, from the formal to the more relaxed function; the space will surprise you by its sheer versatility.

Catering options.

While this unique and wonderful venue allows for food trucks to cater on weekdays, they also have great onsite team of chefs that can cater to your culinary requirements. From the more traditional alternate drop, to the ever popular feasting and cocktail menus, there is something to suit everyone. The venue’s signature style is modern Australian, with a hint of French inspiration – delish!


While there is no onsite accommodation on offer at The Shearing Shed itself, the surrounding area is rich with places to stay and play for a couple and their guests. Phillip Island and its surrounding areas are dotted with family friendly accommodation, private homes for rent or boutique hotels.


Features and benefits.

Not only do you have access to the multiple building on site, the dedicated Shearing Shed team is there to help you through the process of organising a wedding from start to finish. They also throw in on-the-day coordination from the moment your guests set foot on the property, so you can simply arrive and enjoy yourself without having to sweat the small stuff.

Cost: The Shearing Shed wedding packages are a bit of a build-your-own adventure. Start with the hire prices, add the food options you want (or don’t – they allow food vans to cater on weekdays), add drink options (package or on consumption). Plus a whole lot more should you require.

Launching in winter of 2024, the insightful team at The Shearing Shed are offering their budget friendly bundles. From ceremony only hire to elopement and micro-wedding packages catering to up to forty guests as well as a reduced price package for their full boujee offering, we recommend moving quickly to secure one of these fantastic deals!

Size of venue: 150 people for wedding ceremony and receptions.

Indoors/outdoors: Both indoor and outdoor options are available. It’s paramount to The Shearing Shed team that you have the opportunity and flexibility to create your dream day in their stunning space.

Distance from Melbourne: 1 hour 50 minutes from Melbourne.


The Shearing Shed oozes country charm and rustic aesthetic, however it doesn’t end there. Whatever style your wedding will be, you’re only limited by your imagination.
