The most important event in a lifetime is usually said to be the wedding. Months of careful planning. Detailed decision making. Sometime quite stressful. Usually expensive for everyone – often new outfits and accessories. Guests often arriving from interstate or overseas. And then this momentous event is all over in a few hours.
Today though, many brides and their families are opting to extend the few hours of the ceremony and reception into an overnight stay together. The “after party.” Guest accommodation and breakfast that sometimes extends into a whole weekend event. Where the memorable occasion becomes even more memorable.
Close to popular reception venues
This is very true of weddings in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges which has been described as “The Wedding Capital of Victoria.” There are really quite a few reception venues in The Dandenongs but few have the capacity to provide wedding accommodation for large groups.

Our award-winning venue provides 60 ensuite guestrooms and a charming 2-bedroom, self-contained cottage with full cooking and laundry and entertaining facilities. CountryPlace offers a delicious cooked breakfast for groups of more than 15.
The location is very special. Located in the Olinda State Forest, overlooking Silvan Dam with panoramic views right down the Yarra Valley. The property offers spectacular gardens and lawns for family photos, a popular viewing deck overlooking Silvan Dam, an outdoor pool and tennis courts.
