There are those special occasions in life that just have to be perfect. Be it a wedding or extraordinary event, the right venue is essential and Banyandah Homestead is that right venue.
Set in a private, breathtakingly beautiful location, with rolling hills, a magnificent private lake and the natural beauty of Central Victoria, Banyandah Homestead manages to combine simplicity, charm, ultimate privacy with a sophisticated atmosphere.
It didn’t happen overnight. Sue and Peter Quinlan, owners of Banyandah had a dream, a dream that developed over many decades. The family has always lived in the area of Wattle Flat and enjoyed the normal country pursuits of driving paddock bombs, early mornings feeding calves before school and swimming and fishing in their own lake. When their four children grew up, Sue and Peter moved away to pursue other business ventures, but their hearts always went back to where they truly felt at home and where their dream began.
It took some time, but they eventually managed to purchase the land where Banyandah sits today. It had been left untouched except for grazing cattle and sheep. They then set about building the amazing property that it is today.
Sue says, “We feel very honoured to be able to share Banyandah Homestead with some very special people on their most important day. We can finally see and share our vision being fulfilled and we feel so proud”
However, a special event is more than just a venue, it’s more than beautiful surroundings – it’s the attention to detail and the love that Sue – very much a people person – invests in each and every function. It’s also flexibility. Sue and Peter encourage clients to view the property to see for themselves how the magnificent grounds can be transformed into whatever they desire.
The name Banyandah is an aboriginal word for ‘home on the water’ giving even greater meaning to the lake that is a magnificent backdrop for any function.
Venues of this calibre simply do not present themselves every day. Until now, Banyandah Homestead has been one of Central Victoria’s best kept secrets – but not anymore.
