Venue Hire

The beauty, peace and quiet of Saumarez will surround you on your special occasion.

Synonymous with grace and style, the grounds, farms and Saumarez Function Centre can accommodate groups from 60 to 1600 in a truly Australian rural setting.

You can hold your event in the Jackson Centre, a large stable and barn which can accommodate very large parties and has brick floors, power and water. Alternatively, there is the function centre, a relatively new building with a function room that can be divided in two and seats up to 95, a small modern kitchen, and a courtyard which can accommodate a small marquee and dance floor.

The gardens comprise of extensive lawns, large trees, flower beds and two large flat areas for the placement of hired marquees.
