NEW VENUE ALERT!: This beauty opened in September 2013 - We fell in love the minute we came across Orchard Keepers, "nestled between the vines and orchards" and even more in love after chatting with Poss, the owner. She emailed us back straight away and couldn't have been more excited to share the scoop on this property that she herself has lovingly restored. When our team of reporters chats with venue owners who are both pleasant and passionate, we automatically know that throwing an event here will be a breeze. With over 40 years of event planning under our belts, we know how important the venue is, but even more importantly are the people behind the venue.
HISTORY LESSON: Under the shade of a giant Sequoia tree (an extremely rare tree in Australia that was brought over on a boat from the US as a seedling) and amongst beautiful gardens you will find Orchard Keepers. This family establishment is surrounded by neighboring vineyards and orchards. Poss will happily greet you and open her cottage doors where you will be invited to enjoy three historic cottages and 10 acres in the heart of Red Hill. The cottages date back to the late 1890’s and providing the perfect “rustic – luxury” accommodations.
HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE?: Orchard Keepers can be found at 17 Paringa Road Red Hill South on the Mornington Peninsula: 50 minutes away from Melbourne CBD 90 minutes from Melbourne Domestic & International Airport. The property is easily reached along either the Eastern Freeway & Peninsula Link or the scenic coastal road hugging Port Phillip Bay
