This private facility has never before been made available to the public and has now opened its gates for weddings.
From the moment you rumble in over the grid you can almost feel the history and decades of hard work that have shaped Mt Beare Station into what it is today, a character-filled property.
This authentic working sheep station is 50 minutes from the CBD or a short drive from McLaren Vale. Set on 500 acres of private and secluded valley with nothing but country views as far as the eye can see, this is a venue that has space in spades.
You are welcome to use any of the multiple ceremony locations on offer, but here’s our hot tip: our favourite is lakeside – a large lawned area with a beautiful willow tree and the water as the backdrop.
No need for marquees here – their enormous iconic Australian wool shed with 100 years of character can seat up to 180 people, or up to 250 standing for a cocktail reception. The shed has been lovingly refurbished with high quality finishes, luxury touches and lots of little details including beautiful lighting fixtures and sound system. With a massive 10x10m dance floor centred within the huge wool shed, this space will literally be the heart of the party. There is also a staging area for a live band, string quartet or DJ adjacent to the dance floor.
Your guests can spill out into the open alfresco terrace with its fairy light canopy and beautiful views overlooking the water and valley beyond. For another cosier outdoor option, perhaps for a winter wedding, there is a sheltered farriers stable with large fire pit to keep hands and hearts warm.
Mt Beare Station is a fully flexible dry hire space allowing you to bring in your own beverages and catering. Full kitchen facilities are located within the Blacksmith shop; even the caterers get to have fun!
Included in the hire are custom made timber tables, ceremony chairs, plates and glasses. There is a bathroom and a fully provisioned space for additional bathrooms to be placed with powder room access, as well as abundant space for bus and car parking. In fact, there’s so much room you can easily arrive via helicopter from your McLaren Vale BnB.
Finally, there is one other thing we must mention for you party-lovers, Mt Beare has the additional option of a late curfew up to 2am (on application). Say what?!
It almost goes without saying, Mt Beare Station gives you the space and freedom as well as the time to have your day just the way you want it.
Take the backroad. Trust us, you won’t regret it ❤️
