Royal Mail Event Centre

The contemporary, architecturally designed Event Centre provides for a spectacular venue for corporate meetings and conferences. Accommodating up to 150 seated guests, the flexible design can be configured to suit nearly any requirement. Designed by Barack Douglas and Coy of Melbourne, the unique venue is beautifully located in the landscaped native gardens surrounding the hotel and takes advantage of the stunning natural surrounds. An entire wall of floor to ceiling windows leads out to wide verandas and gives prominence to the natural light and the sweeping panoramic views of the Southern Grampians.   


At the historic Mt Sturgeon Homestead luxury and pastoral character go hand in hand to create an elegant rural retreat. Adorned with period furnishings and fine colonial artwork, the refined grace and style of the 1800s sandstone and bluestone homestead, once home to the Armytage family of Como House, Melbourne, provides a warm welcome into Australia's rich colonial past. Set on 70 acres of manicured lawns and gardens, a circular drive brings guests to the grand entrance of the beautifully restored and refurbished homestead. From the wide timber veranda, framed by restored wrought iron lacework, guests can enjoy the panoramic views of the Grampians and lawns, which lead down to the Wannon River, gardens and historic fruit orchard. This exclusive residence provides accommodation for up 12 guests, formal dining and lounge rooms, fully equipped kitchen with informal dining room, sitting room, laundry, four bathrooms, central heating, private drive, a tended vegetable garden and outdoor seating. The homestead provides the perfect base for walks into the Grampians National Park and is perfect for corporate getaways and retreats.
