The Austinvilla Estate

story

Tracey and her husband Brad, together with her father Noel, discovered Austinvilla Estate in 2016. The property was rundown and in desperate need for some love. Despite the state of the property they fell head over heels for it’s simple elegance and spectacular hinterland backdrop.

Shortly after purchasing Austinvilla, they embarked upon a grueling schedule, fuelled by passion and dreams to salvage and restore the integrity of an iconic venue.

The Estate consists of 10 guest cottages, an award winning Regal suite, a treehouse, the main Homestead and reception venue including bar, pool room and catering kitchen, three boutique bunkhouses, conference centre, swimming pool and tennis court.

Our team is extremely proud of our sustainable living philosophy with a veggie patch, chook pen, solar panels and UV filtered tank water.

Our aim is to provide a beautiful experience for our guests’ most memorable events.
