As a New South Wales Wedding Venue located in Metz, Macquarie Hall offers a place with character and the opportunity to realize your dreams in a large space. The mixture of industrial metals, recycled, milled and raw timbers together with the ambience of a wood fire sparks the artistic palette. From black tie to casual, vintage to chic, Echidna Gully will wear your style like a glove.
Macquarie Hall is framed by floor to ceiling windows and the view will call your guests across the Hall and out onto the veranda. Nearly everyone stops right on the edge of the veranda at the top of the stairs. It is at this point we stop talking and let people drink in the atmosphere. Whether you choose a walk down the wide timber steps, wed in the newly planted secret garden, walk slowly down the human race, or cross the bridge to begin a new life, you are spoilt for unique places to hold that special moment.
Even the weather has a back-up plan. Arrive at Echidna Gully by horse and wagon, motorcycle, vintage car or for something different land on the lawn in a helicopter. Whilst you are away with your photographer your guests may help themselves to the bespoke ice chests, be served on the veranda or visit ‘The Dingo Trap’ to choose from our favourites or your preferred selection of refreshments. As the sun slips away you can light up the night sky with some ‘Holy Smoke’ – fireworks.
When planning what to eat think about all the meals you have enjoyed subtract the ones you didn’t and you have the beginning of a Wedding Menu. You may peruse our Wedding Options, present your own for costing or bring your own Chef. Within those options you can also select from the barbecue or be served at your table. It is your day and your memories are important to us.
Music echoes through the night at Echidna Gully and you only need to plan whether you want a string quartet, where you want a band, what music the jute box will play and when it’s time to dance the night away. Replicating woolshed life, the timber floor of Macquarie Hall has rocked to the beat of all sorts of feet but never to the sound of shearing sheep.
When your feet are truly tired relax on the veranda or around the campfire and enjoy the stars. The pleasure of being immersed in a truly Australian place is a powerful experience.
