2015 Ferndale on the Hawkesbury River
Weddings and Parties
Ferndale is the perfect venue for smaller intimate weddings, parties and functions as we offer exclusive use of our comfortable accommodation in the Hawkesbury area. Our conference area is set in a bush and garden setting with magnificent views overlooking the river below. We have comfortable, well appointed, air conditioned chalets which allow your guests to relax and enjoy this special event.
For those who prefer a traditional wedding service there is an historic country church nearby. Or, if you would like to take advantage of the beautiful backdrop of the river below, you could have a celebrant marry you here. For your event we will collaborate with you to plan a menu that fits the occasion - whether it be a cocktail party, a traditional sit-down dinner or a gourmet barbecue or spit - the choice is yours.
NB It is a requirement that at least twenty (20) of the guests stay overnight.
Self Catering Group
For those wishing to bring their own food, we offer a "rent whole property" deal---(except main house). We have 7 days hire and weekend hire. It is a great idea for Xmas or family gathering parties.
Since 1990, when we were "accidentally discovered" by a dedicated group of Quilters, the word has spread that we are an ideal venue and provide great accommodation to get away from the distractions of city hustle and family commitments for a leisurely weekend of enjoying delicious food, the company of good friends and the time to concentrate on your favourite pastime.
Group bookings: Most of our craft or hobby groups organise a date suitable for all attendees and contact us to discuss availability and arrange final details – dietary requirements etc.
Individuals: All of the group organizers welcome newcomers to their groups and we can introduce you to someone in your local area who can assist with classes, purchase of materials etc if you want to join a group already booked.
Package for 2015-2016:
Price varies on the size of group. $285 PP weekend and $255 two days during weekdays-- group over 26 people

"2012 will be our third year at Ferndale. Since Kee and Chris have taken over, we noticed a lot of improvements in 2011. The conference room is much better, with new carpet and plenty of lighting. Kee and Chris are gradually renovating the cabins. The food was plentiful and excellent, and the company was, as usual, wonderful."
