The Grounds

The expansive grounds at Rouse Hill offer a real ‘step back in time’ and provide a charming and historic setting for cocktail parties, lunches or dinners under a marquee. Please contact our Venue Services coordinator for more information.

The timeworn buildings, vintage farm machinery and views across the paddocks to the mountains create wonderful opportunities for photography and commercial filming.
