Mawarra Functions offers a large playground for children of all ages and a small cottage for mothers with babies. Our reception hall adjoins a large outdoor deck area where guests can enjoy a drink together.

Mawarra Functions is a beautifully restored small reception venue in Melbourne. This historic bluestone building was built in 1877 and is now used for weddings, christenings and other special celebrations. Mawarra is best known for its high quality food, friendly wait staff and spacious outdoor area overlooking the Wollert countryside. We have limited dates left in 2020, so we recommend booking a minimum of 6 months in advance.

Small Reception Venue Melbourne



Our reception venue caters for up to 100 guests seated or 130 guests cocktail style. For large groups of more than 70 guests we use the alfresco area outside for dancing. 


Mawarra is a family friendly venue with large outdoor areas for the children to play. The fresh, white interior of our bluestone hall fits with any colour scheme, which is why our venue is a popular option for christenings. We recommend booking your christening about 6 months in advance to secure your event at one of Melbourne's best christening venues. Our most popular menus for christenings include our Gyros Spit Roast and Gourmet Barbeque menus.
