Description of Venue: In 1869 the Scrub Hill locals commissioned a Bluestone Church forming the heart of the community.

150 years later, Scrub Hill church is restored, rejuvenated and ready for your imagination to host celebrations and events. Surrounded by rich farming land among the picturesque volcanic hills halfway between Daylesford and Ballarat in Victoria.

The space has been carefully designed to compliment and utilise the natural surroundings. The open plan Bluestone Church offers a large communal space perfect for functions and performances. The Sunday School makes for a perfect dance floor, relaxed lunch setting or casual gathering. The Lawn beside the Bluestone Church offers the perfect place to serve drinks and canapés and is ideal for sunset photos.

Types of events which are run/held: performances, exhibitions, live music, dance, cabaret, visual arts demonstrations
