Small wedding location Glencara
52. Glencara Country Estate

  • Location: 706 Jerrybang Lane, Monteagle, NSW 2594
  • Capacity: 2+
  • Accommodation: Sleeps 2 + glamping/camping
  • Wedding Packages: DIY/BYO

Glencara is a brand new small wedding venue situated on 10 hectares in the Hilltops region of NSW near Young. If you're looking for a unique little venue that's well of the beaten track, the whimsical gardens surrounding and rustic maze surrounding the property's old farm house are ideal.

Due to seasonal temperatures, Glencara is best booked in the side seasons when the property is surrounded by picturesque fields of bright yellow canola in Spring and lush green wheat paddocks in Autumn. We highly recommend an outdoor wedding in the gardens but there's also a repurposed shearing shed that seats up to 120 guests that is perfectly cosy with just 20. Glamping packages are available.
