Experience the charm of yesteryear with the modern facilities you expect in a reception venue. 

The Australian Shearing Shed, located at the Rockhampton Heritage, is a unique wedding, function and entertainment venue.

With a country-style atmosphere harking back to pioneering days, the Shearing Shed is well known for good old fashioned service and value. The Shearing Shed and the Rockhampton Heritage Village have been the venue for many weddings and receptions over the years, but it is also well known for its versatility.

With a seating capacity of up to 300 cabaret style (at tables) and up to 600 theatre style as well as a permanent stage with dressing rooms, it is the ideal place for functions, corporate breakfasts and conferences, balls, concerts, wakes and more. There is also an outdoor courtyard area and portable stage so variations of the layout can be made to suit your needs.

The Australian Shearing Shed is a fully licensed venue with a bar stocked with a wide range of beers, wines, spirits and non alcoholic beverages. If you have particular requirements for your function, let us know and we’ll do our best to stock it for you.
