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

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

Let creativity soar and go beyond traditional themes with your own ideas to make your function / event showcase your personality or brand identity. 

The Australian Shearing Shed at the Rockhampton Heritage Village has all the charm of yesteryear with the modern facilities you expect in a reception and function venue.

The venue is offered as a ‘dry hire’ facility where we provide the venue itself and relevant equipment, with a wide range of options, but the hirer provides their own caterer and bar staff.  

With a seating capacity of up to 350 cabaret style (at tables) and up to 600 theatre style, it is ideal for weddings, corporate functions, balls, formals, wakes and more. It offers a full commercial kitchen and bar area, ready for your preferred caterer, to create your own special event. 

In the grounds of the Heritage Village there are a number of attractive venue options including the charming St Peter’s Church and Rosewood Cottage, a variety of shaded grassed areas and memorable photographic locations.
