Behind The Brand

What was the initial spark for the property and how did it all begin?

For 30 years before we came to be The Bower Estate, we poured our time and hearts into environmental preservation and animal welfare projects. This is a passion we have passed on to our children. So, our family wanted this estate to be more than just a place for events and weddings; it’s a long term conservation project. Your celebrations help the bigger picture of this land and preserve our flora and fauna for generations to come.

What spaces do you offer for a wedding or event?

Ceremony Locations: The Bower Estate has an unlimited supply of beautiful locations for your ceremony. Our favourite spots include Hill View with panoramic mountain views, Pine Tree Forest for a woodsy and intimate setting or our Cottage Verandah for wet weather. These spots have been selected for their ambience, good lighting for photography and stunning backdrops. You are welcome to choose your own spot too.

Fairy-lit Marquee Reception: Our spectacular 18 x 10m clear fairy-lit marquee makes the perfect backdrop for your reception. Your guests will commence cocktail hour in the alfresco area on The Ridge next to our fairy-lit Fig Tree. Once the sunsets over the mountains, your guests will be welcomed into the twinkling lights of the marquee for dinner, dancing and festivities.

How many guests can you cater for?

Up to 140 guests.

What is it that makes your property magic?

The natural beauty of the property and landscapes provide the backdrop to the most scenic photos and exquisite moments. There is nothing as magical as a fairy-floss sky sunset at Bower! As well as the stunning scenery, we are the home to our resident flora and fauna, who have borne witness to the many love story that have passed through these lands.

What advice can you give couples when selecting their venue?

Start early! We suggest start your venue search no later than 18 months out from your preferred wedding date.
