If you are looking for a wedding venue steeped in history, then Hillstone is the perfect place for you. The venue’s story dates back to the 1880s, when a cotton farmer, William Dart, decided to a build a grand house for his wife and eight children. He named this house Hillstone—a name that continues to serve it well. In keeping with the tradition of love, the Hillstone is proud to offer couples the perfect place to secure their future together. As the largest privately-owned wedding venue in Brisbane, Hillstone has four distinct reception spaces, each with a different atmosphere.
The largest of these spaces is called the Grand View Room. Its impeccably high ceiling, detailed with stunning architraves, gives the room an air of luxury. This room is serviced by the Victorian Long Bar, and includes the Mango Tree Terrace, for those glorious warm Queensland evenings outside. You can feel the room’s rich history within its walls.
Another reception space available at the Hillstone is the Rosewood Room. With gorgeous natural timber floors, this room has the old-world charm of a Queenslander, combined with the sophisticated air of the countryside. This room is incredibly photogenic, with its Scandinavian influence and its bright and airy atmosphere. The white walls and windows complement the rustic wooden floors and will certainly complement a beautiful wedding dress and floral arrangement. If you love the classic interiors of Gustavian-era Sweden, combined with the contemporary flair of one of Brisbane’s hippest suburbs, the Rosewood Room would be perfect for you.
The Library Bar is another unique reception space offered by Hillstone. Although it comes with the Rosewood Room, this room also stands on its own, and brings to the table its own sense of sophistication. For intimate receptions, the Library Bar would make the ideal romantic venue. With its library, outdoor terrace, and granite bar, this room adds a modern twist to traditional sophistication.
Packaged with the Grandview Room and the Mango Tree Terrace, the Boardroom is Hillstone’s little secret getaway. Don’t be mistaken by its name—you won’t be doing any work while you’re here. The Boardroom is a stunning versatile space, ideal for the wedding party’s preparations, photographs, and small receptions. The space is rustic, with earthy tones and a gorgeous alcove. You’ll feel as if you’re at home—only better. This gorgeous space is the icing on the Hillstone wedding cake.
