Folklore has it that when King Arthur was fatally wounded, he was taken by boat to the island of Avalon, where he was cared for by beautiful young women. There he spent his last days and the legend ends.
At Avalon Castle, the legend continues. Whether you are searching for Medieval Splendour or Traditional Romance, Avalon Castle is the ideal setting for your fairytale wedding. It offers a beautiful and recently enlarged chapel complete with stained glass windows, wood paneling decorated with Flemish tapestries and traditional wooden pews that can now accommodate up to 120 people. Avalon Castle boasts some spectacular summer gardens for those wishing to exchange theirs vows in the glory of nature or they can be used as a backdrop for your wedding photographs.
|The Banquet Hall with Minstrel's gallery allows you and your guests to enjoy a sumptuous meal fit for a king in great comfort. Look at our Menu page for more information about the delectable dishes we can arrange for you. You can enjoy a night of feasting, dancing and merrymaking to the tunes of your hired minstrels or those that we can provide for you. After a day of excitement and wonder, you may be tempted to start your new life by spending the night in the cosy intimacy of the Castle Cottage - provided on a complimentary basis (including Continental breakfast and champagne) for brides and grooms.|
|Frequently asked questions:|
|How far in advance should I book for my wedding?|
|If you have a specific date in mind for your wedding booking at Avalon Castle should be made at least nine to twelve months in advance. Some dates will be available at shorter notice, so please contact us to enquire. Winter months are less popular than other times of the year, so there is more chance of booking your date at shorter notice for May, June or July.|
|Is there anywhere for our guests to stay locally?|
|As the Dandenong Ranges is such a beautiful area it is a major tourist destination. Therefore there are many types of accommodation available in and close to Cockatoo, and we can assist in advising you where to enquire. We offer complimentary overnight stay (with breakfast) in the secluded Castle Cottage for the bride and groom.|
