About Us

Poet’s Lane, only 50 minutes from Melbourne and nestled in the magnificent Dandenong Ranges is a premium wedding and reception venue.

In addition to Poet’s Lane we manage the popular wedding venues Lyrebird Falls and Tatra also in the Dandenong Ranges, and only 35km from the Melbourne CBD.

Timeless laneways, a beautiful oak tree, picturesque bridge and elegant water features are all aspects of Poet’s Lane that attract our discerning clients.

Yet, we are often told it’s the personalised and experienced service offered by our passionate wedding coordinators which really makes the difference to the many weddings and receptions we host.

Our wedding function coordinators, most of whom have been with us for many years, will work with you to make your wedding dreams a reality. With only one wedding ceremony held onsite each day your wedding coordinator will have your undivided attention.

Special features of Poet’s Lane:

  • Everything including accommodation is at one venue, giving your wedding day a great flow. Our luxury cottages are a great place for the bridal party to get ready onsite.
  • Multiple options for your wedding ceremony; intimate, stained glass chapel, or garden gazebo wedding ceremony near the grand oak tree.
  • The spectacular Dandenong Ranges and beautiful ever-changing gardens provide fantastic photographic backdrops.
  • Only 50 minutes from the Melbourne CBD but with an intimate, natural setting for your wedding and reception.

Please feel free to contact us and arrange a personal inspection or find out more about our associated wedding reception venues in the Dandenong Ranges.

The gardens

Poet’s Lane in the amazing Dandenong Ranges is only 50 minutes from Melbourne and our gardens are beautiful all year round.

A wedding in spring or summer

Our garden lights up with bright colours and there is so much to see, so why not come along during our frequent viewing times or open day.

On the glorious spring and summer days we have in the Dandenong Ranges a wedding ceremony in the gazebo, shaded by a magnificent oak tree which provides a great natural setting within our extensive landscaped gardens. The gazebo can also double as a lovely shaded area for pre-dinner drinks.

A wedding in autumn or winter

Autumn at Poet’s Lane is incredible; from vibrant yellows along Sherbrooke Road to the redness of our very special oak tree.

It creates a picturesque setting for your wedding ceremony and endless photographic opportunities.

For a winter wedding at Poet’s Lane you could enjoy our stunning stained glass chapel, the beautiful pre-dinner drinks area, not to mention our two fire places which will keep your guests warm and comfortable.

The chapel flows through to the pre-dinner drinks area which means that your guests can stay indoors and enjoy our beautiful gardens through our extensive windows. It has also been known to snow in this area of the Dandenongs and on that rare occasion a white wedding can provide amazing photo opportunities too.

Contact us to arrange for one of our wedding coordinators who would love to show you around the gardens and the rest of our beautiful venue.
