The Shearing Shed is a beautiful vintage rustic restaurant and function centre located on the outskirts of Cowes, Phillip Island on 20 acres surrounded by farmland. Originally a 1950’s working shearing shed, the facility has been renovated.

Welcome to The Shearing Shed. Unquestionably one of the most sort after Events Venues on Phillip Island. We have the ability to host both your ceremony and reception and take pride in making them exactly what dreams are made of.

Off the beaten path and up an unassuming driveway you will find a hidden gem in this modern Australian restaurant and function centre. Come find us.

Greeting you at the gate is an early model tractor, the first of many farming implements you will find amongst the gardens. Each one telling its own story of how the land was farmed in years gone by. 

Set in what was a working shearing shed many moons ago, the restaurant has a warm and welcoming ambience with an open fireplace and rough sawn timbers. The Barn has soring beams and large windows creating a sun-soaked indoor ceremony option. The Billabong is a landscaped outdoor area with waterfall, pontoon and lawn area providing a beautiful outdoor alternative setting for your ceremony. Our stunningly gorgeous, one-of-a-kind venue will serve as the perfect canvas for a special, love-filled day. Our fantastic rural location offers guests a private venue while still being a few kilometers from Cowes.

Not only do we provide the venue, but our team of chefs can cater your event and our handy bar staff can provide the drinks. We aim to make your day as easy as possible with our team of professionals.
