Whether you’re looking for a spot for pre-dinner drinks or a backdrop for your photos, this room is a memorable and elegant backdrop. From the namesake rhino to the piano to the old books displayed on the shelves, the Rhino Room is a beautiful reminder of the history of Mount William Station.

The Arches

Our iconic Arches are not only picturesque but also super versatile. Built in the 1920s, in true art deco fashion, they are reminiscent of a different decade entirely – the roaring 20’s. As the picture perfect spot for a ceremony to an outdoor bar to a photoshoot background, the Arches are a standout feature ready to be customised to suit your event needs. The covered veranda is a multipurpose space that can seat up to 60 guests and be used rain or shine.

Just under the iconic Homestead arches is the historic Green Room. Traditionally a sitting room at the entrance of the home, the Green Room can be converted to host any event your heart desires. From group dinners for up to 20 guests or a happy hour for mingling, the Green Room’s ambiance and views through the arches are sure to set the mood right.

Originally founded in 1842, and rebuilt in 1920 after fire destroyed part of the original homestead, an invitation to stay at Mount William Station was highly sought after. Positioned at the foothills of the majestic Grampians National Park, the Homestead became the spectacular backdrop to many great stories in Victoria’s rich pastoral history – welcoming dignitaries and hosting many society gatherings.

Mount William Station now invites guests to take a step-back-in-time with the Homestead’s beautiful old-world charm and unique traditions retained, complemented with a luxuriously modern upgrade. This very special place that has provided a peaceful sanctuary to generations of family members for over a century provides a spectacular backdrop for romantic getaways that are like no other and for family and friends to gather and write their own stories that will be passed down from generation to generation.

The history of our family’s rich farming heritage remains on show with the property continuing to operate as a working stud and prime lambing farm – running Charolais cattle and sheep. One of only seven of the same design in Australia and heritage listed, the property’s bluestone ‘working’ woolshed is a beauty to behold and full of historic relics and treasures.
