Cobbin Farm Grovedale | Balyang Sanctuary
An engagement party that turned into a surprise wedding surrounded by family and friends at Cobbin Farm Grovedale.
Located on the banks of the Barwon River, Cobbin Farm homestead is a picturesque venue ideal for weddings in the chapel or gardens as well as receptions or meeting spaces in the homestead. The Homestead can cater for up to 100 people and the chapel can fit 70.

Cobbin Farm Grovedale
Cobbin farm is a group of buildings in Grovedale owned by Geelong council. The house, originally named Pine Grove, was built in 1847 by Alexander Pennell, who purchased 508 acres of Crown land. This land stretched from Waurn Ponds Creek to Boundary Road. It was later purchased by August Hartwich in the 1880s. It is now used as a community house. The chapel was originally St Cuthbert’s Church of England and was shifted from its original location in Marshall. It often used for weddings.
Balyang Sanctuary, Newtown
Balyang Sanctuary is a public park in the suburb of Newtown, Geelong on the banks of the Barwon River, it is 20 acres in size and consists of open park lands, lakes, and wetlands. One of Geelong’s most-popular picnic venues and waterbird havens was once an unattractive patch of swampy riverside land.
The park consisted of a main lake with bluestone and concrete walls. Three islands were situated in the centre, with public access to two of them via four footbridges. Water for the lake was supplied by two storm water drains at the northern end, as well as pumping water from the Barwon River. 150 car parks were provided in the area, as well as public toilets and picnic tables. A number of riverside walking and bike paths link Balyang Sanctuary with other parks along the Barwon River.
Balyang Sanctuary was upgraded in 2007, with the bluestone edging of the lake removed, and the lake rebuilt to closer resemble a natural wetland.
