Woodburn Homestead Est. 1864


In May 1839, brothers John and William Rankine, settled in the outer districts near the future site of Strathalbyn. The Rankine brothers made their first camp on a hill above what became Glenbarr Homestead in Strathalbyn, built by William Rankine in 1842. William Rankine married Jane Patterson in 1824 and their son Matthew Rankine was born on 22 October 1829. Matthew married Janet Graham in 1858 and their son William Melville Rankine was born on 23 August 1863. In 1864, Matthew Rankine built Woodburn Homestead.

As a unique and fully customisable wedding venue, Woodburn Homestead offers a choice of ceremony and reception locations, plus onsite accommodation and the provision for luxury glamping tents.

Wedding ceremonies can be held in the restored stone Open Air Chapel, or under the 160-year-old Morton Bay Fig tree.

Ample space is available to erect a marquee, or receptions can be held in The Stables including adjoining lawns hung with festoon lights. Or open up The Stables onto the slate patio and gazebo which overlook the majestic Angas River.

Catering, planning and styling services are offered by Cindy and her hand-selected team of staff and suppliers, for a celebration to suit any taste and budget.
