The Story of

The Story of

Montrose House

For almost 150 years, the historic Montrose Homestead was a private residence used by the Badgery family as their summer retreat. In the 1980s, the estate began hosting weddings, offering the property for couples to use as their exclusive home for their special day – complete with delicious food, exceptional service, and picturesque ceremony and reception locations.

Situated on over 30 acres in the heart of the Southern Highlands, Montrose boasts parklike grounds with impressive old  trees, a wide range of seasonal blooms, formal lawns, water features, a pine forest, established orchard, hazelnut grove and paddocks featuring beautiful views across the Southern Highlands.

The Residence

Built in 1861, the main residence at Montrose House has been a family home for well over 150 years and is the private residence of the current estate owners. It is a stunning example of the heritage architecture favoured by well heeled settlers of the 19th Century. Still with its original facade, sash windows, and French doors opening onto impressive verandahs, it sits perfectly in the extensive formal gardens that envelop it – a perfect example of homely Australian grandeur.
