Foothills Conference Centre is versatile enough to host a range of celebrations. From a full silver-service Gala Dinner, to a garden Wedding service followed by a casual buffet and music for over 100 guests. A High Tea afternoon get together with family and friends, or surprise 50th Birthday Celebrations. Foothills can stylishly accommodate almost any occasion requested.
Foothills Conference Centre is the perfect venue for hosting any celebrations that recognise, reward and acknowledge personal achievements, usually accompanied by our sumptuous silver service dinner. Foothills chefs are more than happy to discuss the many different menu options available for your guests, and take great pride to ensure the majority of ingredients are locally sourced through our Yarra Valley partnerships.
Previous functions have included award ceremonies, employee acknowledgments, and outstanding service appreciations. Companies have also used a Gala Dinner for introducing a new product or service to an audience of clients.
Both our small and large dining areas have technologically up-to-date audio, lighting and projection equipment. Special guests’ achievements can easily be displayed with our pictorial presentation technology. The seating in our two main dining areas can be placed in almost any arrangement you choose, or allow floor space for speeches, music and dancing. And, of course, we welcome most styles of decorating, to guarantee your Gala Dinner sponsor is easily identified.

“Fantastic venue. Rooms are beautiful. Food fantastic & the staff are warm, friendly & attentive. Highly recommended.”
We love to think of Foothills Conference Centre as a wedding venue that conveniently offers everything required to help make a truly special occasion. There aren’t too many function centres that can has the versatility to satisfy most wedding requests with ease, and onsite.
Foothills features both, a full size gazebo settled in one of our grassy areas, or our popular onsite Chapel; both are ideal for viewing the bride and groom exchanging their vows. And, our manicured lawn areas allow easy access to the eucalypt surrounded natural and lake backdrops, which perfect for framing wedding’s photo memories.
Weddings of all sizes and styles can be catered for, from the most casual affair, to a formal, silver service dining experience. We have two adaptable dining areas, which have all the ‘new’ technologies desired for modern weddings. Our chefs are highly skilled in most cuisines and can cater for almost every menu preferences.
Bridal parties can take advantage of booking quality executive suites for all the necessary hair and makeup preparations, and somewhere to spend the ‘night before’ the big day, where they can rest, relax and change outfits. Many guests often choose to book accommodation and stay onsite after the reception, then the following day tour the many sights and attractions of the beautiful Yarra Valley.
