In 1983 John and Louise Ward operated a deer farm, then built what was formerly Yarra Valley Conference Centre (YVCC) and is now proudly Yarra Valley Estate.
Their long-term vision for the property was to create a dedicated function venue specialising in conferences and events. Shortly after, Yarra Valley Estate (YVE) was established and continues to grow as a leading conference and event venue in the Yarra Valley.
‘Our venue has a warm and inviting atmosphere making guests feel like they are returning home’. With sustainability at the heart of every decision, we aim to leave the environment in a better shape than when we found it, for future generations – Louise Ward.
