Melbourne's most historic garden wedding venue

Our Proud History

The Hawthorn Tramway Trust purchased 137 acres of land from Mrs Eliza Welch (of the Ball and Welch Department stores) under the condition it was to be used as a public park. Wattle Park opened on 31 March 1917 when Sir Arthur Stanley planted a Golden Wattle and named the park. Planning and development of the park started in the 1920s and 30s, with a plantation of 12,000 wattle trees between 1926 and 1928. The Wattle Park Chalet was completed by Tramways Architect Alan G. Monsbourgh in 1928.

A 9-hole golf course opened at Wattle Park in October 1937, with tennis courts, sports oval, picnic areas and children’s playgrounds following soon after. The park contains areas of indigenous remnant bushland and has been nominated for being regionally significant for its high diversity of common native fauna in a suburban environment.

Built in 1928 by master craftsmen using materials salvaged from historic public buildings, the Chalet is listed on both the Heritage Victoria and National Trust Registers. The Chalet has operated continuously since it opened and is the only recorded café, dance hall, wedding reception venue and conference venue dating from the 1920s that remains operational in its original form.

The surrounding parkland also have historical significance. The Lone Pine tree across from the Chalet is included on the National Trusts Significant Tree Register. Wattle Park and its Chalet are important local landmarks and attract more than 500,000 visitors annually.
