The Refectory Werribee Park Launch

By Emma Clapham.

Bursaria recently hosted an intimate grazing lunch for their nearest and dearest media and industry friends to celebrate the launch of their exciting new venue The Refectory Werribee Park.

Set within the historic Werribee Park Mansion only 30 minutes from Melbourne, The Refectory is nestled in 10 acres of formal gardens and rolling lawns surrounding the grand 1870s Mansion.

Recently undergoing an extensive refurbishment with interiors designed by Doherty Design Studio, features include Mark Douglass lighting (hand blown in Melbourne), bespoke carpet, spectacular high ceilings and luxury contemporary furnishings.

Take a look at the menu below and images of the beautiful launch.
