Thank you for considering McCrossin’s Mill Museum and Function Centre as the venue for your Wedding Celebration.

Weddings are exciting occasions with a great deal of anticipation and celebration leading up to the big day. There are many decisions to be made and much to organise, and we would like to assist you in making your wedding day a most enjoyable and memorable day. Every wedding is unique and we take pleasure in working with you to ensure your special day runs smoothly.

The following pages contain information on our venue and the facilities that we offer. There are a variety of venue hire options available and we welcome your contact by telephone or by email should you require any further information. We also encourage you to make an appointment with our Functions Co-ordinator Anne Mayo to view our lovely and truly unique venue.


THE VENUE AND GROUNDS

Located in the heart of Uralla, McCrossin’s Mill was built as a steam driven Flour Mill by Alexander Mitchell for John McCrossin in 1872.
This historic building has been lovingly restored and converted into a Museum and Function Centre by the Uralla Historical Society.

The Uralla Historical Society volunteers maintain and operate McCrossin’s Mill Museum and Function Centre.

The McCrossin’s Mill function room can accommodate up to 80 guests comfortably for a seated formal reception. You can enjoy your arrival drinks and hors d’oeuvres in our beautiful garden, or our charming front verandah in the event of inclement weather, and then sit down to enjoy your chosen meal.
For numbers over 80 we recommend a Finger Food Reception which works very well, or a casual buffet, allowing guests to enjoy the full use of the front verandah and rear gardens.

Features of McCrossin’s Mill include:

  • Superbly restored Flour Mill, ideally suited for private functions
  • Charming and intimate atmosphere
  • Delightful and tranquil gardens, perfect for pre-dinner drinks and hors d’ oeuvres.
  • Marvellous location and backdrop for photographs
  • Cosy wood heater, ideal for cooler weather
  • A friendly, experienced team to ensure your function is a memorable occasion
  • There are many local accommodation options available for guests
