Merrimu ReceptionsMerrimu is a unique boutique venue, specialising in Weddings, catering for Melbourne brides and grooms since 1955.
We offer the choice of two separate elegantly appointed function rooms, depending on number of guests, each with its own entrance, welcoming foyer for pre drinks, bar, bridal room and bathroom facilities.
The name 'Merrimu' comes from the original colonial homestead built on this site in 1882. It is a local Koori word that appropriately means, 'meeting place'.
The original homestead was converted to a reception venue in 1955, now known as the Merrimu Room. Following a successful 12 years of trading, what is now known as the Grand Ballroom was constructed onto what was the sprawling grounds and circular driveway of the original home.
The Merrimu Room, still is complete with many of the original Victorian era features, seating up to 140 guests, while the Grand Ballroom can seat up to 400 guests.
Centrally located at 1300 Dandenong Road, Murrumbeena, (opposite the popular Chadstone Shopping Centre), Merrimu is handy to main roads, easy to find and has ample off-street parking.
Inside the spacious rooms: Rich wool carpets, ornate ceilings, opulent drapes, gilded mirrors and grand staircase helps create an ambience of glamour and grandeur.
The elegance of Merrimu can only be appreciated after a personal inspection. Our professional event coordinators will assist with preparations for your event and guide you through the benefits of choosing Merrimu as your preferred venue.
We are open for tours seven days a week by appointment.
