Thank you for considering Stonesthrow to host your special event. Tucked away in Launceston, Stonesthrow is a unique venue offering unsurpassed views of our lake, wildlife and rolling pastures. The restaurant features floor to ceiling glass windows so your guests can fully appreciate the stunning views, natural light and stay comfortable whatever the weather outside. Set on over 90 acres of land but only minutes from the CBD, it really is a magical location for your special day.
Stonesthrow is owned and operated by the Dornauf family. A family with a rich history in premium Tasmanian food production having farmed dairy cows in the Meander Valley for 3 generations and now owners of the delicious Hillwood Berries and Hillwood Farmgate & Pick Your Own. Our function menu offerings are lovingly made with real farm produce where all of our eggs and meat are free-range, local wine is produced just for us and where seasonal fresh berries come straight from our famiy farm.
Our restaurant capacity is for 70 seated guests for a sit down meal, and we can cater for up to 95 guests for a cocktail style stand up event. You are welcome to choose from our set function menus or we can work our Chef to create a menu exclusively to suit your event (Capacity soon to be increased with the completion of our undercover deck Dec 2017).
We can help you arrange and choose a location from lakeside, one of our grassed areas or on our pontoon.
We have ample complimentary parking for all of your guests and a drop off area at the front door making access to our venue hassle free.
