A modern venue amid surrounds steeped in history.

That was the vision of events business Bursaria when it opened The Refectory Werribee Park in 2015.

The Refectory is nestled in formal gardens and rolling lawns surrounding the grand 1870s Werribee Mansion.

Bursaria marketing manager Danica Ratte said The Refectory was an important part of the local community through creating unforgettable events and bringing people together to enjoy amazing food.

“We are proud to be part of such an iconic and historical building … having the opportunity to support a series of important local community events,” she said.
