Venue hire

Ararat's most unusual and interesting venue.

Built of bluestone, the gaol/asylum still contains the original cells and offers the possibility of many unique experiences.

J Ward can host large numbers and provide catering for a variety of functions. Entertainment can be added to your event with a day/night or ghost tour.
