Kirks, Moorabool and Gong Gong reservoir parks are ideal for outdoor wedding ceremonies – but it’s important you book well in advance…
Although weddings are booked in advance, we cannot guarantee exclusive access to the parks as they are public places.
Wedding ceremonies at Kirks Reservoir Park are only allowed during specified times and in an allocated area lawn wedding area.
The rotunda at Kirks Reservoir Park is available for wedding ceremonies on request – only one ceremony is permitted at a time.
A ‘take home rubbish’ policy exists in the parks so please take your rubbish with you when you leave.
No confetti is to be used in the parks or gardens, including the carpark.
If the day is declared a total fire ban, Moorabool and Gong Gong reservoir parks are closed. Pedestrian access is available to the gardens at Kirk Reservoir Park - car access is prohibited (park on Ballarat-Daylesford Rd instead).
During extreme weather events (hail/thunderstorms/high winds, for example), we reserve the right to close the parks for public safety. We will endeavour to contact you if you have an event booked.
