Whether you would like a rural retreat away for your group of patchworkers, or were after a venue for your 3 day work conference, Tocal has the rooms, the facilities, the tranquility and the Hunter Valley views for you and your guests to enjoy.

Tocal is situated on 2,200 hectares, so our facilities offer groups plenty of space. The Glendarra conference room is ideal for groups that require accommodation to be close, while the College offers other room sizes and facilities based on your needs. We can also provide your groups and meetings with catering.

Hay Shed Function Centre

The Hayshed Function Centre is one of our carefully restored heritage buildings situated in the Homestead precinct of Tocal, surrounded by a fine collection of colonial buildings. The function centre has plenty of space including a mezzanine area for groups to break out and team build.

Groups are also invited to do a tour of the beautiful original Homestead or take a walk through the grounds to see our other buildings, our wetlands, our heritage spotted pigs, our orchard and our gardens. Bookings can be made through Tocal Homestead, and groups using the Hayshed Function Centre will be catered by Sprout catering.
