Private waterfront mansion an event venue to impress
Tucked away on the Bellarine Peninsula, 100km south of Melbourne, is a stately white mansion estate on the water’s edge – an event venue to impress, whether for a corporate retreat, conference or an incentive program.

Campbell Point House sits on 40 acres of direct waterfront on Lake Connewarre and is surrounded by 10,000 acres of lush national park, with sweeping views across the Bellarine Peninsula.

The luxury French provincial chateau was originally built in 2008 as a private home for Aaron Parkhill, a nephew of Westfield founder Frank Lowy. Parkhill has revealed that the no-expense-spared property, constructed from material imported from Europe, was inspired by the movie Meet Joe Black, starring Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins. 

It was listed for sale in 2020 at $22 million, but recent real estate talk has seen the suggested price jump to $32 million. Meanwhile Campbell Point continues to operate as an exclusive private event venue with its grand scale entertainment spaces inside and out. Accommodation for a residential event is in eight suites and a three-bed, two-bath cottage. A master suite occupies the entire second floor of the mansion. In total, the property can accommodate 30.

The property, with its huge country kitchen, was opened to television cameras for an episode of MasterChef, and has hosted some lavish private parties and VIP guests.

Apart from the wow factor setting, as a venue, it offers business events planners a broad range of options from an infinity pool, championship grass tennis court, clay target shooting, cooking classes, a sauna, day spa and a private jetty. There’s a professional chef on hand and meal services are available to suites, outdoor spaces or within the property’s conservatory.

And while Campbell Point enjoys an unsurpassed level of seclusion – the property cannot be seen from any publicly accessible grounds or streets – there’s even a boardroom set on a lake.
