Where we are

The homestead is a restored Victorian era homestead set within beautifully landscaped grounds known as Manning Park. The homestead itself is used as a museum, however the grounds can be hired for wedding ceremonies and other functions.

The Azelia Ley Homstead was built with limestone in the early 1900s and originally sat on a farm known as the Manning Estate, now the Manning Park reserve, a large, regional park. This reserve contains the Manning Lake, open grasslands, and a lookout with ocean views known as the Manning Park Stairway.

The homestead and other farm buildings are the perfect backdrop for a weddings ceremony. Note that wedding ceremonies cannot be held around the homestead on a Sunday.

To hire the reserve, submit a Passive Reserve Hire Application Form to the City of Cockburn.
