History and About the Grounds

Dating back to 1870's, Sages Cottage estate was developed by one of the first European settlers in the district. Built from vertical timber slabs cut from trees off its very own acreage, is one of the few still standing strong of its kind to date.

Due to the reservation and preservation of the grounds, it does not completely resemble the original landscape however the original orchard and avenue of pine trees still stands, to date, as it did in the 1870's.

The combination of authentic landscape and foundations contrasted with the modernistic food scene that Going Gourmet offers proves Baxter Barn to be the perfect venue for you.


The Sages Cottage property where Baxter Barn is located is operated by leading not-profit community service organisation, Wallara Australia. Going Gourmet is proud to be Wallara’s official catering partner and every event or function held at Baxter Barn helps support Wallara with their pioneering work helping people with different abilities achieve their potential.
