Our Fairytale

We always dreamed of a piece of land in the country near the coast. We always imagined that we’d be driving down a dirt road, somewhere in Australia and find our own little slice of paradise. But we never could have foreseen what we would find here at 

The Barn On The Ridge. 

We happened across this Milton wedding venue for sale while driving out to hike Pigeon House Mountain for the first time. Fortunately, the four of us, a brother and sister and their North American imports, were ready for a change from the hustle and bustle of Sydney and were all equally in love with the South Coast.


We could see the potential that the property held from the very beginning and we could also see that only together did we have the necessary skills to make it work.

Together we took a chance on a dream and a lifestyle down south. To say that we have been welcomed warmly by this wonderful community would be an understatement, and the support that has been given and received through the fires and the floods is beyond words.

It was a u-turn and a chance encounter which brought us to this little slice of paradise, but we’ve known ever since that there was something like divine intervention that day.

We're still pinching ourselves.

Brad and Mindy

Brad & Mindy

This beautiful Aussie/American duo (+ their two gorgeous pups) make up one half of our team here at The Barn On The Ridge. 


Their journey began in the hustle and bustle of Sydney, but they fell in love with the South Coast and have always yearned for wide open spaces. 


Brad is the team’s builder and the mastermind behind our beautiful Barn. Regardless of the time you will likely find him milling timber for his next project or knocking together our next gorgeous feature. 


Mindy is your main point of contact and the person on the other end of your enquiries. She will answer all of your questions, show off the property for viewings and liaise with suppliers for your special day.

Mack & Laura

The Canadian/Aussie combo that complete our team met on a chance encounter in Canada and chased each other around the world before finally choosing to be by each others' side for good.

These two are a little nomadic so it’s not altogether uncommon for them to be doing their bit from across the globe. They handle our online platforms and chip in with various bits and pieces whenever they’re in town.

You may have already come across them during your travels around this beautiful country of ours!
