Secrets on the Lake is the Sunshine Coast hinterlands most iconic Eco wedding destination and honeymoon escape. We are tucked away on the foreshore of Lake Baroon, situated between Maleny and Montville on the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
It features beautiful carved decks and rock ponds fringed by the lush rainforest. There are many stunning locations for you to choose where to have your wedding ceremony. The garden decks, the romantic chapel- like Lake House, or the elegance of the green lawns by the lake.
After the ceremony, guests can enjoy the magic of the day with stunning views of lush lawns, gardens and magnificent Lake Baroon while being refreshed with delicious cocktail-style food and beverages.

Kind words from our previous weddings
So many words I could use but just imagine an oasis of manicured lawn rolling gardens, cosy nooks, breathtaking views, handcrafted surprises everywhere you turn, this venue is absolutely astonishing. As a celebrant on the Sunshine Coast I have the privilege of visiting all of the wedding venues and this one I have married many couples .. it's paradise.., a private, spectacular oasis, a jewel in the hinterland.. Two of my best friends married here and it was PERFECT... the food and service are first class, the chef and staff received a standing ovation from the guests ... with ceremony, reception, photography and accomodation all in one place this is also a private oasis to be married with your nearest and dearest. If I could give this venue more than 5 stars I would ... love this place 🙂 It's worth a visit.. OH and afternoon tea and lunch is also amazing xx 🙂Suzanne Riley
Dear Jenni… Rob and I can’t thank you and all the team for making our day incredibly special.Everything was perfect topped off by gorgeous weather!!! We saw you, Tony and Susan run off your feet behind the scenes and working so hard to make everything run smoothly so Rob and I could relax and enjoy the day. No doubt there were many people working just as hard that we didn’t see. Please pass on our sincere thanks to George, Aldy and all the Secrets team for a superb job well done. Look forward to seeing you soon.The Eagles

The feedback from all our guests has been excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend Secrets on the Lake to others.Robert & Maureen H
The staff at Secrets were so helpful. Their input and being able to assist us in planning the day had made the day run so smoothly. Having the option for ceremony and reception at the same venue made it so easy. The staff did an amazing job setting up for both ceremony and reception. We got so many compliments on how well ran our special day was, how relaxed and casual it felt and loved the buffet option with such delicious food provided. 110% recommend this beautiful, quiet, relaxing venue and stress free day.Brett & Kim W
