    Making a Booking

    We invite you to come and visit our beautiful Secrets Garden, check out our Lakehouse and enjoy a tour or one of our treehouses. Call our office on 07 5478 5888 and arrange an inspection. One of our wedding coordinators will then give you a tour. Best time for this is before check in time, which is usually between 11am and 1pm.

    While you are here perhaps you would like to sample out food in our Café on the Deck as it will give you an idea of the standard of food to expect to be served for a wedding reception or after ceremony canapés. Having made your decision to get married here, we will do a quote based on what you have talked about and email it to you. You then have time to consider it and once you have made a final decision, we will require a deposit and Agreement Form signed and returned. The Agreement Form is at the end of the terms and conditions document. At this point we pass your details to Susan Lyle who helps you with your arrangements and eventually you will be able to sign off on your wedding event order which we then follow to the letter on your special wedding day.

    Susan Lyle, our Wedding Manager has over 20 years of experience in event management. Susan will be available to discuss all your specific details to ensure your event runs seamlessly.

However, she is able to arrange all aspects of your wedding day with her team of local professionals including celebrants, photographers, florists, hair and makeup artists as well as specialty decoration hire.

    For additional services that are not included in the venue hire, Susan is very willing to help, but there would be an additional charge.
