They were excellent, and everything went really well! They let us in the day before to set everything up, and it turned out really beautiful! It's a stunning venue itself too. They did a 3 course meal, and served the drinks we brought in. Sasha was really good, prompt and she was really good with all the questions I kept asking!

Fantastic venue with excellent service to match. Any problems that arose were swiftly dealt with. All of our guests and bridal party were well taken care of and we couldn't have been happier to spend our special day amongst the beautiful and natural setting. Highly recommend :)

Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens is a supurb wedding venue. The food was so delicious and you were so helpful in accommodating people with dietry requirements. Our guests were raving about how nice their dinner and canapes were. You all round made the whole day/night run very smoothly. Sasha and Catherine were an absolute pleasure supporting us every step of the way. Sasha was so helpful and kind when there were a few covid scares through the wedding planning. Catherine was amazing on the night of the wedding and was so organised and made sure we had a fabulous night. The venue is stunning, the staff are lovely, would highly recommend to any couples looking for a wedding venue.

I attended a wedding on Sunday 3rd October at Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens. What a beautiful setting in such natural surroundings. The staff were brilliant - so very friendly, curteous, helpful and professional. The food was of a cordon bleu standard, so very delicious. I cannot recommend this venue highly enough as I could not fault anything. An absolutely gorgeous venue, it is simply picture perfect.

Bundaleer set the most amazing rainforest mood for both our ceremony and reception. The waterfall deck was breathtaking and the treetops room was simply magical. The coordinators were helpful and made everything feel calm and easy. Thank you for the most amazing day!

17 Oct 2020

Our wedding was in October 2020 and with the ever-changing restrictions that COVID imposed, Sasha was wonderful with keeping us up-to-date and even offering the option of a ghost date in 2021 if we needed to postpone. She was incredibly patient with our questions and always did her best to accommodate our requests. We were able to go in two days prior to set up and drop off alcohol (BYO option is excellent). Catherine and Michael were wonderful with helping us out during this process; and on the day itself, Catherine offered so much reassurance, liaised with our suppliers and worked effortlessly in the background to ensure everything ran smoothly. Staff on the day were excellent. We opted for Gourmet BBQ Style Menu – canapes were delicious, however some of the meat during the main service was slightly undercooked. Nonetheless, an otherwise perfect backdrop for our special day, thank you!

Beautiful private venue, very well kept. Venue manager is easy to work with. Venue is also all inclusive, you don’t have to worry about a lot of things for your ceremony and reception. Only issue is a lack of accommodation near the venue. Brisbane city is about a 35 min drive away

Absolutely beautiful location and staff were first class. Can't praise them enough.

7 Oct 2018

Beautiful venue. It was everything we could have wanted for a simple, elegant garden wedding. Wet weather options were also lovely (and included). Sasha was very helpful and knowledgeable. Food was good, though they do not offer tasting.

25 Aug 2018

Sasha and her team were so fantastic on our wedding day! Everything ran so smoothly. We were afraid it would rain all day but at the last minute she managed to set up our original garden ceremony location. The staff were so helpful and attentive. I can not recommend them enough!

Sasha the event coordinator was so helpful in every step of the way, had amazing communication skills even though I was a bit tricky/indecisive haha. Everything went smoothly and perfectly, venue looked incredible.
