Could not have found a better wedding venue! Stunning grounds, staff and food! An absolutely seamless process to have our wedding at Coolibah Downs. From the first viewing through to the day of, we were met with utmost professionalism which resulted in a stress free planning and day of wedding. We were most impressed with our wedding coordinator, Leticia, who genuinely wanted our day to be the best it could be. Leticia ran the day so efficiently & smoothly, we had no issue. Our guests loved the venue, were impressed with the food quality and portions, numerous of our guests even said it was the best food they’ve ever had a wedding. Leticia & the staff at Coolibah Downs are second to none, if you’re thinking about booking your wedding here, you won’t regret it.

Every staff member at Coolibah Downs are amazing, they are all so helpful and friendly and they know exactly how to make your special day better than you could ever imagine. Tia was our wedding coordinator and she was amazing from start to finish. The set up team did an asking job setting up everything; ceremony (in the chapel), garden for cocktail hour and reception (in marquee). They did everything exactly how we wanted it and everything looked better than I could’ve imagined. The bar staff were awesome as well, I can safely say not many people went home sober. The food from appetisers, to mains to desserts were so beautiful and definitely worth every penny. Myself, my bridesmaids and Mum all got ready in the homestead which was amazing to get ready on site, it put my mind at ease.

Coolibah was the most amazing venue, and I would recommend them to anyone wanting an all inclusive, highly supported and beautiful day. The team were magnificent and cater to everyone's every need, the food was spectacular, the location was simply perfect. they managed all of my suppliers on the day for me, and touched base giving me updates as required. I would give them even more than 5 stars if I could. Than you team, and a special mention to Kylie and Tia who were my biggest support!

I'm limited to 150 words, which isn't nearly enough to say all the amazing things about this venue. Leticia our wedding coordinator was the most professional, fantastic coordinator I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Our guests even commented on how great she was. The venue is just stunning it takes your breath away just driving in and the chapel (which we chose) was the perfect backdrop to the quiet forestry of the private estate. The food and drinks were divine. The gelato (yes gelato carts!) was the highlight of all the kids (and some adults). There's also so much accommodation we had the majority of our guests able to stay the night so they could drink and dance until dawn! Please do yourselves a favour and just go check it out!

Hands down the best venue!!! No words can explain the amazing day/night we had at Coolibah Downs. We knew that our day would be perfect, but it really was just that and more. Leticia our wedding coordinator was absolutely FANTASTIC! From the start when we first met her, to the very end! She always made me feel like she truly cared about making our day special and it being exactly how we wanted it to be. She’s one of my new besties! The kitchen team, also absolutely fantastic! The food was the most talked about part of our wedding day. We chose the buffet option, and I would not have had it any other way! As for the bar staff and everyone else, so extremely great at what they do! They were so kind whilst we danced around all night. It was the best night ever. Thanks Coolibah!
