Excellent! Very simple process, stress free and it was a great experience. Food was fantastic, catered to a wide range of dietary requirements and there were no hidden charges. Highly recommend!

Thank you Luke for your great feedback, it was a pleasure to be part of your day!

Goolabri was the all in one venue for the ceremony, reception and photography. We were able to use some of the cottages on the property to get ready beforehand. It had a beautiful relaxed country vibe, and had the benefit of being so close to Canberra. The ceremony/chapel space was perfect for our exchanging of vows, it created an intimate vibe and we particularly loved the exposed beams and the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the bush. The lawns were lovely for pre-dinner drinks and canapes, and the rustic pub/restaurant was great to have the reception in. There was plenty of space for a live band and dance floor. The staff at Goolabri went above and beyond to help us set up the space with our own decorations and flowers, and the wait staff were 100% on top of several guests with special dietary requirements and actively sought them out with specially made canapés. Goolabri even helped organise a courtesy bus for our guests to get home safely at the end of the night. We had approximately 150 guests in total, and they accommodated that amount with ease.We look back on our wedding with such happy memories, mainly due to how wonderful everything at Goolabri was, and the professionalism of the staff.

The bloke James who organised everything was really good, there were no dramas there with anything. They put together food and drinks for us, all the staff were great and very organised. We had everything there, the ceremony on the lawn, and the reception at the Wedgetail pavilion. Anything we wanted them to get they got, easy!

They were good! The food could have been a little bit better, however everything else was good.

Couldn’t have been more relaxed.

The team at Goolabri went out of their way to make our wedding perfect. We were the first clients to use their new marquee and our big Indian wedding had 300 guests and a 2 hour ceremony. They worked with us to bring our vision to life as the marquee was being built and made sure all the details were covered. They were so helpful in allowing us to bring our decorators and caterers in at any time. They just made the process really easy and stress free. On the day, the team was on the ground to ensure that the new marquee didn't have any problems. I can't speak highly enough of this venue and their team. They bring a personal touch to their events and make their clients feel very welcome and cared for. The marquee itself is a gorgeous white structure overlooking the bush. It felt open and airy. The rustic charm was perfect and provided a great backdrop for all the ceremony colours and decorations.

They were excellent! The management were great to work with, we had a really great time.

11 Nov 2017

It was perfect! They were very accommodating with what we wanted to do. We chose to have a cocktail style wedding and they were very flexible and wanted to help us in any way they could.

My husband and I decided on Goolabri the moment we arrived for our site visit. The grounds are gorgeous and in Spring the gardens are full of colour. The team at Goolabri were incredibly patient and provided us with some brilliant advice along the way. At no point did they try and shape the day to fit them, it was always about what we wanted and how we could make it happen. Our package included use of the Garden room for the ceremony, the lawns and the Iron bar. We had quite a large wedding with 90 or so guests and found Goolabri to be very competitive with their pricing, especially compared to the Canberra area. Our package included a 5 course degustation menu with our cake served as the last course. The food was great, there was lots of it and our guests had a really great time. The only thing that could have made it better, was if they had accommodation available on site.

They were incredible! They had everything in a package that suited us really well which was our favourite part, and the service was absolutely amazing. Our wedding coordinator was very prepared and very approachable.

18 Mar 2017

They were really good and it is a lovely venue! The owner and manager were as accommodating as they could be and tried to make our wedding the best it could be. We did unfortunately have a few let downs with communication but they did the best they could.

11 Mar 2017

They were great! We absolutely loved the venue, it was just perfect for us! It was the perfect combination of what my husband and I wanted and they made everything very smooth for us and were so accommodating.

17 Dec 2016

They were really good, very organised and the catering side of it was really good. We did need to have a stylist/florist to do decorative side of things though.

10 Dec 2016

They were great! We did have had a couple of issues with communication leading up to the day however on the day they went above and beyond and the food was just incredible!
