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.

Ben and the team at Goolabri were beyond incredible and made our night even more unforgettable! Nothing was too much for Ben and he was so easy to talk to any time of the day. Thank you so much Ben and the Goolabri team for everything you did for us on our special day!

An amazing venue! We had so many comments from our guests about their top service. Flawless service all night! Ben is great and we couldn’t have asked for any more!

Ben and the team made our day effortless. They ensured we were fed, despite our crazy photo schedule and the food was delicious! The space was beautiful, the location was perfect and all staff were friendly. We highly recommend Goolabri.

Ben and the team at Goolabri made our day special. The venue is beautiful and despite moving into the garden room due to inclement weather, it was still stunning. The service was brilliant, the food is DIVINE and no-one went home hungry. Ben accommodated all our COVID changes, plus some last minute guest additions with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend them.

My husband and I just had our wedding reception at the Wedgetail Pavilion at Goolabri on Saturday August 1 2020. James was extremely accommodating for us during what was a very stressful time to plan a wedding. James was very patient with us as we changed our date due to coronavirus, answered all my questions, arranged times to meet on several occasions and helped us throughout the whole experience. He truly made our wedding planning experience that much better with his excellent service and experience in event planning. The pavilion itself was wonderful, it looked amazing and was really picturesque. The food was plentiful and tasted amazing, all our guests loved everything and the table service was great. Our event did need to be seated to comply with state restrictions, but Goolabri staff ensured that this did not have overwhelming effects on the feel of our day. It was perfect.

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.

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.

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.
