Questions and Answers


Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa

Our alternative indoor location for a Ceremony would be inside Cuisine Restaurant or the Alpine Room (depending on guest numbers). Lakeview Stage is another location but is only semi sheltered, so this location is only suitable for smaller groups.


Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa

Absolutely, every couple is unique and therefore the wedding styling should reflect your personalities. You can assign a family member or friend to set up the reception/ceremony on your behalf or choose to book your wedding coordinator to do so for you at an extra cost.

Most definitely! The wedding coordinator’s role here at Lake Crackenback Resort is to be there from your initial enquiry through to a warm welcome at your reception as newlyweds.

Lake Crackenback was our dream place to get married, but the thing that made our wedding was the events team. We cannot thank Tarah and her team enough for all the emails and planning that went into the wedding ahead of the big day to make it as special as it was. Not only that, but it poured rain on our wedding day, and all the staff were able to change our whole set up so we could still have our ceremony outside undercover. Tarah went above and beyond driving us around the resort, helping with photos, bringing us food, and checking in on us. I cannot speak higher of this venue and this team.

Such a beautiful venue with the ease of doing everything in the one spot! Staff are super friendly and helpful!

20 Nov 2015

The team at Lake Crackenback Spa and Resort are the essence of professional. Nothing is too much trouble. I was planning our wedding remotely (2 hours and 30 minutes away) and I had quite a few logistical and general questions throughout the planning process, and they were able to answer all of them quickly and efficiently. It just made life so much easier to know that no question was a hassle for them. After our special day I really got the sense that the whole team at the Resort know their business really well, and are all about making your day just that much more special. I couldn't recommend them enough.

11 Mar 2017

On the wedding day they were really good, we just had a few slight communication issues before hand as the menu was not quite what we thought it was going to be. They ended up getting to the bottom of it and it all worked on great.

Best honeymoon we could have asked for!! We love the outdoors, so there were plenty of activities for us or we could just cuddle up by our fireplace! There is also a great schnapps distillery just down the road and a fantastic restaurant at the resort.

Absolutely stunning location and great that all the guests could stay at the same place where the wedding was held - a whole weekend affair. The team at Crackenback were professional and helpful and organised a very smoothly run event. Amazing food too.
