The stunning destination wedding venue and luxury retreat, nestled in the rolling hills of the Coffs Harbour hinterland. Accommodation + Ceremony + Reception Venue

Friday Creek Retreat, is the perfect blank canvas venue for an outdoor destination wedding and reception.  A 100 acre luxury retreat in the rolling hills of the Orara Valley, just 15 minutes west of Coffs Harbour.

Our exclusive-use wedding packages includes accommodation for up to 40 of your closest friends and relatives (pets too!). With nine self-contained cottages, luxurious furnishings, vineyard, tennis court, resort style pool and amenities, your wedding will be a holiday getaway for your guests.

We provide the space, so you can let your creativity run wild by choosing your favourite vendors, styling, props hire, catering, and libations. We want this day to reflect your personality, so we leave the coordination details up to you.

Since you’ll have use of the entire property, privacy is assured. Your ceremony and photo-shoots can be held anywhere your hearts desire. From the lily-adorned lake, romantic island, centuries old eucalyptus stands, flowing creek or overlooking the gorgeous valley from the elegant stretch tent on our pool deck.

For your unforgettable outdoor reception, choose your favourite vendors or go DIY with all the details.  We provide the stunning backdrop of manicured gardens, magnificent valley views and rustic charm.  Choose between an intimate reception on our resort style pool deck equipped with an elegant Bedouin stretch tent, BBQ facilities, kitchen, toilets and space for 'bring your own' bar or catering hire options.  Or choose one of our packages on the lawn for larger wedding parties, with the flexibility to hire your own marquee and make your unique vision come to life.

We were thrilled to find a peaceful little retreat only 15 minutes from Coffs harbour and all the necessities for our planned elopement. Our best laid plans turned into an intimate candlelit wedding, with 40 guests, on the beautiful pool deck overlook the immaculate park like grounds, which gave us the most gorgeous backdrop for our wedding photographs. Judy , the proprietor, could not have been more helpful and obliging in everyway! Our family booked out all the cottages, enjoying their absolute luxury and attention to detail. We could not be happier to recommend beautiful Friday Creek Retreat, as an intimate wedding venue... Chris & Barry

Thanks Chris for your lovely comments. We are so glad that your planned elopement ended up being a beautiful intimate wedding with those you love most. It's great to see you back here for your anniversary also. Warm regards Judy

People say third time lucky, but it couldn't have been any more true for us in terms of wedding venues! We were so, so lucky to have been able to get married and celebrate with our closest family and friends in the most beautiful location. Friday Creek is the most incredible venue and you treated us like family.

Thanks Laura, we are so glad you found us, after being off to a bad start with other venues shutting down. We do look forward to seeing you back here soon.
