The team at Mt Duneed is what drew us to book the venue in the first place, and they did not disappoint on our big day or in the lead up. They made sure we felt super organised in the lead up, managed all of the little things so we were stress-free, and put on the most incredible day. Our guests have all raves about the venue, the food, drinks and the vibes. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!
