Cedar Creek Lodges is a premier rainforest wedding destination on Tamborine Mountain within the Gold Coast hinterland. Nestled alongside the cascading Cedar Creek and lush Tamborine National Park, our award-winning wedding venues are surrounded by subtropical rainforest. Plan your special celebration with the ceremony, reception and guest accommodation all in one unique hinterland location.

Guests are comfortable and relaxed as their immediate vista encompasses a waterfall tumbling over mossy pebbles and rocks, falling to a delicate canal, bridged gently by a timber walkway.  Their backdrop is the ever-imposing rainforest, with the bridal party centre-stage on the timber platform below.

As the groom waits under the elevated beams suspended by fragrant jasmine encrusted pillars, his bride steps across a stone arched bridge and magically approaches through a winding woodland path.  Dancing shadows, dappled sunlight, trickling water and birdsong add to the ambience as the happy couple takes their vows.

The all-weather canopy is an exceptional architectural feature in an outstanding location.  This majestic venue links with the enchanting Island Glade reception venue.

By day this enchanting venue is softly lit as dappled sunlight filters through the lush rainforest greenery. Colourful songbirds add to the magic. By night candles and a creek side bonfire create another element.

The ambience is enhanced by the velvet sky and silver stars. Candles suspended from the tiered roofline bathe the Island Glade in soft light as an illuminated waterfall dances on the pebbled rock pools.

The Island Glade can be decorated to complement the wedding theme and the natural rainforest greenery. Parties of 50 or more guests can indulge the senses with fine food, wine and the natural magic of this unique rainforest location. 

A variety of other stunning receptions venues are available for you to choose from.

Amazing venue. The staff are all so lovely and accommodating. They helped both of us remain calm and stress free and were always there to lend a hand. It was a magical night and the food was super delicious.

From the minute I saw the venue I fell in love. The Amphitheatre and Island Glade provide such a stunning scenery and amazing atmosphere. The food was absolutely beautiful and there was so much of it none of our guests were left hungry. Monica & Teddy were amazing from our first meeting all the way through to the days after. I wish we could do it all again!

Getting married at Cedar Creek Lodges was the easiest and loveliest experience. They truly did everything from setting up the tables, organising the accommodation, celebrant, DJ - to telling me when to walk down the aisle. I truly felt like I didn’t have to worry about a thing and it was so easy. Monica and Teddy are always warm, welcoming and happy to help. I’d recommend this venue a thousand times.

The venue is beautiful, food is well prepared (and plenty of it for the buffet option), and reception was very well managed.
