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.

This venue is absolutely beautiful. We got married in the amphitheatre surrounded by nature and listening to the running creek it was everything we wanted and have had so many compliments on how amazing everything looked. The staff were also amazing helping me over the process of 2 years and 2 wedding dates after having to postpone due to covid.

We stayed in the courtyard spa room and it was the perfect room to get ready in for the day but also with our own private courtyard and outdoor spa it was a nice private place to escape with my husband to enjoy some quiet time once the wedding celebrations were over

The wedding coordinator was prompt in replying to emails and answering all of our questions. We were always welcome to come for a visit and a chat to help with our planning. The packages are comprehensive and has made it easier to visualise the way our special day will be.

Our experience here for the first time was exceptional! Wedding - We had Steph as our coordinator which is included in the package. We had the Diamond Package. There are 3 meetings to attend prior to the event so this made ease of organising everything. Table and chair decorations are also included if you wish. The team helped set up everything, the ceremony and tables, we didn't have to worry about anything. Steph also checked in on us on our special day so that was lovely. It was an amazing day and having the ceremony and reception in the same place makes life easier. Also they have undercover options if it rains. All the staff were lovely, everyone loved the food. I honestly could not fault cedar creek. Thank you Steph & cedar creek for making our day special.

Absolutely amazing venue. Staff were very friendly and professional. Food service and presentation was immaculate. The accommodations was very clean, tidy and homely. We felt very relaxed during all of our meetings with the functions team and they made all the organising so much easier and stress free. The team working our reception were very accommodating on the day. I would recommend this venue even for a weekend away.

This was the perfect venue for us! We wanted to be surrounded by nature in a serene setting and this ticked all of the boxes. All of the staff were so accommodating and made sure everything we wanted was done. The process was so easy and made it fun and exciting to plan our special day. I had lots of guests tell me how much they loved our venue

I had a lot of people from our wedding travel, so to have accommodation on site was just perfect. It made sure everyone was able to have fun with us on our special night. All of their lodges are beautiful (especially the Garden Lodge where I got ready)

18 Jul 2021

The wedding coordinators were absolutely fantastic, had an answer to every question we asked. We would give the venue 11/10 for how beautifully the day went. Can not thank Meagan enough for her dedication and hard work to make the day so special for us. Accomodation TICK Ceremony TICK Reception TICK Restaurant TICK Pets Allowed TICK What more could you ask for from a venue?

7 Jul 2021

Amazing Venue! It was the only venue we looked at and we fell in love and booked straight away. We dont regret our choice not to look at other places because the venue and the staff were amazing! Could not have asked for a better wedding. Meagan made the morning of stress free with regular check ups at my lodge to see if I needed anything and Stephanie was amazing during the reception to make sure everything was perfect!
