Set on a 320-acre rainforest property on the Gold Coast hinterland, Cedar Creek Lodges at Thunderbird Park is a magnificent rainforest wedding venue on Tamborine Mountain that has a great offering for weddings. It boasts an ideal outdoor canopy setting for wedding ceremonies and plenty of boutique hotel accommodation so that wedding guests can stay the night.

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.

We had Teddy as our coordinator which is included in the package. We had the midweek special which meant the celebrant and DJ were included in our 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. Teddy also checked in on us on our special day so that was lovely. You can include your dog at the ceremony if you wish. It was a lovely 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 for making our day special :)

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.
