Our wedding at Moby Dicks, Whale Beach was an absolute dream! Planning it without an external planner was made simple and stress-free with the help of Kizia, our event coordinator. The courtyard for the ceremony was stunning, and the reception with floor to ceiling whale beach views was breathtaking. The food and drinks were incredible, leaving our guests well fed and impressed. However, what stood out the most was the service by the staff. They seriously brought all the energy, had drinks topped up, canapés and mains out the door to everyone, and were the most friendly people I’ve met in hospitality. If you’re looking for a wedding venue that has it all, we would highly recommend booking it - it was the happiest day of our lives and we won’t forget it!

We couldn't more highly recommend Moby Dicks as a venue for a wedding. Not only is it the most beautiful space with a spectacular view, but the food was fabulous and the Moby Dicks team were incredibly helpful and accommodating and made our day so much more special than we could have imagined. From the very beginning Kizia, the event coordinator, was so incredibly helpful in talking us through all the different options we could have for a wedding there (including the ceremony package, post ceremony drinks, different food and menu options), suggested suppliers for the area and was just generally super responsive which is very much appreciated when planning a wedding. When it came to the day, everything went off without a hitch. Every single Moby Dicks team member, including Kizia and our bridal attendant, were so friendly and made it as stress free as possible.

Where do we even begin! There are no words to describe the incredible attention to detail, kindness and thoroughness of the Moby Dick's staff. We recently had the pleasure of having our wedding at Moby Dick's, Whale Beach and my goodness it was everything and more we could have ever dreamt of. Massive shoutout to Kizia, the wedding coordinator of the century and every bride and groom’s dream come true. She was the most amazing, easy to work with, incredibly organised coordinator that made the entire planning process not only fun, but stress free. If you are newly engaged, look no further than Moby Dicks, Whale Beach if you are wanting your guests to be talking about how incredible your wedding was weeks after its conclusion. We cannot thank the Moby Dicks staff enough for bring our dream wedding day to life!! We adore you guys!!

The Boathouse Group are the absolute best! Moby Dicks couldn't have been more perfect for our special day, and we are so happy we selected it. Everybody involved and who worked with us on our wedding (KC and Kizia) and all the staff were so easy and professional to deal with, we really can't thank everyone enough! The venue Moby Dicks itself is stunning, the view of Whale Beach and the generous space is unbeatable. Xiaoyu and I are so grateful that it exists and is the backdrop to one of the most memorable days of our lives!!!

Moby Dicks was a dream venue! We cannot recommend it enough. The staff were amazing and so helpful throughout the entire process. On the night, everything went perfectly, the food was incredible, and the drinks were always topped up. Planning with Moby Dick's was stress-free! Our event coordinators, KC and Kizia, were so helpful with all of the forms and decisions, and genuinely so kind and patient with us. The venue itself had a lot of added bonuses as well, such as florals and general styling options, which again made it so much easier to book everything. We absolutely loved sharing our special day with everyone at Moby Dicks!
