Fantastic venue, Claire the AQWA coordinator was fantastic knew what she was talking about and happy to help when needed. Perfectly sized dancefloor, great view before sunset, and we had lots of comments on the great food! Loved the colours it matched our beach theme beautifully!

Loved the function centre for our wedding reception! We were able to visit the venue as many times as we wanted in the leadup. Food was amazing, guests had the best time and our whole night ran so smoothly. Could not be any happier with the service we received.

Pretty good overall. Food was great, staff were initially not very attentive to the bridal party on arrival and we were literally left alone to find our own way however, the service following this was great.
