Excellent barn style reception area overlooking the Burnett River with immaculate grounds that provide plenty of photo opportunities. Col and Julie are approachable and happy to assist with any wedding planning queries. The on-site accommodation is well-equipped and perfect for visiting family or the bridal party.
The venue was great and they were willing to do everything to make the day special. We were also able to view the venue many times before the wedding. The owners also helped us out. It was a beautiful venue and I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else.
Thankyou so much Angela we thoroughly enjoyed hosting your wedding at Platypus Park Riverside Retreat.
This is such a beautiful venue and we had perfect weather for our wedding day. The space allows you to tailor it to your needs and use suppliers of your choice. Given that it is a blank canvas to work with was great, however it also did require a lot of organisation as you needed to arrange everything from glassware, crockery and cutlery to speakers for the venue. Col and Julie were lovely to work with throughout the process and open to new ideas - we had a dance floor out on the grass under festoon lighting. It would be great if the venue could develop a package that they give you when you book or a looking to hire the venue which could include things like photos of the furniture they have available to use of hire, depending on your package. This would help having to alleviate some of the back and fourth initially required to organise. Things I wasn't aware of when we initially hired the venue was that you needed to arrange a bus for over 60 guests, however guests appreciate this.
