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.

Amazing! Prices and packages were great for what they offered. We had the full wedding package and was able to use the whole facilities. Very comfortable and very open. Would definitely go back there again!

Platypus Park was nothing short of AMAZING!! The venue is absolutely breathtaking and the barn is stunning! It can be rustic or elegant, the possibilities are endless. Platypus Park can accommodate for nearly anything, you will be able to put together the wedding of your dreams!! Our day could not have been more perfect thanks to Col & Julie. They were so accommodating and answered any questions I had. They made us feel so welcome from the minute we met them. The accommodation is so beautiful and makes it so much more special to be able to wake up there the morning of your special day and then again the day after. Words cannot do this amazing venue justice… it feels like you are in a whole different world.

Platypus Park Riverside Retreat was the perfect venue for our wedding. the property is just breathtakingly beautiful and the owners, Col and Julie, are awesome! our wedding was everything we had wished for, thank you to Col and Julie for all their help and recommendations. we couldn't have asked for a better property, venue and people to work with to make our day so special. we also stayed in their guest house for 3 nights which was clean, tidy and homely. we highly recommend Col and Julie's property to everyone!

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.

Excellent! They did everything that we wanted, however the only issue we had was that we had to finish at 12pm compared to other venues that stay open later. We still had an amazing night though.
