Highly recommended! Outstandingly lovely at night especially. The food was excellent, the standard Package 1 wines terrific; the staff perfect. Lenka and Solaine - their wedding planners/supervisors are and were just great at their jobs and so lovely. All went brilliantly according to plan with a minimum of fuss and exactly to budget. We and all our guests had a marvellous time and we loved it.

Absolutely beautiful. We had our ceremony there.

19 Aug 2016

This suited what we wanted for our winter beachside wedding perfectly!! Delicious food & great atmosphere. We had our ceremony on the deck with our friends and family watching on from the lawn. We also had our own DJ and acoustic trio that they were more than happy to accommodate for. I communicated with the venue mostly by email and a little by phone as I live in Melbourne and the made it easy!!

Amazing food, great venue and reasonably priced.

16 May 2015

The Pavilion were very accommodating, even allowing us to change the date of our wedding only a few months before the date without any extra charge. Also the inclusions in our reception package were very generous and their event coordinator Kirrily was wonderful in helping finalise all the details before the wedding and helping with the set up on the day.
