What an amazing venue!!! From the lovely staff to the decor and the food, simply perfection. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was! Would't have changed a thing!

Thanks so much for your review and kind words Loren! It was a pleasure having you and your guests :)

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.

The perfect venue. Married in the botanical gardens with the Opera house and harbour bridge behind us followed by the most fabulous reception at The Pavilion just a moment's walk away. Wonderful staff who accommodated us all with warmth and fun.

AVOID!! Not worth the disappointment!! We had loved this venue, had been there loads of times, but we were terribly let down. About 2 weeks before the day we were told that there was going to be a festival in the domain and the venue would be surrounded by thick, high fencing. We questioned why we had not been told so and were told that it was in our contract that at short notice this could happen. The green views and sunset was completely blocked. But then it got worse! There was some kind issue with the A/C and the room was stifling. All our guests sat outside looking at the fencing because inside was so hot. The night was pretty much ruined, no big dancefloor, everyone was sweating and uncomfortable. We raised this with Terrace and were given a very small refund, but not even the full venue fee.

The venue was beautiful and the location convenient. We appreciated having our ceremony on-site, a true testament to its versatility. The restaurant was top-notch, and the venue manager stood out with his friendly demeanor and proactive assistance. However, our experience with the event planning team was less than ideal. Over three months, we interacted with three different planners. Each transition meant revisiting details we'd previously settled, which proved time-consuming and frustrating. Communication between the venue and our external suppliers was also challenging, causing some unnecessary complications. Despite offering constructive feedback post-event, the response felt dismissive, leaving us feeling unheard. While the venue itself is a gem, the inconsistent event planning service impacted our overall experience. We hope they consider these points and make improvements for future clients.
