Choosing a unique location to be married is not only important to the bride and groom. More couples are seeking a destination wedding to ensure their special day is an occasion where their guests also get to share a North Queensland holiday of a lifetime.
Wedding parties can check into accommodation, prepare for the big day together, stay for a relaxing recovery then leave the newly-weds to a romantic outback honeymoon.
The natural beauty of Cobbold Gorge and the Gulf Savannah promises a breathtaking backdrop where memories of a wedding celebration will remain etched in the minds of everyone who attends.
Arrive at your wedding ceremony by boat, making a grand entrance between the cliffs of Cobbold Gorge. Stand on the sandstone podium in the majestic, natural cathedral to exchange your marriage vows in a truly spectacular setting.
Your unique outback wedding photos are guaranteed to be the envy of every newly-wed couple. The subtle nuances of colour and reflections, cliffs and vegetation of the gorge create unforgettable settings for creative wedding photography. See the Australian outback wedding photography portfolio of Melbourne-based photographer Peter Lorocco for more inspiration.
Everyone loves a good wedding. Our trademark Australian outback hospitality and modern facilities will ensure the bride and groom have the time of their lives celebrating with family and friends.
Indoor and outdoor reception options offer the ultimate versatility with plenty of room for children to run while their parents enjoy the festivities. Our function room is an ideal venue for up to 100 seated guests in a private dining and entertaining area. Menus feature generous, homestyle meals that can be tailored to your specifications and the bar is fully licensed.
A moonlit reception adds an air of intimacy for couples who want to celebrate under the clear night skies for which the Queensland outback is renowned.
No curfews! You're welcome to party as long as you like. A large fireplace on the dam makes for an ideal late nightcap to reflect on a truly memorable wedding ceremony and reception.
The best part is no long drive home at the end of the night: stay in our comfortable accommodation or arrange transfers for guests to the nearby towns of Forsayth.
