'The Lookout' Reception Pad

Have you always dreamed of a wedding reception that’s a little bit different, truly reflects you as a couple, not so “generic” or "cookie-cutter" and definitely one that your guests will remember and cherish for years to come? Then that’s why our boutique and exclusive blank canvas venue is just for you. The elevated purpose built 30m x 13m flat lawn reception area 'The Lookout' is the perfect place to erect your reception cover of choice. Options are Single or Double Kata Tipi's, Clear or White Marquee's, Sperry Tents, Barn Style Pavilion's, Mongolian Yurt Huts, Nomadic Bedoin Tents, Dome Marquee or Alfresco style open aired under stings of festoon lights. The reception space can accommodate additional lounge area, dance floor and bar area to either side of the temporary structure. Flexibility for you to chose and book what suits you as a couple for your taste, theme and budget (hire of temporary structure to be arranged by couple separately to venue).

The fully powered and elevated site overlooks the Coomera River and creates the perfect backdrop to celebrate with family and friends. The Reception area is next to a large tree that is lit up as the sun goes down whilst the immaculate grounds and gardens are yours to roam and utilise to their full advantage with stone steps, cosy seating areas and romantic swings all complimenting this private property and giving you uninterrupted privacy to enjoy your wedding event all in the one location.

The flat riverbed area below the elevated Reception site can be utilised for a late night bonfire or afternoon canape area with possability of a tipi bar, casual lounges, rugs and fun garden games such as Croquet, Boca or if you’re really keen, a friendly game of Badminton or Volley Ball.
