Amazing venue - An Eventective User

We had our wedding there on July.14th and it was everything we could have dreamed of. Megan was the event coordinator and was like a built in wedding planner as well! The venue is naturally decorated and the scenery is stunning. You can do any style wedding from small elopement, to medium size party to huge wedding and reception. Highly recommended.

Gorgeous Venue! - An Eventective User from Victoria

Stunning surroundings - the Gardens is a perfect backdrop to the gorgeous steel, glass and timber outline of the Pavilion. Perfect size for our event of 100. Two minor negatives are the size of the parking lot (small!), and lack of range in kitchen to prepare food. Nonetheless, we found workarounds and enjoyed ourselves immensely!
