Not every big day is all that big…
Ceremonies that follow onto a reception are available 7 days a week. Ceremony only bookings are available in our Elopement Packages, Mondays to Thursdays only. Learn about elopements:
The food and service were impeccable.
The deck itself was the perfect location whilst being covered and protected and providing the outdoor feel we were after. Set against a gorgeous backdrop, looking out over the trees and creek and above the animal sanctuary
What an amazing wedding space, it was everything I could have imagined. The lawn was so stunning and loved that our whole wedding could just be at one space, no additional travel.
Planning a wedding is supposed to be stressful but the whole process was a walk in the park! Communication was amazing from the very first day, and nothing was ever too much of a hassle. If you are looking to plan your perfect day, look no further!
A beautiful venue in the forest for a wedding. The reception for 100 plus guests was well organised and wait staff were attentive and helpful.
Walkabout creek was exactly what we wanted when booking a wedding venue. Nothing was too much or too little and we had so much flexibility when it came to styling, food, and beverage packages, which we found refreshing when comparing it to other venues.
We had our wedding reception at Walkabout and it was a beautiful night! It’s a stunning location, with great catering and a great team who go above and beyond for you!
The wonderful staff that arranged our wedding did an amazing job, the venue was beautiful. The staff were friendly, professional and punctual and the food was delicious. Highly recommend this venue to friends and family.
Walkabout Creek was our dream wedding destination. Food was incredible, the staff were lovely and very accommodating. 6 months later and our guests are still raving about the best wedding they have ever been to!
Incredible venue and staff to match. We had the best day and couldn’t thank the staff enough for all their hard work to make our special day. The place is breathtaking.
Can I have just my ceremony here?
Friday, Saturdays and Sundays we do not offer ceremony only bookings, sorry! They are reserved for weddings that also have a reception.
Monday to Thursdays we welcome ceremonies for less than 50 people as elopements! Check out our elopement packages.
Where do we go to take photos?
We can provide you with tips for the best locations near the venue. Your photographers can use this as a guide, but don’t be surprised if they suss out spaces of their own, as the time of day and season can affect the quality of light and therefore affect the suitability of these locations.
Some of best spots are “off the beaten track”. You may wish to pack a bag with flat shoes for all the girls, and a white towel/ cloth (something that will blend with the dresses) to protect your outfits if you need to sit on the ground or another surface.

What will my guests do when we are taking photos?
Each package includes grazing boards for guests to eat prior to the reception. You may opt to start the beverage package at this time to get the festivities going (which is an additional $11pp), or you can choose to have cash bar for guests to purchase their own drinks over this period.
If your photographer suggests longer than an hour for wedding photos, you may wish to add additional catering for guests to occupy themselves with over this extended period.

Can we have a ceremony rehearsal?
Yes! Anytime we do not have a wedding a rehearsal is permitted and complimentary. Please be in touch with your co-ordinator to book one in.
Is power supplied in the ceremony spaces?
The Lakeview Ceremony Stage and The Lawn do not have power available, so your celebrant will need to bring a battery-operated portable PA system. Don’t stress, all our recommended celebrants own them!
What music do I need for my ceremony?
It is always nice to set the mood as your guests arrive to your ceremony, so having some light background music is always an effective touch. You may need to assign a trusted friend or relative to control the music for you, please discuss this with your celebrant. They will find it useful if you separate your music into playlists for the different parts of your ceremony, labelled as such: 1. Pre-Ceremony (30-45mins – easy-listening music, think Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, Adele) 2. Procession (1 song you will walk down the aisle to) 3. Signing the Registry (3 songs – this takes longer than you think!) 4. Recession (1 song – happy, celebratory) Alternatively, you can hire musicians to play.
Can I throw confetti at my ceremony?
Bubbles and ribbon wands are a great idea! If we have organised a carpet or aisle runner at your ceremony, confetti of any kind is not permitted. Sadly, petals can stain, and small leaves get stuck in the carpet fibres. If you do not have a carpet, a small amount of natural leaf confetti or light-coloured petals are permitted. Artificial and biodegradable confetti are not permitted due to being in a National Park. We ask for a small amount only, as your confetti will be blown into the gardens and will be visible at other weddings.
What do we do if it rains?
As a team, we decide the location of your ceremony about 2 hours before your ceremony is due to start. You are to provide the contact name and number of the best person for your coordinator to call and discuss with. Ultimately the decision is yours (you can do it outside under umbrellas!) but we will provide expert advice and a complimentary set-up undercover if need be.
Is there wheelchair access to the ceremony spaces?
Can I have my dog at the ceremony or during photos?
As we are located inside a National Park, unfortutantely there is a strict no dog policy.
