What time can the reception start and finish?
Your start and finish times are flexible! We include 6hours of venue hire in our reception packages. This usually runs from 4:00-10:00pm, 4:30-10:30pm or 5:00-11:00pm. We can run as late as midnight (12:00am), with venue hire and beverage package extensions available for $21 per person per hour.
Can you suggest a schedule for our wedding?
Yes! Our wedding coordinators can suggest the perfect schedule for your day. The time of the ceremony, location photos and the reception depends what season your wedding is in and can vary depending on the locations you pick.
Including a 1.5hr ceremony, your wedding runs for 7.5hrs total. Here are sample schedules:
SPRING & AUTMUMN: 3:00-10:30pm
How does your wedding coordinator assist us?
When you book, you will be allocated a wedding coordinator. They will be your point of contact throughout planning. Feel free to call, email or organise a meeting any time. We are here to help, and happy to chat!
On the day, your wedding coordinator will be present for the ceremony and start of the reception, greeting your suppliers and ensuring everything is set as you have outlined. You will then be handed over to an event supervisor who will be your point of contact for the rest of the evening, and the party! Your event supervisor will liase with your MC and other suppliers to ensure you have a fantastic night.
Can I style the wedding myself?
Yes absolutely, if you’re a DIY couple, show your creative flair! You are guaranteed access to your room from 9am on the day. However, a word of caution – don’t bite off more than you can chew. Choose centrepieces that can be assembled easily or aren’t too fiddly. You’ll have enough to do on the morning of your wedding other than worrying about the reception styling. Also remember access to the room may be limited to the day of the wedding when you’ll be getting hair and make-up done.
And yes, our staff will ensure your candles and lit.
Can I come in the day before my wedding and do the set up myself?
You may, depending on what the venue has booked in the day/s preceding your wedding. Sometimes it’s not possible, especially when we have a wedding the night before yours. Budget and plan for your friends, family, or our staff to set it up on the day, and then if you’re able to, it will be a bonus!
Can the venue store my decorations for me after my wedding?
Walkabout Creek has limited storage, so any large items or items of value (gifts, wishing well contents etc) will need to be taken home on the night. Smaller items and leftover cake can be stored overnight, provided they are collected by 12pm the next day.
Does the venue print my seating chart and place cards?
No, the venue does not print your seating chart or your place cards. These need to be supplied by you if you choose to have them. The seating chart needs to be printed in A2, preferably in portrait to be suitable for our easel and our frames.
Can we play our own music at the reception?
Yes, all three of our reception spaces include a sound system to play your own music. Simply bring along a device with the music ready to go. You will need to allocate the job of starting and stopping music to a friend, family member or your MC.
Are the reception spaces wheelchair friendly?
Yes, all three of our reception locations are wheelchair friendly. Please note we do not supply or hire wheelchairs.
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!
Great for kids. The highlight was the special animal show.
Great spot for a drink or a meal. Cafe serves lovely food and the location is ideal for feeling miles away from the city.
The water is nice and cool perfect for families the food is good too. If I could put 10 stars I would. From Hamish, 10 years old
Amazing food. Friendly and efficient service!! Live artist Naomi Connell was amazing!! ❤️❤️
We booked the Banksia Room at the Walkabout Creek Cafe for our work staff conference with 20 people, and couldn’t be happier with the experience. The venue was great, the service was great and the food was awesome. Hoping to be back soon!
Nice spot…huge deck area, a good place to meet up for a chat with a friend…or before/after you use the amazing lake-part of Walkabout Creek (kayak/stand-up paddle board/swim/hike/ chill).
