Host your wedding in Queensland’s beautiful Scenic Rim region and let love bloom amidst its romantic backdrop and unspoiled beauty.
Named as a Lonely Planet Top Destination for 2022, this thriving rural paradise is set in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and surrounded by World Heritage-listed national parks – the perfect destination for a beautiful country wedding. It really is a hidden gem of charming country towns, breathtaking landscapes, and cultural heritage that stretches from the Gold Coast Hinterland, including the country destinations of Beaudesert, Boonah, Tamborine Mountain, Kooralbyn, Beechmont, Kalbar, Aratula, Canungra, Rathdowney, Harrisville and Peak Crossing. From the rolling rural hills to the magnificent mountain ranges, every corner of this enchanting destination exudes an air of romance, setting the scene for an exceptional wedding celebration (and romantic honeymoon!) like no other.
There is a thriving collection of venues, including country homesteads, chapels, and mountain-top places, and the region is bursting with local wedding experts who are on hand to help you pull off the most fantastic wedding celebration you can imagine. With its proximity to the Gold Coast and Brisbane, guests can either make the easy drive there and back or take advantage of one of the many country cabins available as wedding guest accommodation.
For wedding couples, we suggest you spend time exploring the area prior to your celebration to familiarise yourselves with the majestic natural beauty of the region. Traverse the country roads to explore all of your venue options; treat yourself to a picnic by the picturesque Lake Moogerah as you discuss your wedding planning details, enjoy country hospitality during a stay at a unique B&B or cabin, or take a leisurely hike along the Tamborine Mountain trails, hand in hand, imagining how special your day will be when you exchange vows against the backdrop of lush rainforests or a Scenic Rim stunning sunset.
The splendour of the Scenic Rim is the ideal backdrop for a truly magical and memorable wedding experience.
