UNLOCKING THE SECRET TO TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN’S TOP WEDDING VENUES

Tamborine Mountain is Australia’s Premier Wedding Destination and its location here in South East Queensland is unrivalled in terms of what it offers couples for their big day! There is so much packed into the plateau’s compact footprint (just 28 square kilometres) that we’re sure it’d rank right at the top of the most highly concentrated region for wedding venues across the whole country.

‘Tamborine Mountain was inhabited by Aborigines for tens of thousands of year and, at the time of early European settlement, lay in the territory of the Wangerriburras. The origin of the name Tamborine comes from the Anglicised version of the Aboriginal word ‘Jambreen’ from the Yugambeh language. The spelling also appears on early records as Tchambreem and even Goombireen, which means ‘wild limeĀ and refers to the finger lime trees growing on the mountain. The geological origin of the plateau is a lava flow from the Mount Warning volcanic eruption 22 million years ago. Tamborine Mountain rises at the start of the north-east section of the Scenic Rim, the name given to a group of mountains in South East Queensland.’

Today, Tamborine Mountain remains an ever present tranquil setting, with great pride of place and a celebratory feeling of attachment to nature. When we talk to our couples, we always find that these are common qualities that people look for in a location to mark their coming together as they make their commitment to one another in marriage and start a whole new chapter in their life together. The place you choose to make your vows will remain a very special and significant part of your life and coming back to visit for anniversaries and to bring your children will further enhance those memories and re-affirm your love for one another in the process.

So we know that Tamborine Mountain itself is a spectacular location, being just 45 minutes drive from the Gold Coast and 1hr from Brisbane; boasting four ‘full’ and proper seasons throughout the year (yes, it really happens), a cooler climate due to its 525m elevation above sea level that means less humidity (let’s face it, who doesn’t want to be a bit cooler on their wedding day – and Tamborine Mountain is always about 4-5 degrees cooler than the Gold Coast or Brisbane) and jaw-dropppingly stunning views all around from country, hinterland, valleys, mountains and sea – now let us show you the incredible range of wedding venues that this gorgeous plateau also just happens to be home to. You are going to be amazed at the variety of venues and locations that you can choose from in such a small area, it really is quite amazing…be prepared, if you haven’t found your dream venue yet, you just might stumble upon it below.
