TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN – YOUR DREAM WEDDING LOCATION!

Tamborine Mountain is a majestic mountainous plateau some 500 metres above sea level set in the stunning region of the Scenic Rim, amongst lush hinterland between the big city lights of the Gold Coast and Brisbane. With breathtaking views and a lovely climate that affords visitors the joy of experiencing all four seasons – Tamborine Mountain often feels like another world all together, up here in the clouds.

Blessed with rich volcanic soil, almost everything grows here and this alone is one reason why so many couples choose the mountain for their wedding day. What bride doesn’t love a garden with endless flowering delights I ask you? Our brides are often swept of their feet by the floral displays of brilliance that are evident everywhere you look up here. Spring is therefore of course a particularly beautiful and very busy time for weddings on the mountain, but Autumn follows close behind with her amber hues that leave a myriad of leaves underfoot and across the landscape. Summer is then hot on her tails offering enticing warmth and bright greenery, and Winter proves surprisingly popular with her crisp European-like charm and romantic nights by open fireplaces.

One pleasure you can rely on up here in the clouds, despite your season of choice, is the big show-off skies above and fresh mountain air for which Tamborine Mountain is known. On any given day, you may also be graced with cloud cover that floats in like mist and envelopes you, whilst gracing the scenery with another layer of mother nature’s own special brand of magic. For so many countless reasons, you can so easily get swept up in the beauty of these landscapes which exude a grounding feminine force, and we here this time and time again from first time and long time visitors alike, so why don’t you pay us a visit and give this gorgeous mountain a chance at charming you herself!

While you’re here, you simply must have a drive around to experience the many visual delights on offer at each of our picturesque wedding venues. There is something so unique and charming about each and every one…and just like that special moment when you find the dream dress, there is always one venue that stops your heart and feels like ‘the one’.
