Located near Cairns, Queensland, by the Great Barrier Reef, you and your guests will want for nothing in this isolated paradise. Your guests have many activities to choose from in the region – a day out on the Great Barrier Reef, whitewater rafting, hot air ballooning, fishing charters, or waterfall trails.
We are happy to help with ideas when decorating your rainforest wedding venue. Imagine a marquee festooned with fairy lights in a tropical garden, old growth rainforest, flame torches, a swimming lagoon lit from within, flower petals, bouquets of orchids, forest fern and honeycomb candles... Whatever your tastes, we can create an enchanting atmosphere and unforgettable experience for you and your guests.
