A Magical Rainforest Wedding Venue
Surrounded by World Heritage listed rainforest and with nothing spared on luxury, Misty Mountains Rainforest Retreat is one of the most magical rainforest wedding venues in Queensland. Our guests consistently confirm this in their reviews.
'The most romantic place imaginable.'
'We got married under a magnificent 300 year old fig tree in an open air chapel in the rainforest standing in a circle of jade flowers.' My Perfect Wedding magazine.
'Our wedding could not have been better.'
'We could not find a more stunning location and venue to have our tropical wedding and reception.'
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.

Spring (September through November) has warm days and balmy nights. Some couples love the misty and warm wet season in February and March. Rain is more common at this time of year.
