Venue Testimonials

The team at Coolibah Downs were so accommodating and wonderful to work with. I was so pleased with the landscape and surroundings, decorations and food and beverages. The lush gardens, patio, swing and bridge were all beautiful places for pictures and it was so romantic.

Coolibah Downs is an absolutely beautiful venue. We wanted something out in nature, and this fit perfectly. Really supportive and knowledgeable staff. We had a mostly vegan buffet, which was a hit with all the guests. They made sure we had nothing to stress about on the day.

I fell in love with this venue the second I saw it. Can not fault Coolibah Downs in any way, they were amazing leading up to the wedding day, absolutely perfect on the wedding day and even touched base afterwards. Highly recommend this venue to all couples! Thank you for everything.
