With dramatic mountain views and lush green forest as your backdrop, both you and your guests, will feel the magnitude of your vows in this remarkable setting.

Tucked in the valleys of the Gold Coast Hinterland, entrenched in nature with a bubbling creek and a backdrop of vines draped in this season’s grapes, is O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards.

Meet Elise and Brad who celebrated their marriage with friends and family, champagne and canapes, in front of the 100-year-old heritage listed homestead at O’Reilly’s Vineyards.

For those hoping to capture some historic splendour, the homestead venue is complete with nine-foot iron pressed ceilings and ideal for smaller parties of 30 to 70 guests.

Or for those with bigger numbers, you can have your reception in the white dressed Marquee, with wooden floors and chandelier lighting, or perhaps you would like the rustic charm of the Wine Cellar.

Complete with vineyard acreage and lush green mountain views, Canungra Valley Vineyards makes for a magical wedding reception steeped in beauty …  and I’m not just talking about the bride!

Back on top of the mountain, the private Lost World Conference Centre & Terrace at O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat seats up to 150 guests and includes a bar and terrace with breathtaking views over an infinity pool to the McPherson and Great Dividing Ranges.
