The ultimate wedding host
Gabbinbar Homestead
Gabbinbar Homestead; peaceful elegance steeped in history.
Gabbinbar Homestead building
A building from a bygone era.
Gabbinbar Homestead's romantic outdoor setting is perfect to host an elegant and carefree wedding.

Hidden away from the busy street behind Australian bushland, the twenty-five acres house historic buildings including old-time country stables.

Ceremonies can be conducted in a large number of areas. Rusticity, a giant chess game and historic buildings are only a few of the photo opportunities.

Under a mature tree with spreading boughs you may exchange your vows or perhaps in the charming gazebo or simply the grassed area surrounded by trees bearing glass globes of flowers. Evening weddings under the hanging lanterns are a romantic option.

While awaiting the bridal party during photo time, guests may play croquet or tennis as an alternative to enjoying gourmet hors d'oeuvres.

Gabbinbar House was established in 1863, built by Reverend Nelson. His son, a Premier of Queensland, Sir Hugh Nelson inherited Gabbinbar and offered it as a resort for the State's Governors. 'Gabbinbar' is an Aboriginal word which means 'peaceful place'.

Warm smiles from attentive staff welcome you while surrounded with elegance, historic beauty, peaceful ambience and contemporary wedding decorations.

At Gabbinbar Homestead everything will run smoothly so that you can relax and enjoy your special day while all your unique requirements are catered to.
