Garapine offers a scenic country wedding location, providing the essentials you need with the flexibility to make it your own. Come and celebrate across a whole weekend (Fri-Sun) or just for the day. Have your ceremony, reception and even accommodation all in the one location.
You might like the idea of a marquee wedding, yet they seem so expensive or you just don’t have the space. Garapine offers something a bit different with amazing scenery, plenty of space and loads of potential while still keeping it affordable.

Garapine is a scenic country property located in the Mary Valley, just 15 minutes south of Gympie, 40 minutes from Noosa or 2 hours from Brisbane. Set high on the hill, the property features spectacular 360° views of the Mary Valley and descends to the Mary River at its base.
Get married outside on The Lawn with beautiful country views. The Lawn is a large flat grassed area that is easily accessible and close to the reception venue. Decorate as much as you like or keep it simple using the beautiful natural backdrop.
We know some great wedding decorators and furniture hire suppliers that can create a unique setting for your big day. Choose your own celebrant or we can provide some suggestions. Our experienced event manager is here to help you and ensure your wedding runs smoothly.
Additional ceremony locations, such as under the fig tree or down by the river, will be available in the near future. We invite you to come for a tour of the property to experience all it has to offer.
The Lodge features a large indoor hall that opens out on to the Deck and the Terrace. The Terrace is our large outdoor, undercover area that looks out to the surrounding views. It’s the perfect spot for sunset drinks or extra space if you have a large number of guests. The Lodge can seat 80 people comfortably inside or approximately 100 people if utilising the Deck as well. We can accommodate even larger groups by seating guests on the Terrace. The Lodge is a very versatile space giving you the flexibility to be creative with your reception.
If you would like to DIY decorate the hall, this can be a great way to save money, or hire a fantastic local decorator to do it all, the choice is yours.
To ensure you have a delicious meal on your special day, Garapine recommends using experienced and qualified external caterers who can provide you with menu and pricing options to suit your needs.
Thinking of something a bit different? Our outdoor areas create the perfect atmosphere for a pig on the spit, a New Zealand Hangi or delicious wood fired pizza. Get creative and talk to us today about your food ideas.
Garapine has three double-storey Chalets (accommodation buildings) perched high on the hill with amazing views of the Mary Valley.
Each Chalet has four bunk rooms (two upstairs, two downstairs) consisting of bunk beds and single beds. Each room has its own bathroom featuring two showers and a separate toilet as well as a deck over looking the valley.
Eleven bunk rooms are available for guests, accommodating up to 105 people. The twelfth bunk room is converted so it can be used by the bridal party before the wedding and provides a bit more comfort for the newlyweds to stay overnight.
