15th April 2019

Flaxton Gardens has recently celebrated ten years as a wedding venue. It remains one of the Sunshine Coast's most popular wedding venues, and with good reason.

One of the hinterland’s longest standing venues, the iconic venue still flaunts some of its original colonial structure in the historical homestead. Set on acreage, the property now has all the mod cons for comfort as well as charm. Flaxton Gardens is known for its fabulous food and the ultimate romantic setting for a wedding on the range.

Ceremony Spaces

The Gardens

Flaxton Gardens is famous for its incredible views all the way to the coastline, which provide the perfect backdrop for the wedding ceremony where you want to feel like you’re a world away from the everyday. There are multiple options –the more country feel complete with charming windmill, or the uninterrupted clean views.

The Gazebo

For a more intimate ceremony, the Restaurant Gazebo is a quaint option, which is well protected. This is a lovely option for an elopement. 

Wet Weather Option

If wet weather arises, the Barrel Room allows complete confidence your ceremony will go ahead as planned.Jennifer Oliphant Photographer_059Studio Impressions Photography W00180_CJ160618 -Jennifer Oliphant Photographer_058

The Restaurant

Light and bright, the Restaurant dining room is perfect for a more intimate wedding of up to 60 guests. Your guests will appreciate the fine dining with menu designed by chef and owner, Alan Thompson and the restaurant’s head chef. The pair take their inspiration from the wealth of fresh produce available in the hinterland region.

Photo Ops

At Flaxton Gardens

Onsite at Flaxton Gardens, there is a photo op with every turn of the head. The Gazebo can be utilised as both a ceremony spot and a sweet space to have photos. Make sure to take a stroll in the vineyard for some sweet shots. Of course you can’t go past the views of rolling hills over the hinterland all the way out to the ocean and Moreton Island.


The Sunshine Coast hinterland is lousy with pretty places your photographer will definitely have already scoped out. The iconic One Tree Hill is always a popular spot to take photos with the backdrop of the Glass House Mountains, there are pretty gardens galore, there’s even a secret tree-lined driveway that all the local photographers seek out to get the perfectly lit shot. 

In the Evening

Take a moment to have a sneaky photo under the festoon lights outside under the expansive sky. On a balmy night, with a light breeze coming up over the hinterland hills, you won’t find a more romantic setting.
