Venue Review: Coolum Beach Surf Club

Oh to relax on a sprawling deck, overlooking the ocean as the sun sets on your magical Coolum Beach wedding day. How simply splendid this would be!

If it’s absolute waterfront you’re hankering for, well this is the perfect Sunshine Coast wedding venue for you. Coolum Beach Surf Club is set right in the middle of one of the most beautiful spots on the Sunshine Coast. And that is saying a lot, since we are hit smack bang in our faces with natural beauty every which way we turn in our beautiful-one-day-perfect-the-next piece of the globe. 

The function room at the Coolum Beach Surf Club can cater for up to 100 for a sit down dinner. There is space for a dance floor and a band, and you also have exclusive access to your own deck overlooking the ocean for the duration of your reception. 

There is a lot of great accommodation options within very close walking distance – everything from holiday houses and luxury apartments to a caravan park. 

If you choose this fantastic venue for your beach wedding, you will be assigned your very own wedding coordinator to take you through the process every step of the way and ensure your wedding runs smoothly on the day. The executive chef creates delicious wedding reception menus of canapes and three course meals your guests will absolutely love, along with the fully staffed bar! The Surf Club has very affordable wedding package options available that will really surprise you (and delight the person/s fitting the bill!)

More details below the photos. Enjoy!
