- Highlife Magazine - Gordon Country Weddings

Anyone planning a wedding knows how important it is to find that perfect venue for the big day. For the discerning bride, the reception venue at Gordon Country is a definite must see. Having heard the cry for venues that will cater to full weekend weddings, the eco-tourism property situated on the Darling Downs now specialises in weekend getaway weddings.

With a fascinating history, this 4000 acre working cattle station opened its doors to farm stays and camping in the 1970s. Located in the picturesque Goomburra Valley, Gordon Country Weddings offers couples the convenience of having their ceremony, reception and accommodation all onsite.

The reception venue, aptly named the Rivergums Barn, mixes the best of traditional features with modern day luxuries. Surrounded by huge gum trees and on the banks of the creek, the outdoor beer garden and veranda rival the best views and surrounds in Queensland. Fashioned after the old barns and woolsheds of Australia’s heritage, the Rivergums Barn also boasts a commercial kitchen and serviceable bar.

If you’re looking for more activities for your guests to enjoy, the region lends itself nicely to four wheel driving, horse riding and bush walks. If a weekend wedding getaway is what you’re after, the Two Day Country loving package might be the perfect fit. This should give you the luxury of ample RnR time, so that you have plenty of time with your family and the stress of your big day melts away.

With a great range of accommodation options, including self-contained cabins and unlimited camping, catering for up to 150 people, Gordon Country is the perfect place to say “I do”.
