Gabbi & Caleb

“Caleb and I had our wedding ceremony at Tailrace in January 2023. We were so pleased with not only the venue, but with how helpful and attentive all the staff were. I was able to email all my questions, and get a quick response, as well as the venue being available for me to visit and ask any questions in person when I needed. The staff were helpful and professional on the day, and ensured everything ran smoothly and as planned. Such a beautiful venue for a wedding, we would definitely recommend!”

“Wilson and I just got married at Tailrace on the 6th of November 2022. We had the best day of our lives, not just us, but our guests as well. Everyone enjoyed the food! It was amazing, top-class! And Sharon whom we first met one year ago when we enquired the place as a venue for our wedding is absolutely the most lovely person I’ve ever met. She’s so patient, kind, genuine and so easy to work with. All her staff were amazing and detailed to attentions and great at responding to your needs! They made our wedding journey a whole lot easier and less stressful. They’ve also went above and beyond to cater to what we want to have on our wedding day!”

We were absolutely blown away with tailrace. Their communication was fantastic, the ladies were easy to talk to and deal with. The location was STUNNING! Our ceremony was perfect! We really could not have asked for anything more. We got married in the gardens down the bottom, it was peaceful, private and a gorgeous spot once everything come together!! Thankyou Sharon, Lauren & team. We are very blessed xx

"Absolutely amazing wedding venue! We came from Melbourne 3 days prior to our Wedding day and the tailrace had everything organised for us in advance. The reception room was set up and looked absolutely beautiful, the ceremony was outdoors in their beautiful lush gardens and the event planners were so helpful. They literally organised everything from start to finish. We didn’t have to think about a thing apart from turning up and having the best day ever. Ceremony, reception, celebrant, food, alcohol, staff, decorations ABSOLUTELY everything is done for you via the venue with so much flexibility. Our day was nothing short of perfect and felt absolutely magical!!! I just want to relive this day over and over. The Tailrace are incredible at making this journey stress free and perfect!"
