Other useful facts about this Brisbane wedding venue
- Convenient parking is available at QUT.
- Ramp and wheelchair accessible amenities in close proximity to the main house. There is a wheelchair car park directly behind the building.
- There is a wet weather backup plan – your garden ceremony can move inside the main house should the weather be wet. The bay windows inside the cottage allow for garden feel regardless of weather and ample light for photos/videography.
- Incredibly, this venue is a “profit for purpose social enterprise”! Profits from weddings and events go directly to supporting Wise Foundation inititaves. One recent initative was the “Bee Lafaek Program” providing water purifcation systems to Timor locals in the form of a micro business, allowing them to sell clean water to the villages while achieving financial independence.
