Wedding Venue in Tropical North Queensland Like No Other

October 10, 2013 2:14 PM

Great Barrier Reef…, sandy beaches…, Rainforest are some of the images we commonly associate with Tropical North Queensland but quite often we tend to forget our beautiful outback North Queensland.

Hidden away, on the Cairns Tablelands in the Mareeba valley, just an hour away from the city is a beautiful property by the name of ‘Ringers Rest’.

This family property is owned by Dave Berry and is managed by himself and his daughter Tammy.

‘Ringers Rest’ is a dream location for a wedding (or any other gatherings such as birthday parties, family reunion and corporate functions); the surroundings are stunning and the level of care and service you will get from Dave and Tammy’s team is unbelievable.

If seclusion and serenity are what you are after then look no further! The feeling you get once you arrive is one of ‘relaxation’.


  The function ‘Room’

When you book ‘Ringers Rest’ you are guaranteed the exclusive use of the property. The function ‘room’ can fit 120 guests (further seating can be arranged) and has been fitted with polished handcrafted timber tables to reflect this picturesque setting. ‘Ringers Rest’ gives you a lot of flexibility as far as setting up and decorations are concerned; you can take it as far as your imagination takes you. Take a look at the photos below…

The function ‘room’ is located near the most gorgeous bush chapel known as the ‘Hitchin’Rail’. To fully embrace what ‘Ringers Rest’ is all about, take a stroll through the property and discover relics from the past while observing the local wildlife. This is truly an amazing décor for a wedding.

The ‘Hitchin’ Rail’

‘Ringers Rest’ is available for morning (you will love their ‘Recovery Breakfast’), lunch and evening functions. Function facilities include a kitchen with BBQs and ovens large enough to accommodate a chef and his/her catering business (or you have the option of self-catering), there are also BYO bar facilities.

The property has an RV/Campground area giving you the option to stay the night if you wish, but if this is not a suitable option, there are many accommodation providers in the region, click here for more information. There is also ample space for large coaches to park if you wish to commute with your wedding guests from any location to ‘Ringers Rest’.

To complete this picture perfect wedding venue, imagine arriving in a horse-drawn sulky before walking down the aisle to be married to the love of your life in the bush chapel (aka the ‘Hitchin’ Rail’)

As well as being a fantastic wedding venue ‘Ringers Rest’ is also a great back drop for your wedding photos.
