What an amazing and beautiful place. Our Wedding was perfect and this was thanks to Channing, Dan and Bryce. Not only is the venue a beautiful place with breathtaking views, the service was exceptional. From the beginning it was a stress free experience, everything was looked after by the team at Glengariff. From the first meeting to the end of the of the night. The food was absolutely delicious and the packages offered by Glengariff was amazing. Well worth the money! Channing and Dan were so friendly, organised and very professional and nothing was too difficult for them. They went out of their way to make this the most amazing day ever. From Jess and Nate

We held our wedding here in late 2018; Bryce and Channing (not Tatum) did a great job and made us feel like everything was being taken care of. The venue was simply amazing, and the food options we chose were fantastic. Sure to make any couple swoon when they visit this venue for their wedding!!

Recently photographed a wedding at Glengariff and was extremely impressed. The staff were polite, helpful and friendly, keeping the bride and groom happy and asking how they could assist me with photos. I look forward to working here again!

Absolutely love this venue, my partner Nick and I got married here 1 week ago and everything was perfect. It was completely stress free thanks to Channing and Dan. All our guests raved about the food and they accommodated well to gluten free. Would recommend to everyone to have their special day here!

I had the pleasure of holding a recent Bridal Styled Shoot at Glengariff Historic Estate. The property is just breath taking and has so many gorgeous photography opportunity locations. Channing and her staff throughout the entire process were just lovely and incredibly accommodating. Glengariff Historic Estate is the perfect location for your fairytale wedding. Highly recommend this beautiful venue. ~ Janette Newell | Olive Rose Weddings & Events

We had our wedding here last week and perfection does no justice in describing this establishment. The staff could not do enough, and nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent, the scenery fantastic and the attention to detail was above and beyond anything I could have imagined. I cannot pick apart one Hong that went wrong on the day and I have had nothing but the highest praises from all my guests about how beautiful the venue was, how great the service was and how AMAZING the food was. Thank you Channing and Dan for creating a perfect day for us xxx

Best School Formal Venue Brisbane

Our historic estate is on a stunning property with a breathtaking outlook that is sure to provide a memorable backdrop for what is one of the biggest celebrations in a teenager’s life. There are plenty of photo opportunities for the students, with the Terrace area just one of the perfect spots for Instagram worthy snaps.

We offer all-inclusive packages, which consist of meals and unlimited soft drinks. DJs are also included, and we take away the extra hassle by booking them in for the event on your behalf.

We can also provide a memorable arrival for students with a red-carpet entry right at our front door. This means your students can show off their mode of transport – one of the most highly anticipated school formal traditions – whether that’s a classic car or limousine.

These events are typically planned to last about five hours, but we are flexible to discuss specific requirements with you.
