Your special day should be an expression of who you are and all that you love. We not only offer wedding facilities and luxurious accommodation surrounded by natural beauty, we offer a stunning location for you to celebrate with the people (and pets) you love from beginning to end.
Bring your unique wedding vision to life by hiring your favourite vendors, caterers, drinks, props and stylist.
With each of our wedding packages you will have exclusive use of the entire 100 acre property, including two nights accommodation in our nine boutique cottages for up to 40 of your wedding guests. Making the time you have to celebrate and connect with each of your guests a holiday away for everyone.
Hold your outdoor wedding ceremony anywhere your hearts sing. Exchange vows in front of the lily-adorned lakes, on the island, on the pool deck overlooking the valley or under a centuries old gum tree, the choice is yours.
For your unforgettable outdoor reception, we offer three packages in two beautiful locations for up to 150 guests. Choose between an intimate reception on our resort style pool deck equipped with an elegant Bedouin stretch tent, perfect for small wedding parties. Or go grand with one of our packages on the lawn, for larger wedding parties, and the flexibility to hire your own marquee.
“You have made our wedding weekend everything we could have hoped for. A spectacular venue that provided both intimacy and natural wonder, we couldn’t have been happier to learn about this beauty tucked away up in the hills! The accommodation set up was perfect and just what we wanted, as we were able to have our family and bridal party close to us all weekend. The spacious outdoor kitchen area allowed us to all get together the night before the wedding, so special and exciting. The grounds and surrounds were spectacular for our wedding photos, and what a glorious way to wake up in the stunning Orara Valley on your wedding day!”Hamish & Ash
“Friday Creek Retreat was a picturesque location to hold our intimate outdoor wedding. The beautiful mountains, vineyard and lush greenery provided the idyllic backdrop for our photos. The cottages and facilities enabled our family to come together to share the occasion. Judy and Stuart (the owners) went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and make our experience a memorable one. We would highly recommend this location for couples looking to marry on the Coffs Coast.”Vanessa & Nathan
“People say third time lucky, but it couldn’t have been any more true for us in terms of wedding venues! We were so, so lucky to have been able to get married and celebrate with our closest family and friends in the most beautiful location. Friday Creek is the most incredible venue and you treated us like family. We can’t wait to be back to see you again.”Laura , Trav & Donnie
“My husband and I got married at Friday Creek Retreat in March 2018. The venue was everything we were looking for and more. We had our ceremony and reception on the grass down by the pond. It was relaxed, spacious and just a gorgeous backdrop for our photos. Would highly recommend Friday Creek Retreat for your wedding. It’s every bit breathtaking and romantic.”Nardie & Phil

“We were thrilled to find a peaceful little retreat only 15 minutes from Coffs Harbour and all the necessities for our planned elopement. Our best laid plans turned into an intimate candlelit wedding, with 40 guests, on the beautiful pool deck overlook the immaculate park like grounds, which gave us the most gorgeous backdrop for our wedding photographs. We could not be happier to recommend beautiful Friday Creek Retreat, as an intimate wedding venue…”Mick & Donna-Lee
