    "My husband and I were fortunate enough to have our wedding at Gabbinbar Homestead in August 2017. To say that it was the best day of my life would be an understatement! All of the staff go above and beyond to ensure everyone has an amazing time. ‘The Gabbinbar Experience’ really does live up to it’s name. The grounds were immaculate, the food was amazing and the staff were so diligent in their service. Gabbinbar literally took care of everything, I barely touched a thing on the morning of our wedding day! Nothing was ever an issue and all of the staff were so lovely and helpful. A special thank you to the Wedding Planning Team who were always so helpful with any questions and requests. I cannot recommend Gabbinbar Homestead enough! Thank you for the most magical day."

    "We just wanted to say thank you to the Wedding Planning Team as well as ALL of the Gabbinbar staff for making our wedding day so much more amazing than we ever imagined. We really appreciated all of the support provided during the wedding planning process and we really appreciate everyone's effort on the day. From tying the name tags on the ceremony chairs to controlling the music, you guys had it all covered. One staff member even went into the Bride's Retreat to calm my dog down because she heard him crying. We loved how the staff lined up outside in the cold to wave us goodbye as we drove off. We are all so pleased with Gabbinbar's service! Thank you so much for making our wedding day the best day ever!"

    "From the first viewing, Gabbinbar was a cut above the rest. Promising unparalleled service, the team at Gabbinbar delivered nothing less and made our dreams a reality. Our special day was literally faultless and our guests were treated like royalty with everyone commenting how diligent Gabbinbar staff were. Glasses were never empty! The only thing that matched the stunningly manicured grounds and meticulous setup, was the support from the team during the planning process. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the planners at Gabbinbar accommodated our every hope for the day. We even changed our last dance location to the woods one hour beforehand! If you want the best for your day, Gabbinbar Homestead must be at the top of your list! Kylie and I thank you for making our day such a special and unforgettable event in our lives."

    "We are a Switzerland based couple who came home to Australia for our wedding at Gabbinbar Homestead in early December 2016. Planning from a distance was made easy with the Gabbinbar team. Timely and efficient phone meetings were held and documents made easy to access.

    On the day, the venue was beautifully set out. The staff were extremely helpful and discreet and we were really able to relax and enjoy the day with family and friends. We had international guests so particularly wanted a venue that had an Australian atmosphere and aesthetic, mixed with elegance and ease - Gabbinbar was all of those things for us. Our guests loved spending time there (the cricket match was a hit!) and so did we.

    Thanks again for helping the day run so well. We loved it! Highly recommend."

As someone who is not a part of the bridal party, I must say that I have never seen such impeccable service at even the best hotels.

It suited both of our personalities. The attention to detail & small touches made it feel more personal. The food was delicious & the wine flowed freely. Everyone commented on how exceptional the Gabbinbar experience was, we had guests from London, Cambodia & Outback Australia.

    I would like to make special mention how you went above & beyond the call of duty for my flower bouquet. You saved the day fixing my second bouquet in time for the ceremony.

One in particular went out after dark with a torch and kept searching and found the missing earing. Now that is taking care of the guests to an extra level. Well done. Great service and care all round in a magnificent venue."

    "We always enjoy driving out to Toowoomba to film weddings at Gabbinbar Homestead. Whether it is a beautiful sunny day or a rainy wet day we always achieve amazing results with Gabbinbar's stunning well kept gardens.

    As far as photography locations go you are really spoilt for choice, everywhere you point your camera is a beautiful photo.

    With plenty of cover around the Homestead, wet weather is not a problem and even can add to the beauty and rustic charm of the venue.

    Another nice thing about filming at Gabbinbar is that you can tell the staff really enjoy working there which is not always the case with wedding venues. The staff are friendly and courteous and will go out of their way to make you feel special.

    I highly recommend everyone consider Gabbinbar Homestead as a possible wedding venue for your special day."

    "Thank you to the amazing team at Gabbinbar Homestead for giving us the most magical wedding day.

    Our friends and family have not stopped talking about how incredible it was, how beautiful the venue was and how professional the staff are.

    Daniel and myself knew Gabbinbar Homestead was the place for our wedding, it was the first and only venue we looked at.

    We cannot thank you all enough for all your hard work."

    "A big, big, thank you to you all for your hosting of our wedding. Since the very first email you've made it all so easy, especially when organising from interstate.

    The estate is just gorgeous and we can tell how much you care for the property. Even with such bizarre cold and wet weather in January, it was still magic and whilst we didn't plan on using The Pavilion, nobody would have guessed that it was our "plan b" and we didn't give it a second thought.

    The food was delicious, we've had so many people tell us that it was by far the best food they've ever had at a wedding, many compliments to the chef! All of your wait staff were fabulous and again we received so many compliments that you are deserving of.

    Special mention goes to the Wedding Planners. From working out the timing for the processional, arranging cups of tea, going out to buy shawls for us because we're all freezing, insisting that I wipe my hands on her cardigan as I'm about to walk down the aisle because the bouquet was still wet. All the time so calm, pleasant and incredibly patient. We left everything there and can't believe you had it so neatly packed up and ready to collect in the morning. Thank you, it couldn't have been any simpler for us"

    You would not believe the comments we have had on how magical our beautiful day was and it was all because of the hard work and effort put in by your lovely ladies and the team on the day.

    Kellan and I could not recommend Gabbinbar enough as such a special venue for all future brides and grooms. It could not have been a more perfect choice!

    The service, atmosphere and attentiveness of the staff on the day was second to none and was definitely the talk of the room, other than the Bride and Groom of course!

    Beyond the most beautiful place to get married. Couldn't be more full of praise for the staff and service standards."

    "I recently attended a wedding at Gabbinbar Homestead and was very impressed with the beautiful gardens and the lovely stately house with both its cosy sitting rooms and its gorgeous dining room. I was especially impressed by the excellent service we all received with great attention to details. For example, on noticing that I and a nephew were vegetarian, one of the young waiting staff ensured that we were provided with the vegetarian options. The food was also very good, with tasty treats and loads of variety. The venue catered for both the dancers among us as well as those who wished a quiet corner to have those catch up conversations. Thank you for a lovely experience and I am sure that the Bride and Groom would have been pleased with the trouble you all went to, to make their wedding very special for all of us! Thank You."

Your staff all went above and beyond to make us feel like we were the only wedding you were working on and the absolute attention to detail did not go un-noticed.

    The amount of guests who have spoken only good things about your wait staff, the venue, the food, the atmosphere and the entire evening, is unreal. We have been blown away with the response from our guests and we can truly say that most of that is all thanks to you guys.

    You helped us bring our dream wedding to fruition!

    We have heard that some of your wait staff picked up on the fact that a few of our guests had dietary requirements that we did not know about, and it was no problem to bring them out different meals. This changed the experience for those guests and made them feel so loved and appreciated as a guest. Thank you to your staff for listening out for the little comments and acting on them straight away. These little details take your entire experience at Gabbinbar from being great to outstanding."
