1. South east Queensland is renowned for lower temperatures.
Let’s be honest summer in some areas of Australia can be hot! There is nothing worse than wedding guest’s melting during your outdoor ceremony, spending too much time trying to keep cool rather than enjoying your wedding. South east Queensland is renowned for our slightly cooler temps with Toowoomba’s average summer temperature ranging between 17 and 28 degrees Celsius, quite nice wouldn’t you say? A summer time wedding in Toowoomba would allow you to have that outdoor ceremony you’ve always wanted whilst keeping your guests comfortable and most importantly cool.
2. Enjoy more daylight, which means more time to mingle!
The summer season is known for those gorgeous longer daylight hours. Expect to get up to 13 hours of sunlight in Toowoomba during summer. This means even more golden afternoon light during your Garden Party. We provide everything you need to enjoy a balmy afternoon on our lawn. Umbrella’s, outdoor furniture and you can even choose an ice cream trike as your crowd-pleaser, so you can create the perfect summertime garden party. Then as the sun starts to set at around 7 pm you and your guests will move inside to our ‘Conservatory’ to start the formalities of the evening.
3. Lots of outdoor venue options.
