Brisbane Wedding Venue

A timeless canvas for your story to find its beginning

Where tradition meets exceptional service

From its magnificent homestead to its serene 160 year old gardens and towering ancient trees, Gabbinbar seamlessly merges expansive surroundings and elegant interiors to offer an exquisite Brisbane wedding venue.

In the 19th century, the venue was the summer residence for the Governors of Queensland. They would gather, with loved ones and friends, to enjoy long lazy days that merged into star-filled nights alive with laughter and relaxation—celebrating the moments that makes life special.

Honouring these values of hospitality, warmth and joie de vivre we continue the tradition today.
