Here are some kind words from recent Flaxton Gardens wedding clients

An absolute gorgeous location and great staff!
One of the best wedding venues in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland
We went to Flaxton Gardens for a date night - kid free. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner who found out we were out kid free and insisted we sit outside in a more secluded area, as there was a larger party inside with kids.It was perfect. We were well looked after - someone checking in occasionally to see if we were comfortable. And the food was all spot on! Delicious!Highly recommend Flaxton Gardens. Will definitely be back!
Amazing wedding, amazing food and amazing staff with great service!!!!
Vews are amazing, food is spectacular. Caters for anything from a quiet beer and steak to an intimate wedding.
No matter the dreadful weather, my daughter's wedding was amazing. The staff of Flaxton Gardens went out of their way to make the reception memorable.
Icecream Curls loved being apart of the weddings held there this year. the staff are lovely and the venue is amazing. we can't wait to continue working with Flaxton.
I was really looking forward to our high tea to celebrate my parents 55th wedding anniversary today who are over visiting us from the UK. The service we received wasn’t great and we had to wait absolutely ages for our second drinks of tea we ordered with our sweets. Then when I got the bill after paying $33 per head I was very disappointed to be charged a further $14 for tea! The high tea only includes one small cup of tea or coffee! When I ordered the second tea this was not explained to me that we would be charged. Very bad service and value for money as I would think two hot drinks with a high tea for $33 isn’t unreasonable to expect!
On 20th August my now husband and I got married at Flaxton Gardens and with the help of Mariana and her team it was honestly perfect and the best day of our lives. When we initially started to look at wedding venues in May 2017, we had first seen a private property as a venue which we had fallen in love with before arriving at Flaxton Gardens. When arriving at Flaxton Gardens we fell in love just as much but originally had actually decided based on cost, we were going to book the other venue.As the Flaxton Gardens representative had already been in touch with a quote and information of the service we had requested, we sent them a respectful email declining a booking there. Beyond this time we had returned to Melbourne and excitedly showed our family the original venue at which point logistical issues became apparent. Soon after we received a response from the representative at Flaxton Gardens thanking us for the email and asking for feedback. Now having doubts on the alternate venue we explained our concerns, one being cost and 2 other minor issues to do with beverage package and shape of tables. The representative very quickly came back to us suggesting solutions for the beverage package, letting us know they have long tables which were to our liking and asked us to add up all the preliminary costs of the private venue and compare that of Flaxton Gardens. In the end they worked out far better value for money, with the added bonus of the coastal view we have always dreamed of having for a back drop at our wedding, convenience of location to lots of accommodation for our interstate guests and a comfortable venue for guests to get around and spend ample time at. I wanted to highlight this to demonstrate the professionalism, expertise and genuine care the staff at Flaxton Gardens demonstrated from our initial interactions with them. They could have easily said thank you and good luck (as other venues did, some no response at all) but by going the extra mile we were ultimately thrilled to book our wedding at Flaxton Gardens. We had the pleasure of getting to know Mariana over the 15 months in the lead up to the wedding. Having worked in the wedding industry back home something I loved straight away about Mariana and her husband Alan who was the owner and head Chef of the venue, was they had in fact gotten married at the venue themselves not so long before we met them. We found this out as we had similar guest numbers to their wedding and Mariana brought out and made suggestions from her own seating plan. This means they don't offer a service to clients that they wouldn't use themselves, they put 100% into the food and service they are offering- it is their passion. Kind of like the saying- treat others how you would like to be treated- they demonstrate this in everything they do. We anticipated needing to hire a wedding planner to source and liaise with wedding vendors as we live in Melbourne. But Flaxton Gardens had that covered as well, they on their website provided a recommended list of suppliers they have worked consistently with which fit in with all price ranges. This was a page we could trust as Mariana only allows a vendor to be recommended after they have successfully completed 3 weddings at the venue and based on Brides' and Grooms' feedback. So we easily narrowed down the vendors we wanted to work with without the need of a planner. On top of this, the detail that goes into the run sheet Mariana creates gives you a template to work off ensuring you remember to cover every detail of your day- from dietary requirements, cake, a songlist you want played before the wedding etc.Mariana was not just a great guide for wedding planning but an incredible support. The number of times we have had to move appointments dates or times due to delayed flights or having to email her with questions or clarifications. There was nothing too hard for Mariana to handle. Honestly until the day our wedding came and Mariana asked to ensure our breakfast ended at 11am so they could set up for the next wedding, the service was so personalised we had forgotten that they do in fact have other weddings there and would have been dealing with other clients the whole time. Each meeting with Mariana was lovely and like catching up with an old friend. Something we also loved is they included a tasting in the booking to ensure we loved the food that was going to be served at our wedding. We are foodies and this was important to us so to have that opportunity was fantastic. We have not had a single person complain about the food they received on the night and for those who had queries they accommodated on the spot. The staff at Flaxton Gardens were friendly, professional and enthused to be working on our wedding. After a number of visits we got to know some familiar faces amongst the wait staff. You can tell they are treated well and enjoy their jobs and were just as invested in the wedding. Some remembering our faces the next day at breakfast even though we weren't in our wedding attire and telling us how lovely they thought our wedding was. Staff treated well are going to treat you well and that showed. Cannot say it enough- our day was perfect and that started and finished with the team at Flaxton Gardens. They have everything covered. They are willing to work with you on what you want that's unique to you and very open, fair and professional in how they conduct themselves. Thank you so much again to Mariana, Alan and all the staff at Flaxton Gardens for helping make our special day so memorable.
fabulous place for a special event. just attended my son's doing the - gorgeous. service was wonderful

Amazing food and great atmosphere �
Debra Faulkner Drury
Nice surroundings. Slightly disappoinint food
Got married here last year and I was so worried about every coming together properly on the day. The staff at Flaxton Gardens told me to sit back and enjoy the day which I did and they took care of absolutely everything! Everything was executed to 100% perfection and we felt like royalty on the day. Friendly staff and great service all at an affordable price. Can't recommend this place enough :)
I had the pleasure of being the MC at wedding in the restaurant at Flaxton Gardens and I must say what a wonderful space it is and the gazebo where the ceremony was held looked stunning. The wedding was for about 60 people it is quite intimate with the large verandas plenty of room to spread out. The dance area in front of the bar was a perfect size. The staff's attention to every detail made the wedding run seamlessly, and the food was amazing. A great evening in a great space.
Food - BrilliantService - OutstandingLocation -BreathtakingA real "must do" on the Hinterland!
My husband and I recently had the PERFECT wedding day. A huge thank you to Alan, Mariana and the staff at Flaxton gardens for helping us to achieve this magical day. The staff made the process so easy as they take all the stress away by setting up your reception and ceremony, Mariana was in constant contact always being helpful and patient to a stressed out bride! The food was amazing and all of our friends and family were extremely happy with this hidden little gem where we got married. Highly recommend this amazing venue to other brides to be. Thank you again
I was @ Flaxton Gardens for a wedding just very recently & everthing was good The scenery is spectacular, the food delicious & service good BUT I have to say it seems there’s a glitch in the system after reading a few of the bad reviews & Flaxton Gardens is taking the approach that the customer is not always right! Perhaps a case of so many good reviews that there’s no need to worry about the bad reviews??? Not good enough Flaxton Gardens👎🏻
Good for weddings, poor for High Tea, sorry to say.
It was the most beautiful relaxing place for mother's day. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and efficient and the flowers and gardens just beautiful.
My now husband and I were married at Flaxton Gardens on April 20th 2018. I have nothing but praise for Flaxton Gardens and their staff, from the very first time we saw Flaxton Gardens, they helped create our gorgeous day! They certainly bend over backwards to help any bride and groom create a day that THEY DREAM OF! The food was outstanding! The staff are professional and friendly ❤️ We will definitely be back over and over again!!
we loved our wedding at Flaxton Gardens! the venue is beautiful, the staff are amazing and the food was delicious! � thanks for going above and beyond to make our day so special!
From the moment we saw Flaxton Gardens we knew it was the place we wanted to get married. From the amazing location & incredible views. The delicious food & fantastic reception area (the winery). They provide a wet weather option- which actually worked out better for us. The wedding team were amazing & on top of everything. No task was too difficult & everyone was so friendly & helpful. Alan & Marianna are the loveliest people you’ll ever meet. Our wedding day was a dream ��
My husband and I have travelled and eaten out extensively, and our lunch today was by far one of the best we've ever had. Thank you!
Kim Schembri- Pratt
My friends and I had a beautiful lunch at Flaxton Gardens. All the staff were really lovely. It was clearly busy & we didn’t have a booking but they found room for us. Special mention to Ayla. She was friendly & made us feel very welcomed.
We had our wedding at Flaxton Gardens in October 2017 ! The venue and the staff were simply amazing ! They were so professional and accommodating and made our day perfect. We can't thank Mariana and the team enough and we would highly recommend Flaxton Gardens to any bride or groom looking for a wedding venue !
Had 'High Tea' on Sunday which was a warm day, we were seated outside and it was very hot, fans would be a great investment. Unfortunately they brought all the food out at the same time, hot savoury food was delicious but by the time we got to the sweets they were melting and not enjoyable in the heat. Certainly would be more enjoyable in milder weather, the views are beautiful.
We have get togethers often for a catch up and chat its such a lovely atmosphere service is fantastic love it
When looking for a reception venue, we were unsure if we would be able to find one that would be able to fit to our budget but would also offer a great service and experience. I was chatting to a friend of mine and they suggested that we head over to Flaxton Gardens. When we arrived we instantly fell in love and knew straight away that this is where we should go. We met the wedding team that day and they were incredibly accommodating and suggested we do a weekday wedding option and I’m so glad we did! It meant we were able to have our dream wedding, which we may not have been able to afford otherwise and we definitely were blown away. Staff were so lovely and approachable, food was delicious and kept on coming, views were gorgeous and we had the most magical time. Thank you Flaxton Gardens, we had a perfect day that was both relaxed and fun.
My nana booked her 90th birthday here in a private function room.. family travelling from interstate and overseas.. she called to confirm numbers only to be told “oh we’ve been trying to call you, we’ve decided not to open the day of your party”.. not even an apology, just “we’ll give you a high tea voucher”.. shocking!!!
Highly recommended for location, food and general helpfulness.
My wife & I had our Xmas lunch on Xmas eve last year. It was 3 courses for $49 p/person. The food was outstanding! The service, impeccable, & the views all the way to the coast were breathtaking. A truly 5 star experience. So much so that we're going to do it again this year!
We had a weekday wedding at Flaxton Gardens. It could not have been easier or better value. Mariana and her staff made everything easy and run perfectly, nothing was too much trouble, Al does fantastic food and all our guests commented on the beautiful venue, extremely helpful staff, great food and excellent service. They made our important day very memorable for all the right reasons! Great value for money, couldn't recommend them more!
Wonderful staff and service. Beautiful location 😊
Had gotten married there 5 years ago and is still amazing. The service the atmosphere is jist darling!
Food excellent. Service wonderful. Lovely day out.
My son's Formal was at Flaxton Gardens during the week. A beautiful place in a beautiful location. Thank you for making it a special occasion. 😀🎉
What a lovely place! Incredible views plus really great staff & service. Had a friend’s baby shower there over the weekend & was well aware they were setting up for a wedding later that day. In spite of this we were so well looked-after: multiple phone calls in the lead-up to change numbers & dietary requirements were handled professionally & in a friendly manner. On the day we had 2 dedicated staff so we knew who was solely attending to our function, nothing was too much for them & everyone had a great day. The team went the extra mile & couldn’t recommend this venue highly enough 👌🏽 Lovely food & a big thank you to Isla who looked after us on the day.
We absolutely love Flaxton Gardens, as wedding photographers it is an absolute dream to photograph brides and grooms at, but apart from that the staff are so lovely, the food is amazing and it really has everything wonderful right at its fingertips from views, accomodation, fine dining and so much more!
Attended a baby shower today and had the high tea. Pretty disappointing considering it cost $43 a head. I got a ginger beer, savouries was 1 small slider burger, 1 wonton, 1 spring roll. The sweets were disappointing, dry scones and whipped cream from a tin. I would not pay more than $15 for what I got. There needed to be more savouries, sandwiches maybe? Absolute rip off.
I found the staff to be approachable and helpful, with a wet weather change of plans executed seamlessly and before the rain drops hit. Will was my saviour for a few reasons, I was grateful for his ingenius solutions and appropriate discretion through a huge day.
Went to a wedding reception,,,was really nice venue,,Thought the spirits were a bit expensive considering they were in a small glass,,Overall a very nice experience
Thank you Flaxton Gardens! As I made a reservation here on Saturday I mentioned I was planing to propose at the restaurant & if they could help me out with the romantic setting. All I can say is the staff were amazing!! The setting was perfect. It was the most romantic night, my now bride to be said it was "magical" and I have to agree. It was the work from the staff that did it. Genuinely nice people. Then, the food was fantastic. We couldn't fault anything if we wanted to. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
What an amazing venue, with great owners and staff. They make you feel completely welcome the moment you walk through the doors. The food is incredible as well. Highly recommended all the way from Cape Town, South Africa <3
I was at Flaxton for a high tea just on the weekend just gone. The service we received was amazing, the food was great and the location is breath taking. Thanks a million 😁
Thank you again to flaxton gardens for hosting such a beautiful high tea baby shower for my daughter on Saturday 19/8/2017. The staff, the service and the food was outstanding. We were so lucky to be able to come back here after flaxton gardens had also hosted her wedding in May last year. We can't wait to come and celebrate our next occasion with you all.
Such a beautiful venue, so disappointed in both the service and food. I attended a baby shower on Saturday the 19/ 08. We were not offered our glass of wine, I saw some people were, but my group weren't . The courses were mean to say the least, and the crockery wasn't condusive to what I would expect for ' high tea' I have been to many of these events which were vastly different, perhaps more like morning tea. We were not offered tea or coffee I had to ask the waitress to bring me tea. We did not get what we paid for my mind.
I can't believe how amazing Flaxton Gardens were for our wedding. Our day was so magical and stress free thanks to this venue and their dedicated team. The setting was beautiful, the rooms amazing, the team were all so friendly and kind, the food was delicious, they set it up and decorated it all and this was all included in the price. We looked at other wedding venues prior to booking Flaxton Gardens and we just felt like we were a burden to the other venues that we attended. It was off putting. Right from the get go Flaxton we're excited about our engagement, they were professional, reassuring and have so many great ideas. I can go on and on about how great they are but I think you should go and check them out yourself, you won't regret booking with them ❤️️😍
I went to my sisters baby shower yesterday. Beautiful gardens, really lovely area set up with flowers etc only down fall was the food to be honest. She had a high tea and the cakes with cream and chocolate were bought out with the mains to sit in the hot sun. By the time we ate them they were melted, most of them were thrown away. For $22.50 per head it was a bit pricey without at least a coffee.
Elizabeth May Baker
Yes would thoroughly recommend it. A beautiful spot and wonderful lunch we had.
Cindy Kay Smith
I had the pleasure of attending a function at Flaxton Gardens on Tuesday night and everything was just superb. Beautiful venue and surrounds, amazing staff and food, and for a very cold night it was cosy and warm inside. Highly recommended and can't wait to come back again.
A big thankyou to Alan, Mariana and the team at Flaxton Gardens. The Wedding Industry Event for over 100 of the Sunshine Coast Wedding suppliers they hosted last night was amazing .. The beautiful food, entertainment and service with stunning views.. . A great night!!!!.. If you are looking for a stunning, location with, amazing vendors touch base with Mariana and the Team ... Look forward to working with you again really soon . Toni Collett Celebrant.. ❤❤❤❤❤
Flaxton Gardens was wonderful experience. Great staff, food and atmosphere. Thank you to Alan and Mariana for holding a great suppliers network and Lee for hosting. We look forward to catching up and meeting new faces again in the future. Thanks again, Hayley and Mike (iShoot Photobooth)

This wedding venue is second to none and ticks all boxes- friendly and efficient staff, tasty and outstanding food, spectacular views, big hearts behind this venue. Hope to see you all soon - Gillian, First Class Pet Wedding Assistants
Alan and Mariana go above and beyond to make everyone feel welcomed. They are superb hosts and greet everyone with genuine warmth and interest. Thank you both for a wonderful evening last night. I am always excited to know that my couples have chosen your wonderful venue for their Wedding Ceremony and Reception. Wishing you much success always.
Superb venue - outstanding service from friendly professional staff , mouthwatering food and amazing atmosphere .Alan and Mariana thank you so much for hosting a wonderful evening for Sunshine Coast wedding suppliers to simply enjoy themselves. Your warmhearted generosity is much appreciated �.
Tonight I enjoyed the warmth and inviting surroundings and I really look forward to working for my happy wedding couples that choose to marry at your superb venue.
The best meal and table service I have ever had. My mum and I had the Christmas is July menu. It was absolutely delicious and the portion sizes were perfect. The table service was great as well. Thanks for a wonderful lunch. We will definitely be back again.
The food and the service is always amazing, and the venue is gorgeous.
Great food an service. The desert wad amazing! Hope to return one day during the day.
We had a beautiful dinner in the restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious, along with a beautiful dessert to end the night. I wish we visited during the day to check out the outdoor setting. We will be back next time! Thank you.
I was MC for my (now) brother and sister-in-laws and cannot speak highly enough of the staff and venue at Flaxton Gardens. Mel and Brianna did an excellent job and were superb in a last-minute venue change due to wet weather. (PS, The Barrel room is an awesome wet weather alternative). The food, service and bar staff were excellent and they ran the reception with military precision. As MC, there are a lot of moving parts to organise, but dealing with the team at Flaxton Gardens made the night seamless and a perfect tribute to the happy couple. Thanks again!
Had a most enjoyable day. Food was fabulous, staff were cheerful and ready to jump onto the jokes that were being readily handed out. Weather perfect, what more could you want?
We enjoyed a delicious meal in beautiful surroundings. Staff and service were also great.
Loved our luxury high tea, beautiful setting, attentive staff and tasty treats.
The ideal place to while away a few hours with family and/or friends. The views to the coast are spectacular while the food choices will suit all tastes and the setting captures country elegance perfectly. Brought back so many delightful memories sharing special occasions over many years with my late mother when she lived in Mapleton.
Stunning location, delicious food & great service!
The weather, food and service was great. Location had stunning views.
Always a pleasant and relaxing experience when we have come here. Recently had Mother In-laws 60th birthday and everything was superb. Great service and fantastic attention to detail.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Sam & the team for our amazing wedding. The day was perfect and all the staff were so great the whole way through the day. Sam we really appreciated all the work and extra touches you put in, from lending us scissors to iced water with straws for the bridal party to all the tips for walking down the aisle perfectly and how to hold off tears. You all made everything smooth sailing, fixing every little issue that arose before we were even aware of them. The food was incredible and everyone enjoyed it. You made our big day extra special and we loved everything about being at Flaxton Gardens. Thank you so much. I cannot recommend this venue enough!
I don't know where to start with this amazing venue!! It is hands down one of the finest in the Hinterland! Offering a stunning backdrop, delicious food and exceptional service!! Highly recommend!
Beautiful location, friendly staff and amazing food. It was a beautiful mothers day lunch.
Went for mothers day and you guys went above and beyond to make the day special. Especislly catering for GF for mum and I. My third visit and my families first and I can assure you we will be back!!!
Had a great dinner last night with my daughter and Son in law. Been many times but I must say the service was a tad slow 😞

Samantha Maree Vajda
Dear Sam, Mel & Alan, Rob and I can't thank you enough for creating the most perfect day for us. Despite cyclone Debbie, loss of power and generators that would just not behave themselves it all came together beautifully. Alan - you went above and beyond to keep us informed, dropping in with champagne and even being there for a cheeky drink at the end of the night (which Ryan thoroughly enjoyed!). We really appreciate how much effort it took and the lengths you went to to ensure our day was flawless. Mel - every time I looked up you were there!! You are the most attentive coordinator on the planet, and catered to our ridiculous spotlight request with 5 minutes notice like it was no problem at all! Thank you thank you thank you. Sam, from the moment we met you we knew Flaxton was the place to have our wedding. You are so friendly and bubbly, took all our requests in your stride, and offered so many helpful solutions. I never once felt stressed about how smoothly the day would run, and I will miss you and the team very much!Flaxton Gardens is the perfect place for magic to happen, and we will never forget all the fun we had on our special day thanks to you. See you soon! Sam and Rob x
Pretty good, great job with our Glenn and Marguerite wedding. Top recommendations to all
Thank you Flaxton Gardens for a great night. Tuesday nights special Passover with Flametree Church. The food and the beautiful decor were perfect for our special event. Thank you for hosting us.
Great view, great food and great service. We really enjoyed our lunch. Thank you!
Chris and I can't thank Sam, Melissa and the team at Flaxton Gardens enough for giving us our fairytale wedding. It exceeded all our expectations and I was over the moon with how everything went. Sam - thank you for always being so kind when I would email you everyday. You have been so supportive and you sold us the vision on that very first day that we met over coffee. You have felt like my friend for the past 9 months and I will miss our chats! We booked with Flaxton Gardens because I knew that with you as my wedding coordinator we would be in safe hands. Melissa had everything run smooth on the night and we received endless compliments with the quality of good, professionalism of all the staff and the breath taking venue. Flaxton Gardens will always hold a special place in our hearts and we look forward to visiting again soon!
Michael and I can not thank Sam, Melissa and the rest of the team enough for making our day as beautiful as possible! From the start everyone there was so helpful and lovely and we couldn't fault flaxton gardens even if we tried it was beyond perfect! Thank you all so much for making it a day to remember!
The 25th of March Thanks to All the Staff and Especially Sam the coordinator for our Daughters wedding made this day a day that will last in our memories Forever.It was the most perfectly planned and executed function I have been to in a long timeThank You Flaxton GardensGreg Ellis Father of the Bride
A huge thank you to Sam and the staff at Flaxton Gardens. We had so many compliments on the venue, service and food. Everything went smoothly during the planning and on the day and we couldn't have asked for a better place to get married. Thanks again! We will definitely be back to visit �
I do not even know where to start here! What an AMAZING venue!! We love you guys. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the most perfect wedding day we could ever of asked for!! From the moment we arrived at flaxton gardens we thought it was the most beautiful venue. Sam is a very dear friend to us, and it was an honour to have her there helping us plan our day! she is truly one of the most caring and beautiful humans we have ever met! Nothing is a problem for her, she will make sure the day is magical! even though she was a guest at our wedding she still made sure it all ran smooth on the day. Tiffany and Mel were fantastic on the day/night. They were extremely professional and attentive. They made sure we had been looked after. There is absolutely nothing we can fault about this venue. The food is amazing, the staff are amazing, Alan the venue has to be the most amazing on the hinterland!! Thank you again for the most perfect day!!Much love <3 Michael & Grace Byrnes x
Great view, lovely food and attentive staff. Will be back again.
I've dine in for a lunch meal it was lovely. I just had my baby shower here, lovely venue however a few things I would've changed.
Went to FG for Valentines Day and absolutely loved it! Great service, great food, and fantastic atmosphere. The romantic live piano player and dancing was phenomenal �
Amazing location with near perfect food. New wait staff were a little unsure but the overall experience was something special
Absolute loved the Valentines dinner and dance , amazing food and the hosts are lovely people !
Was very nice friendly staff and great food but could of had fans
Very friendly, welcoming staff who know how to make an exceptional cappuccino. 😊
Went for high tea with friends. The location and view was amazing. Staff were friendly but unorganised. Had a long wait for first drink and an even longer wait for the food. So disappointing. The ordinary white bread for the sandwiches was dry as was the scone. That was also dry and hard. The range of small cakes were old and boring. Did not live up to your wonderful reputation.
A beautiful spot with wonderful food and atmosphere. We've just enjoyed our 2nd happy hour here.
Won't be making the drive all the way up again. :( Not worth it for nothing special but expensive.
A perfect setting for a wedding and you'll find Mariana and Alan, Sam and all the staff really lovely people to plan your wedding with. Looking forward to the wedding expo this weekend 14th/15th January 2017. Come on up and have a look. Definitely worth a visit.
A sensational wedding venue that cannot be faulted! It's elegant with out being elitist, it's inclusive and friendly and that's mainly due to the gorgeous Sam and her team who will look after you down to the smallest detail. The food and service are impeccable and the view is to die for! A favourite wedding venue of mine, and I've seen them all 💕💕💕
Excellent service and delicious 😋 food.
Beautiful gardens and views. The food was lovely and the staff were attentive.

Wow! What an awesome place! We had my daughter's 21st party here. From the first time we met with Alan and Melissa we felt very confident in their abilities. They were extremely accommodating and professional. The night was perfect from beautiful food to great friendly staff. All our guests were so impressed with the facilities and it made my daughter's masquerade ball a truly magical night.Thank you so very much!
We provided a Wedding cake for our customers. The staff at Flaxton Gardens were so very obliging. The room looked wonderful and I am sure our customers had an amazing time.
We went for High Tea. Lovely atmosphere and excellent customer service. Thank you!
Great food service and view Good value for money
Best place on the Sunshine Coast. Good food and service. Great views.
A big thank you to the amazing team at Flaxton Gardens for making our wedding day so beautiful and so much fun. We organised our wedding in 3.5 months (weekday) and our guests compliment us on how beautiful everything was - location, meals, lovely staff, styling, the list goes on. Full credit to Sam, Melissa and the team for making the planning so stress free and so much fun - communication was perfect and you were so accommodating with our requests. It was just perfect & we couldn't have asked for a better day thank you! Amanda & Peter
Thank you Sam, Mel and the team at Flaxton Gardens for making our wedding day the most incredible day in this whole entire world! My husband and I had the most amazing day, and everybody commented on how beautiful the venue was, and how friendly the staff are. You could not wipe the smiles off of our faces!! Thank you for all the effort you put into our special day, Chris and I cannot thank you enough �
Celebrated my 50th birthday with special friends enjoying the Luxury High Tea! Staff were great and I was very impressed how well guests with catered for with varied dietary requirements. A beautiful high tea was enjoyed by all! Thank you �
Fantastic venue, brilliant service and exceptionally tasty food! Great for large group functions.
Excellent! Amazing staff and top quality location ... Love this venue <3
Enjoyed my birthday High Tea here today. Beautiful selection of cakes and sandwiches, fantastic price at a picturesque location. I hope I get to photograph a function here soon.
To Sam and the whole team at Flaxton gardens, we can not thank you enough for what you did for our elopement. All staff went above and beyond their duties and made our small and intimate day truly magical. Thank you so much! Kristie-Lee and David Gibbs 29/09/2016.
Such a lovely setting and excellent service. We had the high tea - mini sandwiches, some pastry thingies and yummy little cakes. Even provided us with containers to take the very few we couldn't finish home as compensation for those who had to work.
To Sam and the team, I had the most amazing day of my life on Thursday 13th October! I married the man of my dreams at this stunning venue! Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts for making it all possible! I got so so many compliments from the guests about the food, the service, the staff and the venue itself. I wouldn't of went anywhere else. You guys helped me with absolutely everything and made my day come together. Thank-you again for all that Sam and the team did to make my special day everything that we dreamed of! Much love to you all. � Kind regards, Rachael and Shane Nicholas xo
I had a high tea at Flaxton gardens yesterday to celebrate my 60th birthday and absolutely loved it! The staff are all so lovely and very helpful, the high tea was delicious and the setting is just beautiful!
Beautiful venue with an amazing view to match the great food and friendly staff �
I have a Worked at Flaxton for many years and is we have very good team.
Flaxton Gardens is where you find real service, real food & real care with real people.The Flaxton Team's friendly & professional service stands out above the crowds.The food is fresh from the kitchen and each dish is a perfectly planned creation made with love.I love the elegance & tranquility of Flaxton Gardens with its perfectly manicured gardens. And the magnificent stretching view over the entire Sunshine Coast coastline rounds it all off beautifully.

Flaxton Gardens hosted a wonderful birthday lunch for my two brothers last month. We couldn't have asked for better service. Everyone I dealt with was so kind and helpful, the meal was delicious and the venue delightful. Even tho they had another big event that day they couldn't have been more gracious to our group. Thank you all.
Had a lovely stay, Lynn is very friendly & nothing is too much trouble.Definitely go again �

We couldn't have picked a better venue and many people said this was the wedding of the year which we couldn't have had without you. Thank you so much for Such a memorable day!
We were recently married at Flaxton Gardens on 02/05/2016! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location or venue to have our wedding! It was such a magical day! From the very moment we met with Georgina we knew that Flaxton Gardens was the place for us! Every meeting helped us to feel comfortable and relaxed about the day, and the fact that there was nothing to stress about the entire day was amazing! It was so wonderful to just focus on the day and being excited about getting married!So many of our guests and bridal party commented on how wonderful the venue and staff were and how everything had been thought of! It was the little extra touches that made the difference!An extra special thanks to Mel that did an amazing job on the day!!! She was so amazing to work with and was so patient when one of our flower girls wanted to assist her in clearing tables after dinner! :) Looking back on the whole day I cannot imagine having our day anywhere else, the venue, the staff, the food and accommodation were perfect in every way!!!Thank you so much, we can't wait to come back and reminisce! Nicole & Matt xo
We cannot thank the ladies at Flaxton enough for making our wedding day and the lead up to our wedding something beautiful to remember.

Our day couldn't have gone more smoothly and our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was! We will be forever grateful for the amazing service at flaxton gardens on our special day.

Our daughter and son-in-law got married at Flaxton Gardens this May. This venue is truly magical! Thank you so much to the Flaxton Gardens team for all of their love and support during the planning process. The day was absolutely perfect and could not have been done without your help! The food is delicious, the venue is absolutely stunning and the staff are amazing! Thank you Flaxton Gardens team! We are your customers for life <3 :)
We recently got married at Flaxton Gardens on the 14th of April. We hadn't looked at many options but we didn't have to as when we saw Flaxton we were sold! We had a look around with Georgina who was ever so helpful and then we dealt with Sam throughout the planning process. Sam was amazing and truly goes above and beyond with what she does. From recommending wedding suppliers, always making sure we were on track with our planning process to even bringing us wine while we were getting ready to calm our nerves. The venue itself was so beautifully decorated inside and we are still being told how amazing the food was. We are so sad that it is all over now but look forward to making it our new anniversary place as the food and view are spectacular. Thank you so much to the team at Flaxton for making our day everything we could have hoped for xx
Attended a friends wedding. Great venue, beautiful views, friendly and efficient staff. Highly recommended if you are considering this venue.
We got married in February 2016 at Flaxton Gardens. It was the first and last place that we looked at for a venue as upon finishing up with our tour with Georgina Thompson, we were absolutely sold. It was all perfect - the venue, the view, the inclusions available, the food and the amazing staff. Georgina put us in the extremely capable hands of Sam Langford to help plan our wedding and we were not once disappointed throughout the process - Sam was able to assist us with all of our queries, recommended vendors within the local area and helped us find solutions to our problems. The best quality of Sam other than her brilliant organisation skills is how personable she is. When you are in the hands of Sam, you feel like your family or her best friend which made the planning and execution of our big day even more exciting. Our wedding day was simply magical.. the staff at Flaxton went above and beyond to ensure our special day was better than we could have ever imagined. If you haven't had the opportunity to visit Flaxton Gardens or are looking for THE perfect wedding and reception venue - do yourself a favour and pop in and say hi to Georgina, Sam and the staff. You won't regret it!Cam & Anita Shaw
My now husband and I couldn't have picked a better venue for our wedding. ❤ Everything--from the surroundings, to the decorations, to the food, to the service--was spectacular!Thanks heaps to all the staff who helped make the big day such a memorable time for us, and for the family and friends who attended.
I recently had my wedding here and it is the most amazing wedding venue you will find on the sunshine coast or even anywhere. The venue is so beautiful but the staff are the highlight, they are so professional and personable from day 1 even up until even after the wedding. :) I am so happy I choose this amazing venue for my wedding and it just shows in our photos.
If your visiting the Sunshine Coast or live her you must try Flaxton Gardens! It's Djoel and my favorite place, located in the beautiful hinterland, views you never want to leave, food the will make you go back and staff that make your day extra special! We have done breakfast, lunch, dinner, monthers day high tea and all where amazing! Hence why Djoel proposed here and we returned for our wedding reception! Also one to consider if you have a wedding coming up, they will make your day truly special. Thanks everyone at Flaxton Gardens xx
What a great venue, thanks for the use of your beautiful gardens and lounge for our photoshoot. We loved our High Tea experience and highly recommend it to everyone.
Absolutely beautiful place. Had my daughters 21st birthday dinner here. It was so special and the food was outstanding. Even for me who is gluten and dairy free. Lovely staff. Was simply perfect for all our 20 guests. Thank you so much for a perfect memory.
On Sunday 22nd November 44 members, partners and friends of the Sunshine Coast Gourmet club made the trek up to Flaxton to a much anticipated end of year luncheon at one of our favourite restaurants; Flaxton Gardens. Our hosts Georgina ad Alan most certainly didn’t disappoint. As usual, we were greeted warmly and welcomed to a beautifully decorated area with seasonal Christmas colours. Our entre consisted of Zucchini Terrine with caviar, herb salad and salsa verde. Comments from our members included: •How to make zucchini a star!!! Presentation: 10/10; taste was perfected by the Verde, dill and caviar which burst with flavour in the mouth. The main course consisted of Roast lamb rack with Rost potato and seasonal greens with thyme jus. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the rosti potatoes and broccolini complemented it perfectly. The dessert, (my tastebuds are still screaming out for more) consisted of a tasting plate of Assiette of soufelee, magnum and vanilla bean pannacotta with chocolate pudding. Everyone wanted more. The service and décor were of course impeccable and a fantastic day was had by all. Thank you again Alan and Georgina, a fantastic day!!!
We fell in love with Flaxton Gardens the first time we laid eyes on it. It was the first and only place we looked at for our Wedding venue. Georgina, Sam and all of the staff at Flaxton are just superb. In the lead up to our big day they were nothing but helpful and accommodating. Our Wedding was absolutely perfect and we would not change a thing. We are so sad that it is over but look forward to revisiting Flaxton Gardens to reminisce on such a wonderful day. Thankyou Flaxton Gardens , you made all of our dreams come true!
Upon arrival the place looked fantastic! Unfortunately that is where the positives stop. Food and service was very poor and we had to listen to Christmas music all night. It was August. Don't recommend it.

Had a surprise birthday lunch for my mother inlaw yesterday. Was so great! The restaurant letting me decorated the table the way I wanted it with a touch of little things of what mum likes. The food was amazing! Flaxton Gardens has so beautiful and refreshing view. And, on the top of that, we all loved the staff! They all were so friendly and easy going. We felt like having party at our own veranda. What a hospitality! I surely come back for my next party.
Extremely disappointed. We had our wedding here on the 13th June. When we were first signed up everyone was very helpful. Once they had our booking and our money their service stopped. The service on the night was atrocious. I definitely would never recommend this place to anyone. Such a shame as I had high hopes. The venue is beautiful however service and quality do not meet the same standard.
Very disappointed, we had my sister in laws birthday lunch with you yesterday... We were there for an hour and 20 minutes before we were acknowledged. There was no system with coffee orders, some were still waiting an hour later for their coffee. The food was pretty average and disappointing, "high tea" in my mind is meant to be delicate, a scone the size of a tennis ball is not delicate. My sister inlaw was promised lovely tea cups and they were just standard cups. For $40plus a head it was very over rated.
I think it's all been said before but yes Flaxton Gardens is a truly gorgeous venue. As a wedding supplier I never tire of coming here. Georgina and Alan, congratulations!!!!
We, Ken & Krystyna Scurr held our wedding reception in the restaurant at Flaxton Gardens on Saturday 11 May 2015. From our initial appointment through to our special day Georgina and Sam went above and beyond to make it truly magical! Nothing was too much trouble and as they reassured us everything was perfect. Thank you to you Georgina, Sam and staff. Special thanks to Trent you were super efficient and made our day run smoothly. We recommend Flaxton Gardens to anyone, the food was outstanding, the service excellent and all the finishing touches made it spectacular, more than we could ever imagine. Our guests are still commenting on how wonderful the wedding was which was in two parts with an evening entertainer who praised the Flaxton the whole Flaxton team. You truly made our day memorable and we cannot wait to come back again! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Very professional and excellent service. No request was too hard. Definitely recommend.
The staff and service at Flaxton Gardens is second to none, I love shooting here and I never hear anything but good things from the couples that get married at this beautiful venue! Special mention to the lovely Georgina who is so warm, welcoming and accommodating and also to Trent who always goes above and beyond with a big smile on his face!

I love this place, it's a photographers paradise !
Great venue. Great service. Exceptional food. If you have any friends come to the sunshine coast entertain your guests here. The view is spectacular.
If I could give you a 12/5 I would! Georgina, Alan, Sam and Trent, what a fantastic team! I have already recommended Flaxton Gardens to another couple who are considering getting married here. The staff are always so friendly and accommodating, and the location is absolutely perfect. I could not fault Flaxton Gardens at all.
Best wedding management and venue, thanks Georgina and all the staff for making my daughter's wedding perfect
Your service, professionalism and venue is at such a high quality. .The bridal party sang you and your staffs praises all day - couldn't get over the service, we were all taken care of so beautifully. I couldn't recommend flaxton gardens highly enough.
A huge Thank You to Georgina & Sam for such an amazing couple of days. What has only been a 2 night stay it has felt like a week on this property, so peaceful. You have made our 10 year Wedding Anniversary so special & romantic & one we will never forget. The food is to die for & your staff go out of their way to ensure your stay is perfect.

Thank you so much Georgina, Alan & Samantha for our dream Flaxton Gardens wedding. We could not fault anything, from our initial meeting to our special day. Your communication through emails and phone calls were reassuring and professional. Every aspect of our wedding day was taken care of. On the actual day you and your staff were all amazing. All of our guest have only commented on how wonderful our wedding was, and how beautiful the venue and food was.

Thank you to Georgina and the team at Flaxton Gardens for making our wedding day so amazing. The service, assistance, direction and advice provided leading up to and on our big day was exceptional. The food was a big highlight with all our guests - a big thanks to Alan and staff in the kitchen. FG should definitely be at the top of all brides to be lists when searching for wedding venues.
Thank you to everyone involved in the wedding of Linsey Borg to Andrew Leach on Saturday 3rd May 3014. Everything was perfect and ran so smoothly. Great place for food, drinks and weddings.

Food great desert great lovely spot
When considering a first class venue for your wedding Ceremony and reception then Flaxton Gardens would have to be at the top of the list. I am so blessed to be able to work with such professionals who not only give consistently excellent service but pour their heart and soul into every Celebration they host and tick every box (even the ones a bride might forget). Georgina and Alan, thank you for setting such a high standard for the Wedding Industry on the Sunshine Coast.
Georgina, Alan, family and staff are the most wonderful people you could ever hope to meet. The surroundings are just divine and the food is mouth watering. As a restaurant and wedding venue it is superb. We were so blessed to have our wedding reception at Flaxton Gardens - we wouldn't go anywhere else! xoxoxo
Flaxton Gardens is the most stunning astounding place. Georgina and her wonderful staff should be so proud of what they achieve. We recently got married here and could not fault their services, they were right on the money. Would highly recommend them. Just perfect.
