Weddings & Functions




My husband and I held our wedding at Platypus Park Riverside Retreat. The place was absolutely perfect! Owner's Col and Julie were both wonderful, professional, easy going, approachable, and were very helpful. There was nothing we could fault! The place was well manicured and was all in all just a stunning place. Thank you so much for the perfect wedding venue! We will be making this place a regular holiday/camping getaway with the ski boats. Look forward to returning.

We held our wedding at Platypus Park in May 2018 and could not recommend it more. The barn style reception area overlooking the Burnett River is beautiful and Col and Julie's attention to detail is obvious everywhere, as the grounds and venue are immaculate. The landscaped gardens and river bank provides beautiful options for the ceremony and photos and the on-site accommodation is well-equipped and perfect for visiting family or the bridal party. We look forward to returning!

We had a fantastic stay camping here recently. Col, Julie and the whole family are so welcoming and helpful and made for such a relaxing break. We borrowed the kayaks and paddled up the stream running down the side of the property and saw an abundance of wildlife. Our 6 y.o son loved playing cricket on the grass and when the host family and other campers joined in for a 'proper' game of cricket he was thrilled. We swam in the river every day and generally just relaxed and had an amazing time. We can't recommend it enough and we will certainly be back for another camping trip.

What a place and what great company!! Such a beautiful location with equally impressive amenities. Extremely professional run with a real family feel. Thanks Col & Julie for sharing your piece of paradise with us! See you next Easter, if not sooner.

There are so many words I would love to say but the best words are thank you! Thank you for being the most amazing hosts a bride and groom could ever ask for! Thank you for making the most best day our life, one we will never ever forget! Cole and Jules have the most amazing venue I have ever seen and I am so glad I could have it for my one and only wedding day!
