Our Story

Welcome to Platypus Park Riverside Retreat

Discover our magnificent country estate established in 2001. Set amongst 50 acres of rural land, towering gum trees that line the river and expansive gardens and lawns. Platypus Park Riverside Retreat is the perfect destination for your wedding.

Our estate is located on the beautiful Burnett River on a quite rural road on the outskirts of Bundaberg, South-East Queensland. Surrounded by gorgeous acres of magnificent established gardens, the property is completely private and secluded.

The property was established from a forward-thinking vision by husband-and-wife team Col and Julie. From a completely blank canvas with no infrastructures in place this team and their young family transformed this property to evolve into something very special today. Each family member contributes, whether it’s setting up wedding equipment, gardening or administration. This magical environment could not have been achieved without hard work and the family working close together.
