Rustic Queensland Wedding Venues

by | Australia - Queensland, Bride, Wedding Venues


I’m finally, after much research and cups of tea, launching the updated rustic Queensland wedding venue list! Queensland has a beautiful array of buildings available for hire- decidedly less like a barn (or as I like to proclaim for Australians- woolshed!) but more in keeping with the tropical Queensland climate.

Built in 1859, the Jondaryan Woolshed is the oldest operating woolshed in Queensland. The woolshed can accommodate up to 300 guests and basic accommodation is available in the Shearer’s Quarters Visit their website for more information.


Lightspace isn’t a barn by any stretch of the imagination, but this Brisbane venue provides all the beautiful facets that we’ve come to love from barn weddings. Utilising various spaces, the venue can seat up to 300 guests with a beautiful terrace and 500 for cocktails. The rustic, industrial style space Visit the website for more information,
