Getting Married at Glenrock Farm
Glenrock Farm is a rural oasis in the heart of the bustling Gold Coast
Our Unique Gold Coast Location
At Glenrock Farm, we offer a truly enchanting and unique setting for events and weddings. We combine the charm of the countryside with the convenience of being in the heart of the Gold Coast. Our venue, spanning 22 acres, provides an extraordinary opportunity to have your ceremony, photographs, pre-function cocktails, and canapés followed by your reception, all in one stunning location. Situated less than 10km from the beach, we take pride in being one of the last working dairy farms on the Gold Coast. Our rich history is showcased through the original farm house adorned with century-old camphor laurel and gum trees, as well as the rustic old barn and dip yards.
We have been fortunate to call Glenrock home for over thirty years, back when Carrara was still a farming community with dirt roads. This historic property has a rich past as a working dairy farm, one of many that flourished on the fertile Carrara plain of the Gold Coast. It stands today as a testament to the pioneering days of the Gold Coast, long before it became a popular holiday destination.
As the current owners, we have reintroduced cattle to the farm and transformed it into a thriving fruit farm, complete with friendly animals. It has become a cherished home for various members of our family.
We are delighted to share this rural haven with you!
Experience The Magic Of Our Venue
At Glenrock Farm, we invite you to experience the magic of our extraordinary venue, where cherished moments become timeless memories.
Imagine exchanging your vows beneath the majestic gum trees, capturing breathtaking photos amidst the surrounding natural beauty, whether it be in the paddock or against the backdrop of original farming equipment. Meanwhile, your guests can relax and enjoy refreshing cocktails and delectable canapés in the shade of the trees, alfresco-style or under the twinkling night sky.
We can offer special extras like no other – such as your arrival in a hot air balloon, a bonfire or ending the night with a spectacular fireworks display creating an impression sure to last.
Across the property, we offer a variety of areas each with their own charm and no doubt one that will be perfect for your plans. Our team at Glenrock Farm Weddings will help you transform the rural setting into a sophisticated venue, offering a stunning natural backdrop outside the city lights.
Wedding Ceremony Options
There’s multiple backdrops to choose from to exchange your vows at Glenrock Farm:
– On the hilltop
– By the dam
– In the middle of the paddock
– In the rustic setting of the barn
– Under the trees
The open paddock or outside the barn is ideal for pre-dinner drinks and canapés for your guests while you roam the property for photos, and on cold nights the fire pit proves to be a welcome comfort.
Wedding Reception Options
Our barn’s raw beauty lies in its exposed corrugated iron sheeting, aged wooden details and exposed festoon lighting. To add a touch of elegance, white drapery can be used to soften the look, and the barn can be further customised with additional styling. If you prefer a marquee reception, Glenrock Farm’s manicured paddocks are level and will fit marquees of any size and shape.
