Holiday home with a large garden ?


Im helping my friends plan a wedding in oz next August and we are looking for a holiday home with a large garden (preferably backing on to the beach) that we can have the wedding in. There will be aprox 50 people attending. It doesnt matter how many rooms there are as everyone can get accomodation eleswhere.

Mission Beach, Port Douglas and the Whitsundays are the top choice but if we can find a good place any where in Queensland would be great. We have done lots of searching but i thought this might be a good way of finding somwhere ?

Thanks for any help you can give !

You could try Bingil Tropical Retreat in Bingil Bay, Mission Beach. They have a lovely large garden.

Hamilton Island have a huge choice of holiday homes and alternative accomodation for your guests. Many luxury properties but in August I would be inclined to head further north as the water and weather can be quite cool in the Whitsundays in August.

Port Douglas also has a huge array of luxury properties and alternative accommodation as well as numerous activities, dining, shopping etc to keep your guests amused.

That being said - areas south of Cairns such as Mission Beach could do with a boost following the cyclones last year and by August next year, most places should be back in operation and fully spruced up.

Magnetic Island (off Townsville) could also be another spot to consider.

Have a look at rentahome.com.au for private holiday homes through a licensed real estate agent (security in booking as opposed to sites like stayz that just put you in touch with the owner)

Also - this directory may be of assistance in locating other suppliers. www.easyweddings.com.au/Wedding/Cairns/
