THE VENUE


Dating back to 1905, Hillview Homestead is a quintessential country homestead situated on an original Dairy Farm in the Gold Coast hinterland. 

Surrounded by lush mountain ranges and heritage-listed national parks, the homestead encompasses a 700sqm estate and is packed with character and charm. Conveniently nestled in the Currumbin Valley, this rustic farm venue will delight nature lovers while being perfectly positioned just 10 minutes from the coastline.

So what can you expect from weddings hosted at this idyllic slice of paradise? Hillview Homestead features an original Queenslander home with a colonial-style verandah and beautifully decorated interiors (think: French doors, polished timber floors and cosy, elegant furnishings). Outside, the verandah overlooks spacious manicured lawns and a private outdoor pool and spa – all with the mountains as your backdrop.

Exchange your vows in the garden underneath a canopy of leafy trees, before spending the night dining under the stars with your nearest and dearest. With the entire venue at your disposal, you can enjoy cocktails and canapes poolside, and take advantage of the rugged hinterland surrounds for sun-soaked wedding portraits. The perfect escape from reality for you and your guests!
