Iconic New Venue ‘The Homestead’ Coming to the Gold Coast

A contemporary, new wedding and events venue, 'The Homestead’, is now taking bookings. Nestled amongst the scenic backdrop of the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, the venue forms the signature feature of the award-winning attractions’ newest precinct.

Designed in collaboration with global leisure and entertainment company Pico Play, the 841sqm property draws inspiration from the famed ‘Queenslander’, complete with a wrap-around verandah, soaring ceilings and cosy sandstone fireplace. Now in its final stages of construction, bookings for The Homestead are now open ahead of the venue’s grand opening in May 2024.

“We designed the facility as the centrepiece of our new entertainment precinct, the most significant in the Sanctuary’s 75-year history, following extensive guest feedback and the opportunity to fill a gap in the market for a premium event space offering,” says Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary General Manager, Travis Couch.

“The Gold Coast is among Australia’s top destinations, from holiday makers to those looking to relocate from other states and territories. Along with an increase in major corporate events occurring across the market, we expect a venue like The Homestead will be highly sought after, ” says Mr Couch.

The Homestead offers a uniquely Australian experience and can comfortably seat 200 people for private functions. A bespoke menu will be launched over the coming weeks which will feature a selection of unique dishes, inspired by the Australian Outback.

“The concept of paddock to plate is at the forefront of our dining experience at The Homestead, keeping in mind our heritage and the community to ensure our dishes are reflective of the region,” says Mr Couch.

The venue will also be complemented by a secondary dining venue, The Patio, which will be open for Sanctuary visitors to casually dine at daily.

“The Sanctuary is already a popular location for weddings and events, and The Homestead offers couples and event organisers a unique and premium facility to celebrate their special day,” says Mr Couch.
