Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the minimum number of guests?
During peak period ie Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays the minimum number of guests is 50 adult equivalents. For Mondays through to Thursdays the minimum is a much more intimate 20 adult equivalents (think private chef & butler type service levels).
0-4 years old are free
5-12 years old @ 50% of the adult price
13 years and older @ full adult price
Adult equivalent example
50 adults plus 2 x 13 y.o. children
equates to 50 adults + (2 x 0.5) = 51 adult equivalents
Can we bring our own alcohol?
Pioneer Country is fully licensed and to retain our liquor license we must control all sales and supply of liquor on site. Therefore alcohol is not to be brought onto the premises by either the client, guests or 3rd party service providers.
Fortunately this means it is Pioneer Country’s responsibility to ensure all bar staff are responsible service of alcohol trained. It also means you do NOT have to apply to the NSW Dep. of Liquor & Gaming for a temporary liquor license because we already have an on-premises liquor license.
Our liquor license goes until 12 mid night.
Can we bring our own caterer or food trucks?
-Unfortunately this option is no longer available however our in-house chef will NOT disappoint. If you want a food truck vibe please consider our night market hand cart menu options.
The Pioneer Country venue hire includes styling and event management, what other service providers (expenses) will I require?
Pioneer Country recommends you organise at least the following services and that they be booked in the following order:
(bridal party flowers, table arrangements optional, chapel arrangements optional)
5. music (either DJ or live musicians)
Sarah has a long list of recommended suppliers that can streamline organising your wedding.
Is it cheaper to book mid-week?
Typically you can save $1,500 on your venue hire if you choose to hold your wedding on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
Due to increased labour costs Sundays and public holidays incur a 15 % surcharge for food and beverages (not applicable to venue hire).
Does Pioneer Country offer accommodation?
We don’t need to because we are so close to town (10 mins). We recommend:
For the bride and her tribe we recommend the gracious Belle River House at Tumbulgum. She sleeps 16-18 adults and is a scenic 13 km drive from Pioneer Country. Rydges Airport Hotel & The Pink Hotel Coolangatta also offer special discounts for Pioneer Country wedding guests.
We are only a 10 minute taxi ride from Coolangatta-Tweed Heads.
Guests are also welcome to leave their cars in our off street carpark and collect them at their leisure the following day.
My partner and I had our wedding ceremony at Pioneer country and it was picture perfect!! Such a beautiful chapel, amongst palm trees and on the most gorgeous property. Sarah was amazing! She worked around my convenience for viewing, rehearsal, etc, as well as provided so many tips and tricks to make our day the best it could be. She even let us borrow her antique lawn bowls set which made for some amazing pictures. Furthermore, she drove us up to some incredible photo opportunities on her off road buggy. Sarah made the wedding very smooth and her venue is absolutely perfect!

We highly recommend pioneer country as a wedding venue! Upon our first meeting with Sarah she gave us a tour of the venue and a fantastic information pack with recommended vendors, and everything we needed to know. She was there for us every step of the way and was extremely understanding when we had to reschedule twice due to covid. We finally married on the 18th of May and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Sarah made sure everything ran smoothly and ensured we had a perfect day. Overall our experience was very positive and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this venue.
So many options on how to do your wedding, Sarah is such a beautiful person, she just does everything she can to help make sure its perfect for you ! Our day was perfect 🙂
“We held our wedding at Pioneer Country in July 2022, after a postponement due to covid in 2021 (which PC handled amazingly). Our entire experience was fantastic right from the planning – the added bonus of having an in-house wedding planner (Sarah) made it so much easier, nothing was too much trouble and we were able to customise our day to suit what we wanted with her guidance – through to the actual event, every single thing ran smoothly thanks to their experienced staff. The venue is gorgeous and offers everything you’d want from a country style venue. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Pioneer Country for all your wedding needs. They really are a one-stop shop. you won’t be disappointed. “
Pioneer Country is an absolutely beautiful venue and has amazing photo shoot areas. Sara was absolutely amazing and helpful with everything we needed and communication was always timely and on point. I could not recommend this venue enough
We loved our Pioneer Country experience. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue. From the beginning Sarah and the Pioneer Country team were so welcoming and helpful. Sarah’s attention to detail and knowledge of her venue made everything so perfect for us, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Our dream wedding became a reality thanks to Sarah and her team. We highly recommend Pioneer Country. Brad & Bek
