Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the minimum number of guests?
Our minimum number of guests is 50 adults or adult equivalents or you can upgrade your menu to bring your spend up to the minimum spend of $2000.00 for smaller more intimate groups (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
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 $3,000 on your venue hire if you choose to hold your wedding on a Sunday, 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?
Glamping is allowed however we note that most wedding parties take advantage of our proximity (6 km) to Coolangatta and its world class accommodation.
Rydges Airport Hotel & The Pink Hotel Coolangatta also offer special discounts for Pioneer Country wedding guests.
Alternatively The Colonial & River Retreat caravan parks are walking distance and offer affordable riverfront cabins.
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.
