A Queensland Summer Wedding

It is no secret that a summer wedding in South East Queensland can sometimes be uncomfortable. With soaring temperatures and humid weather, it is common for couples to opt for the cooler seasons of spring and autumn to get married.

Wedding Coordinator Sarah Buckle, from Spicers Peak Lodge is an expert in delivering brides their picture perfect wedding and from her experience there is one place perched on top of a hill in the Great Dividing Range that provides the ultimate landscape for a Queensland summer wedding.

“Spicers Peak Lodge is simply the most amazing location for a summer wedding in Queensland,” said Sarah.

“The first thing I noticed when I started at Spicers Peak Lodge was the weather, not just the enchanting clouds that roll across the mountains or the endless blue sky days, but the climate is so different. With the average temperature at the lodge being 8-10 degrees cooler than Brisbane, our seasons provide us with a chilly winter (often in the negative temperatures), but best of all a temperate and wonderfully pleasant summer,” she said.

The lodge is located 1,100m above sea level on 8,000 acres of natural beauty situated in the Main Range National Park just 2 hours drive from Brisbane.
