Weddings at Kholo Gardens
Weddings at Kholo Gardens can be wonderful. The Gardens are on a 40 ha site at Muirlea, about 7km north of the Ipswich CBD on the banks of the Bremer River. They are one of Ipswich’s best kept secrets. There are acres of wide grassy lawns, picnic areas and a water feature surrounded by lush tropical greenery. There is also a wedding chapel and a function centre, both perfect for weddings at Kholo Gardens.
The chapel is a historic church relocated to the Gardens from Redbank several years ago. It can hold up to 50 people and is excellent for smaller weddings at Kholo Gardens. Having your wedding in the church takes away the stress of finding an alternative location for your marriage ceremony if it’s raining on your wedding day. The church has electricity connected but isn’t air conditioned.
The Function Centre
The function centre is a restored old Queenslander house just across the road from the chapel. It is perfect for anyone planning DIY weddings at Kholo Gardens because it has kitchen facilities and tables and chairs are provided. Hirers need to provide their own linen, cookware, cutlery and crockery. It’s a great spot for anyone catering for their own reception or bringing their own caterers. The function centre accommodates up to 50 people. There is plenty of car parking nearby.
Zone 1 is much nicer than it sounds. It’s a beautiful bookable lawn area beside the water feature and is large enough to hold up to 120 guests. It’s ideal for couples having their weddings at Kholo Gardens then going elsewhere for their receptions. There is also plenty of parking near Zone 1.
