How Your Wedding Can Help Fire Affected Regions In QLD
Considering tying the knot in Australia’s sunniest state? Here’s how your wedding can help fire-affected regions in QLD.

We’ve chatted about the impact Australia’s bushfire crisis has had on regions across New South Wales and Victoria but let’s face it – the entire country was alight over summer, including Queensland.

The fires that swept across the Sunshine Coast, Southern Queensland Country and beyond were devastating, not only to people and properties but to the native animals and unique ecosystems that have always made this sunny state so special.

Fortunately, plenty of our beloved wedding venues and wedding vendors are still standing but with less visitors to these regions, the impact of the bushfire crisis is still being felt.

If you’re getting hitched and want to help a fellow human, why not consider one of these fire-affected regions in QLD for your big day? Weddings are one of the best ways to boost local economies and we can guarantee these wedding peeps will go above and beyond to make your celebration one to remember.

Below we’ve rounded up the hardest hit regions in QLD that would love your support.

Sunshine Coast

Pristine beaches and lush hinterland are trademarks of the Sunshine Coast – a region that’s attracted nature lovers and food enthusiasts alike for decades. With plenty to do and see (diving, fishing, hiking, shopping, eating, drinking etc.) couples tend to opt for an entire wedding weekend here.

Southern Queensland Country

Southern Queensland Country is a beautiful wedding destination where paddock to plate cuisine is the norm and where boutique wines flow freely. There are plenty of rural farm-stays and stunning national parks to enjoy, and enough fresh country air for everyone.
