Oaklands Event Centre

Situated on the beautiful Sapphire Coast, Oaklands Event Centre is an idyllic location for your special day.


Oaklands Event Centre was the original site for the township of Pambula located in the Sapphire Coast. The three Imlay brothers established "Pamboola Station" in 1833 before members of the Walker Family bought and set up their local holding firm of William Walker & Co. The Walker family built the historic homestead "Oaklands" in 1847.  In 1908 the thirty feet high grand oak trees were declared two of the largest English Oaks in the state. These still stand today.

The Homestead has been tastefully restored with quality furniture and fittings that are designed to create a luxurious and restful stay, including two bathrooms and three queen size bedrooms. Oaklands’ Homestead is perfect for the Bridal party staying the night before and getting ready on the day, with a wonderful North-facing sun room and, of course, the perfect place to stay the night of the wedding as newlyweds.


Oaklands Event Centre provides two stunning outdoor wedding ceremony options. The most popular choice is the gardens surrounding the beautiful Sapphire Coast Homestead with the Heritage listed Oak tree. For a smaller wedding, the courtyard at the Events Centre is equally beautiful. Oaklands Event Centre can also provide a wet weather ceremony option for weddings on 120 guests or less in the Events Centre making it a truly versatile wedding venue.

Oaklands Event Centre was purposely built to garner a very rustic yet elegant atmosphere and is a beautifully constructed complex drawing inspiration from rural yesteryear. The facilities offer a warm and inviting country feel, with all the necessary modern comforts. The Events Centre interior operable walls provide adaptability for your wedding and comfortably seating up to 240 guests. The beautiful gardens provide the perfect setting for you and your guests to enjoy pre-reception drinks and canapés. The Oaklands team will ensure your wedding is an exceptional experience and the venue flexibility also offers the degree of formality you desire. The team at this Sapphire Coast wedding venue will attend to every detail in true Oaklands style and flair, leaving you and your partner to enjoy your special day.


Oaklands Event Centre's chefs will provide you with all the options required to amaze your guests. Whether it is a cocktail style event, a stunning 3-course meal or a buffet with all the trimmings, the options are limitless. Packages will be tailor made for you according to your number of guests, budget, desires and preferences. Gluten free, lactose-free, vegetarian, vegan and allergies can all be catered for with prior notice.
