We host a By Appointment Only Open Day on the first Sunday of every month. Attendance is via firm bookings only so please visit our Bridal Viewings page to secure a spot on your preferred Sunday. Slip away from the city and share a romantic country drive together with your partner to join us and talk about your future together.

Hotel style

Our brides seem to all wish to spend their wedding night in a stunning Hotel either at the Gold Coast or Brisbane then fly out to somewhere exotic thereafter with both locations being under an hour of limo driving away. A helicopter wedding party exit is also exciting for all with the Versace being 12 minutes away via helicopter and Maryvale Spicer’s Peak couples resort being only 30 minutes away. What a lovely romantic wedding night together.

Apologies, like all vineyards, our licensing does not allow this though we sought special dispensation, hence had to charge corkage, to serve homemade Limoncello as a gift item for guests at a recent italian wedding. Saluté! We can happily woo you with our stunningly crisp Rosé and warm winter Cabernet…the you can see why we love our wine!

Sarabah Estate is 55 acres with 18 acres of vines and plenty of room for the manor house, dams and olive groves as well as our tractors and rangers to do all the work. So of course there is plenty of parking for 300 cars on site.

Yes. Murrays bus company has had their logistics professional out to view and measure both our causeway entrance and our mid vineyard turning circle.

Stretch limos have been here regularly and look amazing arriving into our estate up the long country driveway through our 3 metre high gate piers with imported English castle lantern atop.

Yes we have a sandstone edged country bonfire that we have had many a party around. This is something to note that needs managing with inebriated guests around hence there is a charge and some organizing involved as well as cutting, collecting and stacking all the firewood!

Totally, we love our pet pig, poodle, ducks, chickens and naughty alpacas and do welcome your pets as long as they play nice of course. No eating our chickens!
