We are very proud to introduce our new function facilities, a superb venue for both intimate and grand scale wedding receptions. We welcome all members and non-members to enjoy our lovely grounds.

Thank you so very much for all of your help with our Wedding Renewal. Honestly, you surpassed expectations. The attention to detail provided by yourself and your team was unbelievable, I didn’t have to think about anything on the night, except keeping up with my grandchildren on the dancefloor. I know keeping us on schedule was a bit of a task for you and you managed it beautifully. I think what impressed us the most was your ability to make us feel like a close friend was organising our event, while maintaining a professional persona. The venue, food, decoration and service were second to
none and I have already given your details to friends for their functions. We will soon be booking our 50th birthday parties with the Squadron as I know they will be in good (better than good) hands.

“Belinda and the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron were outstanding, they looked after us from day one and help make our day the most perfect day. Everything was amazing from decoration, food, wine and hiring of the function room and lawn area. Belinda was always happy to anser questions and help us plan our day. We are soooo happy we picked this venue as it truly was more than perfect, everything was beyond how we imagined it and we loved every signal second there. Thank you so much Belinda and the RQYS Team”.

Trent and I would like to thank yourself and your fabulous team for putting on a great reception for us. The food and service was fantastic and made the day wonderful. A big thank you to the chef for such outstanding food. Warmest regards, Amy and Trent
“How wonderful and helpful Belinda was just made everything run smoothly, guests all complemented the venue and menu”
Thanks to you and the staff for making Natasha and Pete’s wedding such a wonderful occasion.
Guests repeatedly praised the venue, food and staff for a beautiful night.
Thank you so much for making our wedding day really special, everything was beautiful and I could see where you had attention to detail.
The food was great and very generous portions. We had some comments about how nice the red wine was and thank you for placing the ribbon on our wedding cake.
Hi Belinda and Team
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your team and you did. Our day was so perfect and the food was beyond incredible! Honestly if my dress had have allowed it I would have eaten everyones. (And I am the fussiest steak eater in Brisbane).
Nothing was too big or too small.
Everyone has only praise for the venue and it was extremely special because not only did Bens parents get married at your venue, but so did his mums parents – both of which are celebrating their 50th and 30th wedding anniversarys this year.
I also wanted to say thank you for picking the glass out of my dress after someone dropped a drink and left me stuck in the corner covered in glass and surrounded by beer. It was such a lovely gesture and I am so thankful you did that.
Thank you again for everything,
Georgia, Ben and Harry. xoxo
