You are most welcome to run a ticket bar where your guests pay for their own drinks. You could also pay for the bar and once the limit is reached you can either top it up or it can go onto being a ticket bar, if you would prefer for your guests to pay for their own alcohol and you pay for soft drinks this can also be organised this is entirely up to you, and this can be increased depending on what suits your budget. No other alcohol is to be brought on site unless pre-agreed in writing by Raintree Management. Please discuss your various set up options with our Managing coordinator.
Due to the wide and expansive grounds Raintree has to offer there are multiple, often very different, venue sites across the premises which you can pick and choose from to best fit your event type and size. We have more secluded and quaint sites such as Kingfisher creek which is hugged by rolling grass hills or wide and colourful spaces such as under our Lady Chancellor on the main lawn which turns a burnt orange in the fall. Positioned right next to our river gives an overture of natures beauty in the background to top off most of Raintree's picturesque venues. We recommend a first hand tour of these sites when planning your event.
Kingfishers creek is a quaint site location just south
of our wandering river. This shallow creek is shaded
by ancient acacia trees and banked with rolling slopes
of grass. This riverside location is ideal for large family
picnics and celebrations or a small romantic ceremony.
Over the years we have seen some fantastically talented musicians, singers, djs and performers.
we have a vetting list of recommended artists who we can put you in touch with, the groups or individuals must bring their own equipment required for the performance but we can assist in setting up the stage, lighting and electrical connections.
With the right entertainment you can quickly elevate your event from great to unforgettable.
