Thank you for considering the Geraldton Turf Club for your up and coming event. We hope to assist you to create a successful and memorable event.

We understand that every event is unique and we will work with you to help you create your perfect event, whether it be a dream wedding, a corporate event or a wake.

Weddings

The Geraldton Turf Club offers both the opportunity to hold your reception and ceremony; we do understand that every wedding is unique and therefore encourage you to contact us to discuss your individual requirements;

Wedding Ceremony

Here at the Geraldton Turf Club we have a number of different areas you may choose to hold your ceremony. We have an arch way covered by roses where you may choose to be married under whilst your guests can look on from our large lawn area. Or you may choose another of our large lawn areas surrounded by gum trees. In the event of rain we do have an alternative under cover area. We have many areas and a number of rose gardens where you may wish to choose to have your photographs taken.

Wedding Reception

Whether you are having a cocktail party or a small intimate function we have an area to suit. For large functions we have our barn area which you can decorate to turn your reception into the perfect event. The barn area can open onto one of our sheltered lawn areas, perfect for that spring and summer evening or for a more relaxed wedding. For a small intimate reception you may choose to use one of our members’s area overlooking our race track with views towards the Golf Club.
The options for reception are varied, if you would prefer to have a marquee wedding we can help to organise one and we have two grassed areas where they may be set up.
