Do we need a menu tasting?
We value fresh local produce, sourcing the majority of our ingredients from local farms and suppliers if we do not grow it in our own gardens. We pride ourselves on creating menus to cater any style of wedding and we know your food experience at The Acre will be exceptional – no tasting needed!
We do not currently offer individual menu testings. We do occasionally arrange group tasting events. Please let us know if you would like to register your interest in a tasting experience. Please note, tastings allow our couples to experience the quality and service of our food but are not customised to specific menu requests. If you would like to enjoy a fun dining experience with our partner restaurant, Lolita’s Mexican Cantina in Casuarina, you can book via their website or contact our planning team to assist.

Do you have any transport recommendations?
We highly recommend organising a transport option for your guests’ seamless departure to complete your perfect day! Arriving via uber or taxi is perfect, but a safe and efficient service to get everyone home is great idea! We recommend Currumbin Valley Coaches and Koala Koaches. Your planner can give you some guidance on what might best suit your guest numbers and budget.
