Leahton Park is a beautiful and well appointed country/western style venue that is only 10 km from Charters Towers with a sealed road to the front gate!
Whatever your wedding theme, we can make it work for you. From a country or western wedding to a casual bohemian event or even a more traditional/formal gathering, the ambience at Leahton Park will instantly captivate you and your guests. A feature of the venue is the magical outdoor festoon lighting where there is room to seat 150 people in comfort
There is also the 'Wagon Wheel' dining shed which will seat up to 80 people. The 'Longhorn Bar' is as Western as you can get and is perfect for the serving of all of your beverages...
This is a great and unique venue for your function/ceremony and/or reception. As we don't cater for meals, you are welcome to organise a caterer of your choice and alcohol is BYO. For larger weddings or functions, we encourage you to take advantage of the local bus company who can schedule convenient coach drop-offs and pick-ups prior to your ceremony and also during and after the reception.
Leahton Park is Covid-Safe Compliant and we can provide a Covid-Safe Event Checklist for your function.
