Thank you all at the Highfields Cultural Centre including the caterers for such a wonderful evening. There were nothing but positive reviews from all of our guests with the staff, food and the venue itself. By far the most professionally run venue in the Toowoomba area. We will most definitely be recommending you to anyone looking for a venue.
We had the most beautiful reception at the Highfields Cultural Centre. You all did such a wonderful job and made all the lead up work hassle free. Thank you for making our day so special. We tell every engaged couple we meet to go to the Highfields Cultural Centre for their wedding as we had such a fantastic time and you all were so friendly and professional. Keep up the good work.
