What types of picnics do you offer?

We offer hamper or platter options, as well as custom cakes:

  • Picnic hampers packed for anywhere up to 20 people from a range of four hamper menus – presented in a basket/s, along with picnic equipment, rug and cushions, delivered to, set up and collected from your location of choice for a two hour experience.
  • Perfection platters for 10-40 people – a choice of four platters.
  • We think a cake can be a picnic all on its own really.  See our range of cakes for ideas and contact us to order your own special cake.

Where do you deliver?

We deliver anywhere on the Gold Coast between 6am-6pm to your choice of park, holiday accommodation, or even your own backyard.    Whether you are enjoying a holiday on the Gold Coast or you are a Gold Coast local, we can suggest a range of lovely picnic locations.  Some of our favourites are the Gold Coast Botanic Gardens in Benowa, Paradise Point Parklands, and anywhere with an ocean view.  Of course, we are equally happy to leave this big decision to you.  For a picnic location in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Tamborine Mountain, Logan, Brisbane, or northern New South Wales there is an additional delivery fee starting at $60 – please contact us to arrange delivery outside of the Gold Coast.

Please note that the Gold Coast City Council regulates picnic operators.  We are required to be licenced and insured, and there is a booking and permit process required for picnics in all public park locations (which we take care of for you – please allow three weeks notice prior to your event date for this reason).  Further, GCCC does not permit picnic operators to set up on Gold Coast beaches in accordance with Local Law 10 Bathing Reserves.  For more information, please visit GCCC website or contact

How much is delivery of hampers?

Delivery, set up and collection is already included in the picnic hamper cost – but, between you and me, it’s $100.  If you’d rather pick up your hamper from us (we’re at the northern end of the Gold Coast), there’s no need to pay a delivery fee, is there?

How much notice is required?

We require at least three week’s notice for all bookings and payment in full at time of booking, along with a $100 refundable equipment deposit (for hamper and platter bookings).  Booking dates are subject to availability and only secured upon full payment.

How long does the picnic experience last?

In your memory, forever…but, on the day, it’s a two hour experience.   You arrive, relax and enjoy your picnic, then we’ll return to pack up.  Just let us know when you book if you want additional time and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

Can I just have the food?

Already have the picnic equipment?  No problem at all.  To save you the un-fun part of a picnic (the preparation), let us organise the food and drinks for you.  Collect it from us or we can deliver. Contact us for food only enquiries.

Do you cater for dietary requirements?

Yes, absolutely.  Our picnic hampers and platters are designed to be diet-friendly.  Please notify us when booking of any food allergies or special dietary requirements. Please note that some picnic items may contain nuts, fish and dairy.

Can we alter hamper or platter packages?

We are happy to discuss a custom picnic package to suit your particular event.  For the ultimate picnic experience, Picnic Perfection will style and stage a dream picnic at the location of your choice.  Perfect for a marriage proposal, special surprise, to mark an important milestone or for a celebration to be remembered.  POA.

Can you provide alcohol?

Our hampers include non-alcoholic beverages.  Gift hampers can include red, white or sparkling wine.  We cannot deliver alcohol to the purchasing party.  The good news is that we offer eskies, ice, and champagne glasses for hire.

Can we hire equipment for our event?

Absolutely.  We have a huge (and ever-growing) collection of items in a range of colours and styles available for hire to make any event totally amazing.

  • rugs/throws – $20 each
  • cushions – $5 each

Prices are for pick-up from our Helensvale base and hire period is 48 hours.

If delivery and/or styling is required, additional costs apply.

What if we need to cancel?

Cancellations and rescheduling are accepted – with a minimum of one week’s notice. Cancellations made with less than one week remaining before scheduled picnic date will forfeit the total booking cost.

What happens if it rains?

As much as we would like to, we can’t control the weather. That’s why we ask you to nominate a wet weather location when you book.  On the day, if the weather isn’t cooperating, we’ll contact you to confirm delivery to the wet weather location.

How do I book?

Three options exist for booking – online, via email or on 0417 791 425.

Payment options include PayPal for Business or via electronic bank transfer.

How do we know you care about the food in your picnics?

At Picnic Perfection, we care about food safety and we are committed to preparing the highest quality food utilising the most current food hygiene standards.  We are licenced through the Gold Coast City Council, we hold relevant Food Safety Supervisor qualifications, and we are fully insured for both public and product liability.  All food preparation and delivery complies with the Food Act 2006.  We are committed to using only Australian grown fresh ingredients – sourced locally – wherever possible.

Contact us with any other questions and we’ll be happy to help.
