Dolly Snowgums health update

Dolly’s many fans have been beside themselves over recent days following her recent health scare.

Snowgums is pleased to confirm that Dolly is now back to about 90% health and warming Randy’s grass patch at nights as well as being at or near the front of the bread and salad and food waste queue when goodies are being handed out (and fought over).

Dolly wishes to thank all those that expressed concern for her health in those scary moments.  They know who they are.

If you are yet to become a Dolly fan, please feel free to ‘like’ Dolly at her official Facebook site.

Pre-shipping update

Snowgums Festoon lighting for hire

Excitement is building at Snowgums.

The last of the rustic wedding hire equipment is delivered tomorrow (Monday 14th January 2019).

The only piece still to arrive at the shipping point, last to arrive, is the Marquee.

Unsurprisingly the marquee, measuring 10m x 25m is biggest item.

It is also the heaviest taking up a wopping 7m3 and weighing several tonnes in total.

Apparently the theory is that the biggest is loaded last.  Straight off the truck and into the container.

This minimises handling given its weight and bulk.

Once loaded into the container, the container and its products are fumigated and sent.

So it seems we are now all but in readiness for the goods to sail from Shenzhen to Sydney?


The container’s arrival at Snowgums is due roughly the week of 4th February 2019.

The first wedding is booked for Snowgums on the 23rd February 2019 for the gorgeous bride Jess (and Chris).

Equipment news

Today’s exciting arrival at our depot in Foshan China was our sparkling LED festoon lighting, LED fluorescent and LED strip lighting (pictured).

Snowgums has bought roughly 200m of festoon lighting plus a shipload of spare bulbs.

It has also bought LED fluorescent lighting (as a budget alternative) plus LED strip lighting – similar by cooler than fairy style lights.  These will be used to decorate the marquee’s exterior.  A range of other decorative items are also available for hire.

Web updates

Visitors to our website may also have noticed some changes.

We are setting up some tools to enable event organisers to request a quote more easily.

The tools are still a work in progress and will go fully live by early February.

In the meantime organisers can request a quote via email or phone 1300-12snow (1300-127669) or using our registration form.
