60 Best Destination Wedding Venues in NSW

Destination wedding venues provide an all-in-one location where the ceremony and wedding reception can be held in the same place. Most of the following destination venues in NSW provide accommodation onsite and many provide exclusive use of the entire wedding location with accommodation bookings.

Destination weddings are often a favoured choice among couples who are eloping and there are several wedding locations that cater for smaller events on the list below. A destination wedding also provides a wonderful opportunity to share extended time in the company of loved ones. If you're looking for a wedding venue where your guests can stay with you for several days, you're in the right place. Whether your wedding has 4 guests or 350, the following destination venues offer a variety of locations where you can relax and enjoy a whole weekend (or longer) celebrating with family and friends. 

The most popular wedding destinations in NSW are commonly the busier tourist places. Regions such as Byron Bay, the Hunter Valley, Blue Mountains and the South Coast are popular wedding destinations as they offer ease of planning with plenty of venues, accommodation, amenities and things to do in the area.

Beach resorts, luxury hotels and other venues with self contained accommodation are ideal places for destination weddings. These venues provide the best of both worlds, allowing couples to share more quality time with friends and family while also providing autonomy for the couple and their wedding guests.

NSW offers several wedding destinations for couples who wish to get off the beaten track. From outback farms to secluded bush resorts, these wedding venues provide the ultimate setting for intimate weekend escapes. While some of these venues provide sufficient accommodation for the entire guest list, others may require a few of your more adventurous guests to embrace the glamping option. Most wedding venues situated in locations with limited accommodation nearby have glamping tents available to hire, or can refer you to businesses in the region who will set up a glamping village for you. If this option sparks your interest, you might like this list of glamping venues in NSW.

NSW offers an eclectic choice of destination wedding venues from the beach to the bush to the Aussie outback. Here are the 60 most beautiful places for destination weddings in NSW.

45 Affordable Wedding Venues in NSW

Affordable wedding venues are found in all regions of NSW from popular Sydney beaches to hotspots like Byron Bay. There are cheap venues on the waterfront where you can host your wedding ceremony & reception in the one location, and there are budget country retreats that you can hire exclusively for the entire weekend. Whatever type of wedding you've got your heart set on, there's plenty of affordable venues in NSW where you can bring that vision to life. 

A cheap wedding venue offers packages that cost below the state average according to their location & what they offer. As a general rule, affordable venues usually cost no more than $100 per head as part of a wedding package with catering & beverages. Some of the cheapest venues on this list offer all-inclusive wedding packages with accommodation packaged into 3 day hire. Once the cost of accommodation is subtracted (which can be covered by attendees) the price per person falls well below the state average for weddings in NSW.

The region in which you choose to get married will have a substantial impact on the cost of venue hire and catering. It’s much easier to keep costs down in less populated areas of NSW such as rural towns like Mudgee or Wagga Wagga and regional holiday spots like Tathra on the South Coast and Forster or Yamba on the North Coast. Whereas finding cheap venues in Sydney is more of a challenge. 

Another great way to keep wedding costs down is to plan your wedding in the off peak season, which in NSW is between May and July. Most affordable wedding venues have more availability in the winter months and some charge discounted rates both for venue hire and all-inclusive packages.

Your other option is to take advantage of discounted rates that venues will usually offer to host your mid-week wedding. Fridays and Sundays attract cheaper wedding packages at some venues too. 

The following is a curated list of affordable wedding venues in NSW. All of these venues are either DIY & BYO (so you can hire your own caterers according to your budget), or they provide all-inclusive packages that cost substantially less than other venues.

With the average cost of a wedding being well over $36,000 in Australia, competition for affordable wedding venues particularly in high density areas, is high. The earlier you're able to get organised and make decisions like where you want to get married and when, the better chance you'll have of getting first access to the more affordable wedding venues in that location. Wedding venues that offer cheap packages usually have limited availability and book out quickly. Which is why, if possible, it's a good idea to enquire 18 - 24 months in advance. This gives you the best chance of booking a cheap wedding venue in some of the best locations in NSW.  View the full list of affordable wedding venues in NSW.
