Best Marquee Wedding Venues in NSW

Choosing a marquee venue for your wedding provides the ultimate romantic setting for a reception under the stars. And there’s a huge list of other benefits too. Marquee venues offer reliability against the weather, they’re the perfect blank canvas to style as your own and they’re incredibly flexible in how you can use them.

The range of marquee venues in NSW is wonderfully broad. On this list, there’s venues that cater for small weddings of up to 60 guests right up to large weddings of well over 300. There are luxury marquee venues with the likes of polished flooring and built in stone bars, and at the opposite end of the price spectrum there’s also cheap marquee venues where it’s possible to host your wedding for under $50 per head - with a ceremony & catering included.

These 47 venues in NSW offer marquee weddings in traditional Hocker marquees, Sperry tents, teepees & yurts. Where marquees are permanent structures at the venue they’ve been identified below, while other locations are more DIY and you’ll need to hire a marquee specifically for your wedding.

Without further ado, here’s our list of preferred marquee venues for weddings in NSW...
