Waterfront Wedding Venues in NSW

Australia offers an incredible choice of waterfront wedding venues, which is no surprise given we have one of the world’s longest coastlines. From beachfront and clifftop venues with ocean views, to riverfront properties and lakeside retreats. There are literally hundreds of waterfront wedding venues in Australia, and a diverse selection of them are right here in NSW.

Between the popular holiday spot of Byron Bay in northern NSW to the less well trodden beaches on the state’s far south coast, 2,137km of coastal beaches, cliffs and national park provide a picturesque backdrop for many of the state’s waterfront wedding venues.

But it’s not just oceanfront venues that make Australia one of the world’s best wedding destinations. Our inland rivers and waterways provide the setting for some of the country’s most Instagrammable wedding venues. From luxury oceanfront properties to affordable riverside retreats, here are 65 of our most recommended waterfront wedding venues in NSW.

Rustic Wedding Venues in NSW

The rustic wedding venue was once the exclusive domain of old tin sheds and wooden barns on rural farm properties. Nowadays, rustic wedding venues include repurposed & renovated barns as well as purpose built spaces that feature a more modern decor.  In NSW, farms and other country locations provide a wonderfully eclectic selection of rustic wedding venues in Sydney to Byron Bay, the far South Coast and everywhere in between. 

Interestingly, the popularity of rustic wedding venues has not diminished since the concept of getting married in a shed first burst onto the events scene. They are very unique wedding venues with a down to earth and relaxed atmosphere that promise fun and a little frivolity. Attributes that closely align with the personality & lifestyles of the couples that choose to get married in them. 

Rustic wedding venues in NSW include farms, wineries, resorts, country-style homesteads, gardens, olive groves, bed & breakfasts, heritage listed properties and luxury estates. These locations offer a mix of indoor & outdoor reception venues and a variety of spaces for wedding ceremonies.

Farms and bush bound properties in the countryside are the ideal location for rustic weddings. Purpose built structures on these properties offer a blank canvas for a more luxe wedding theme whereas original or refurbished barns, sheds, horse stables and the like set the scene for a more earthy, 'event on the land' type of wedding. Either type of venue can be styled to create the perfect rustic or boho vibe you’re aiming for.

Rustic wedding venues all have their own unique personalities. Their location provides the setting for your wedding and their architecture and decor provides the backdrop. It’s the combination of these two elements that create the vibe on your wedding day. On the list below, you’ll find a huge range of rustic wedding venues in a wonderful variety of settings & locations throughout NSW.
