Waterfront Wedding Venues on the South Coast

Looking for a waterfront wedding venue on the South Coast, NSW? The South Coast offers some of the best spots for waterfront ceremonies and receptions in New South Wales. From tranquil gardens on the Shoalhaven River to white sand beaches in Jervis Bay, waterfront venues on the NSW South Coast are as varied as they are picturesque.

For beach weddings, the southern coastline of NSW provides a plethora of choice. You'll find stunning beaches anywhere south of Wollongong to the Sapphire Coast. There's a particular concentration of coastal wedding venues in Jervis Bay and you can hire several of these places which come with their own private beach for your exclusive use.

Nowra and Terara are two towns that offer a choice of wedding venues on the Shoalhaven River. You can get married in your own private spot on the riverfront and the best thing about these all-in-one venues is their affordability. Wedding packages are largely DIY & BYO meaning you'll pay a venue hire fee for the exclusive use of the property and can choose all of your own wedding vendors.

From oceanfront hotels and coastal resorts to river and lakefront locations, these are the best waterfront wedding venues on the South Coast of NSW.
