60 Best Destination Wedding Venues in NSW

Destination Weddings 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 wedding destinations in NSW provide accommodation onsite and are 3 day wedding venues where guests are able to stay onsite with you for the weekend. 

Destination weddings are often a favoured choice among couples planning a micro wedding and there's a great choice of small wedding destinations that cater for 20 - 50 guests available in New South Wales. The state also has a wonderful selection of intimate elopement venues with accommodation providing the perfect spot for a romantic getaway with just you two or a handful of loved ones.

The most popular wedding destinations in NSW are commonly in the state's most picturesque regions. Places such as Byron Bay, the Hunter Valley, Blue Mountains and the South Coast are sought after wedding destinations as they offer ease of planning with plenty of venues, accommodation, amenities and things to do in the area.

NSW also has lots of wedding destinations that are situated off the beaten track. From farm stays and private properties to secluded bush & beach resorts, these hidden wedding venues provide the ultimate setting for intimate weekend escapes.

While many destination venues provide sufficient accommodation for your entire guest list, others may require a few of your more adventurous guests to embrace the glamping option. Most wedding venues in NSW 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.
