Farm Venues in the Shoalhaven

Choosing a farm wedding in the Shoalhaven is exciting for everyone - both you, and your guests.  The landscape from its country paddocks to pristine white sand beaches, turquoise water and native bush surrounds makes it one of the most spectacular places in the world.  Adventure starts here!

For water lovers there’s surf beaches, kite surfing, snorkelling, diving and paddle boarding.  If you're engaging in water sports try to avoid bumping into a whale :) From May to November the annual migration takes place and you’ll easily spot whales heading to warmer waters from the coastline.  If you’re having a spring wedding in the area, keep your eye out for the newborn whale calves on their way back south. 

Aside from the other aquatic wildlife attractions including seals, penguins and dolphins, you might also spot an elusive platypus if you’re staying or getting married at one of the area’s many farms.  Just about all farms have resident kangaroos, the area has a healthy population of wombats and the birdlife here is to behold.

Several South Coast farms have enough onsite accommodation to sleep your entire guest list. These farms enable you and your guests to stay for the weekend, hiring the property for your exclusive use of all facilities onsite.

The South Coast also has plenty of not-exactly-a-farm wedding venues surrounded by farmland.  There are wineries where cows graze in the surrounding paddocks.  There’s a farmlet with affordable marquee options.  There’s also a horse farm where you can enjoy a peaceful and private wedding ceremony on the banks of the Shoalhaven River followed by a rustic reception in the converted indoor arena. 

Whatever style of farm wedding you’re planning, there’s a property for it at a South Coast wedding venue.
