Waterfront Wedding Venues in NSW

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 coastline, cliffs and national park provide a picturesque backdrop for many of the state’s waterfront wedding venues. Here's a list of just beach wedding venues dotted along the NSW coast.

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.
