When you think of the lovely Down Under, the first thing that pops to mind as the ideal destination for your wedding must be a slew of their crisp white beaches, right? And while they are the go-to pick for many couples, and rightfully so, you should also take into consideration other hidden nooks and beautiful resorts before you make your final choice.

After all, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime event, and it deserves to be commemorated in an equally mesmerizing spot. Let’s take a look at several notable locations you can choose from and that will do your special day justice with their breathtaking beauty!

Fairytale-worthy woodlands


Magical waterfalls, enchanting greenery all around and stunning architecture, is there anything else you could possibly wish for on your wedding day? The Queensland-located Paronella Park is a prime example of such an exquisite blend, and makes for an ideal choice for a wedding, as you’ll be in the embrace of a tropical rainforest that counts over 7500 lush plants and trees, further embellished by colourful butterflies and birds.

Immersed in the sounds, fragrances and unparalleled beauty of nature, you can celebrate your special day in the comforts of the modern world without ever leaving this little slice of paradise. The vast picnic area, the murmuring waterfalls on the premises and with just a pinch of wedding planning, and your event will be sublime.

In the heart of Australia

It’s for the brave of heart, unconventional, rebellious and unequivocally romantic – a wedding in the fiery red bosom of the continent! And considering its reputation, you can also scratch it off your bucket list, since the famous Uluru and Kata Tjuta are literally the epicentre of all outback experiences for the adventure spirits among you.

So what better way to celebrate your union than in the vast desert of this remote, sacred spot? With the backdrop of blossoming reds, oranges and yellows, interspersed with greenery, and wild flowers of all hues, you can invite your guests to dine with the most majestic view in the world – the sacred Uluru.

Coastal beauty at Byron Bay

This hidden gem of Australian East Coast is a perfect choice if you are looking for the mixture of natural and adventurous wedding experience! Byron Bay is well-known for its iconic Cape Byron lighthouse and the long beautiful beach - a paradise for romantic couples as well as surfers and adrenaline addicts. Here, you can find fantastic Byron Bay accommodation that will provide a unique setting for your big day. Located in the rainforest, it offers many exotic sites for a spectacular ceremony.

Sydney Harbour galore

How about getting the best of what Sydney has to offer wrapped up in a single delicious package of urban beauty and contemporary luxury? With the view of the Sydney Opera House, the incredible Harbour Bridge, and the ocean beneath your feet (quite literally), you can take your guests on one of numerous Sydney wedding cruises designed to accommodate an intimate, romantic wedding atmosphere.

Think delicious canapes, unforgettable cocktails, a private chef for the event, candlelit tables, exquisite service and all of that with a view of the sunset over the waves, along with Sydney’s own timeless panorama of city lights and abundant greenery. Now, there’s a way to mix the best of both the natural and the urban worlds!

Raise your glass

Yet another bucket-list experience and a foodie favourite is a wedding set in the wine country of Australia! However, brace yourselves for the selection process, because Australia doesn’t lack boutique or vast vineyards that are just so picturesque that you’ll find it almost impossible to settle for just one location.

From Hunter Valley, Lovedale in NSW and all the way to Victoria, the Land of Down Under is brimming with winery wedding venues that will keep both brides and grooms tipsy with bliss. You want never-ending views of vineyards and a dreamy gazebo for your wedding pictures? Head straight to Swan Valley just outside of Perth. You’d prefer a more rustic and vintage feel for your special day? Then the intimate atmosphere at the family-owned John Gehrig Wines will be right up your alley.
