Our Complete Guide to Cairns Wedding Venue Hire

The shining attraction of the Cairns and Port Douglas region is the Great Barrier Reef and its surrounding white-sand beaches that stretch all along the coastline. Cairns wedding venues primarily focus on easy beach access and the stunning landscape as their main draw cards, and we completely agree that it’s all about the outdoors in this region. Picture your wedding ceremony in the sand at a luxury resort on Fitzroy Island or at a relaxed restaurant in Palm Cove. Whatever your tropical beach style, there’s something for everyone who wants to be feet-in-sand on their wedding day in this area.

Our Easy Weddings Venue Finders have scoped out the Great Barrier Reef region from Port Douglas to Cairns and are bringing you the best beachfront Cairns wedding venues, tropical gardens, and waterfront resorts.

Getting married in Cairns? Here are some of the highlights you can look forward to:

  • Visiting the Great Barrier Reef with your wedding party on the day before your wedding
  • Kicking off your wedding weekend with a yacht cruise at sunset with your closest friends and family
  • Visiting the glamorous restaurants at Palm Cove for your wedding brunch with your bridesmaids
  • Waking up on your wedding morning and heading to one of many local spas for a relaxing massage before the festivities begin
  • Your wedding ceremony at the open-air chapel on the beach at Alamanda Resort
  • Spending the day after your wedding driving up the scenic Cook Highway to go and explore Daintree Rainforest National Park
What’s the best time of year for a wedding in Cairns?

Cairns and Port Douglas enjoy a tropical weather pattern with hot and humid summers, but pleasant temperatures the rest of the year. Tropical cyclones and thunderstorms are likely in the months from December through March, so you’ll likely want to stick with an indoor wedding venue or a sturdy backup plan during this time. The best time to visit the region is between May through September, but hotels are busy year-round in this popular tourist destination.

What are the popular wedding styles in Cairns?

If you’re looking for a relaxed wedding ceremony on the beach followed by an outdoor wedding in the sand, Cairns is your ideal tropical beach wedding destination. Resort weddings are very popular here, allowing you to host your guests over a few days of sun, sand, and snorkelling with a bit of wedding revelry thrown into the mix. Cairns and Port Douglas both offer many luxury hotel wedding venues and open-air restaurants on the waterfront.

Are there any major events in Cairns that we should consider when planning our wedding?

Cairns and Port Douglas are busy throughout the year, but the peak tourist season is June to July when hordes of international tourists flock to the region and accommodation prices peak. There are events and activities here throughout the year, but none that should have a significant impact on your wedding day choice.

Should we consider any wedding venue locations near Cairns?

If you’d like to stay within the access area to the Great Barrier Reef, Townsville, Mackay, and the Whitsundays will be your other wedding destination options. If you’re happy to go to another region where the rainforest meets the sea, the Sunshine Coast, Byron Bay, and Coffs Harbour are all gorgeous alternatives to Cairns.
