Kookaburra Hideaway is not just any wedding venue, it is a unique gem! Located in the heart of the Hunter Valley, this country venue offers a fabulous country setting that overlooks the stunning Hunter Valley region. Nestled on 25 acres of land, you'll find the ideal pet-friendly wedding venue surrounded by paddocks, roaming cattle, kangaroos and the breathtaking Brokenback Mountains.

Looking for a wedding venue where you can make it as DIY as you choose? Look no further than Kookaburra Hideaway! Unlike other DIY venues that leave you to do everything yourself, Kookaburra Hideaway offers a range of options to suit your needs. Even with the most DIY option, you'll still get a cleaned venue before and after, and it will be totally set up for you with styling and gift chests, complete with all the basics you need.

As you arrive, you will be welcomed by the stunning views of the Hunter Valley Vineyard region and the Brokenback Mountain Range. Kookaburra Hideaway is a winner of the 2023 Best Boutique Farm Accommodation and Highly Commended Wedding Venue, offering gorgeous accommodation with stunning views over the Hunter Valley.

At Kookaburra Hideaway, you'll have a wedding coordinator and a runner with you for your setup, the running of the wedding, and the close at the end. You'll also have a speaker to play your ceremony music. If you don't have a DJ for the reception, there's a speaker set up for your music so that it can be played from your iPhone or device, plus three wireless microphones for your speeches. And to ensure you get to enjoy your day, there's a bar supervisor and bar staff to take care of everything.

Kookaburra Hideaway was the most incredible wedding venue! It offered everything we wanted and more- property on site, DIY food and drink and an incredible outdoor area flooded with fairylights! The best part about this venue is their coordinator Kal. She is absolute GOLD! There isn’t anything she couldn’t or wouldn’t do for us and went to so much effort to make us and our day that much more special!

The staff were very helpful, professional and happy to assist with all requests within reason. The venue coordinator kept in contact to ensure everything was scheduled and that nothing was forgotten or overlooked. On the night the coordinator and Bar manager were fantastic, all our guests and wedding crew spoke highly of both ladies.
