The magical charms of Donnelly can make any wedding truly unique and memorable.
Donnelly Village. To put it simply, it's special.
A historic mill town nestled deep in the heart of Australia's South West karri forests, it's the perfect place for a unique escape from the hustles and hassles of modern life.
Simply serene, simply charming, simply great fun and value.
The magical charms of Donnelly has made many weddings, truly unique and memorable.
Donnelly is the only forest holiday destination in the region that has both large function centre facilities and ample accommodation to house hundreds of guests all in the one place.
To be honest, there's nothing fancy five star or silver service about a Donnelly wedding.
What we do have is billions of stars twinkling over-head at night, and silver rays through morning mist, served as the sun awakens on your special day.
A growing number of happy couples have picked up the tradition and staged their ceremony under the karris of Donnelly, with their families and friends staying in their own cottages and the bridal party in either the Old Boarding House or Monohan Lodge.
We're not wedding planners, but we do get a buzz from seeing the joy that people coming together in our village for their special day creates. We will go the extra mile to help you and your guests have a wonderful day.
A Donnelly wedding is full of heart and laughter and love and we encourage you to get in contact with us if you would like to find out more about this or any other idea you have for a special event and gathering.

I have just one word for our wedding at Donnelly River...perfect! If you're looking for a rustic, classically Australian wedding with all of your guests on site then Donnelly is the venue for you. With a host of different options for ceremony and reception locations, each more beautiful than the next! The staff was amazing and our guests were simply in awe of the location that brought young and old back to basics, taking in nature at every turn and winding down. I can not recommend it enough, it's the way weddings should be, simple, stress free and all about the love!
Such a beautiful place to be. I challenge anyone to go there and not be entranced. Emus and roos come to visit each afternoon whilst the blue wrens are flitting around, there is no traffic, no noise, just nature and silence and the wind catching the woodsmoke. It's like having your own village of friends and family and the people that you love all to yourself in the bush. The caretakers will bend over backwards to help you realise your dreams and make your day a great one. Highly recommended.
The friendly staff at the village helped us arrange accommodation and the wedding venue with lots of help! It was an incredible location, very scenic, and the village set-up was very convenient for guests being able to walk to-from the venue from their cottages. I couldn't recommend it more highly!!
