Perched on the cusp of Wallis Lake, Thirty Three Degrees is a waterfront wedding venue offering magnificent sunset views. Elegant with plenty of natural light, this modern venue promises beautiful photo opportunities, a sophisticated atmosphere, and delectable dishes replete with bold flavours. You can also expect comprehensive wedding packages and grazing stations from this beloved establishment.


Tucked away in the coastal town of Tuncurry, upscale restaurant Thirty Three Degrees sits by Wallis Lake’s edge, promising couples a stunning waterside venue for their ceremony and reception. While known for their sparkling lake views, Thirty Three Degrees is also a popular destination for food enthusiasts, with this locale one of the best places in town for Sydney Rock Oysters. These scrumptious oysters grow naturally along 1500 kilometres of rugged NSW coastline, centred on latitude 33 degrees — hence the venue name.

Indeed, exquisite fare seemingly plucked fresh from the wildest of daydreams is a draw for couples. Still, it's the contemporary reception space, attentive service, and panoramic Lower North Coast views that seal the deal. At Thirty Three Degrees, indulge in some beautifully fresh oysters, watch the sun go down over crystal blue water, and enjoy one of the most merry nights of celebrating you’ve ever experienced.


“Light, refreshing and tasty menu — simple food is done very well. Amazing flavours and textures. Drinks to die for. Watch the sun go down over the lake and embrace the serenity. Friendly and attentive staff — couldn't have asked for more. — Jamie.

“33 Degrees is a modern light-filled venue with a large outdoor deck, located on Wallis Lake, Tuncurry side of the bridge. The natural oysters from their own farms were juicy, beautifully fresh, delightfully cold — the best I've had in many a year. The fish (cod)  was perfectly done — fresh, moist with a light batter, and hand-cut chips.  We ate early at 530 and I could see the restaurant would soon be full. What a delight to find a restaurant of this quality upon the Lake. to chat a delight to find a restaurant of this quality.” — Marion.
