Kalinya Estate, New South Wales, Wedding Venue, Hero Image 36 +


Kalinya Estate is an award-winning, 5-star wedding venue located an hour from Sydney. Luxurious and modern, this Estate combines its heritage bones with modern design, offering couples a beautiful place for their reception, while ceremonies can be held in the magical gardens. With capacity for 200 guests and on-site lodging, this venue is a must for any couples after a dreamy wedding experience.

Nestled on a five-acre property just over an hour out of Sydney sits Kalinya Estate, a luxurious, modern wedding venue that offers complete privacy. Lavishly restored and renovated, this Estate is an excellent find if you’re after an award-winning venue that feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Kalinya Estate offers couples a truly lovely reception space: The Carriage House, a function room with space for up to 150 seated guests or 200 cocktail-style. It has high ceilings, festoon lighting, an outdoor travertine terrace, and a timber dance floor. The best part? This stunning centre opens up onto the award-winning gardens. These enchanting gardens are the perfect place to say ‘I do’, with multiple beautiful locations on the manicured grounds for you to choose from - you’ll be spoiled for choice.

This beautiful Estate also offers a unique, boutique experience, and asks that their couples enjoy the luxurious, secluded Estate for at least two nights. This means you can take time to relax before or after your wedding, in either The Homestead (an immaculate venue with colonial architecture and craftsmanship), The Lodge (an 18th century French-rural chalet with exposed timber beams under elevated ceilings) or The Barn. 

You’ll want to enjoy the breathtaking surroundings, exquisite 5-star accommodation, relaxed recovery breakfast, and native beauty of this tranquil area, too. And with a large swimming pool, romantic gazebo, state-of-the-art equipment, woodfire pizza oven, ornamental grape vine walkway, outdoor hot tub, and private fire pit, there’s plenty of reasons to love Kalinya Estate.

“We had our wedding there on the weekend and it is still just as beautiful (if not more) than when we first saw the place 18 months ago. Mandy and her team were amazing and made it an experience to remember. Everyone kept saying they didn’t know this place existed (we hope more people can share in this magical place).  We hope to return one day in the future to relive our special day.” Emily

I recently held my wedding at Kalinya Estate and it was the most amazing experience not only for us, but also for our family and friends. It is the absolute best wedding venue! We stayed for 2 nights and made full use of the facilities which were so much fun! We had lots of children stay and they all said it was the best weekend they've ever had, they did not want to leave. Mandy is the most attentive host you will find, she went above and beyond to make sure not only our stay was perfect but also the wedding. Thanks so much Mandy xx

Mandy is extraordinary - such a beautiful soul who went out of her way to make our wedding the happiest day of our lives (and we’ve been around for a while!) . Kalinya Estate is simply stunning with a wonderful energy. So many exquisite sites for photos - it’s a photographers dream!

Our wedding at Kalinya Gardens was above and beyond what we had hoped for. Mandy is one in a million and made all our dreams come true. Nothing was too big or too small for her to give it her full attention. She has an amazing list of contacts for all your needs including caterers, florists, hairdressers and helpers of any kind. Kalinya Gardens is so beautiful it literally takes your breath away and makes you feel very spoilt and special. The accommodation is 5 star and having the Sunday after our wedding to laze by the pool , play tennis, chess, petanque and just explore the grounds made it such a perfect weekend. We can't thank Mandy enough for making our wedding weekend so perfect. We will definitely be back.

Our wedding at Kalinya Estate was an absolute dream come true! We hosted a three-day event where all our guests stayed, and it was a celebration filled with joy, relaxation, and unforgettable memories. The estate itself is breathtakingly beautiful, providing the perfect backdrop for our special day. The photos turned out stunningly against the backdrop of Kalinya's picturesque surroundings. Throughout our stay, our guests enjoyed the luxurious amenities, especially the refreshing pool and the plethora of activities available. Whether it was lounging by the pool or playing tennis, there was something for everyone to enjoy. Mandy and Bec, the wonderful hosts of Kalinya Estate, played a pivotal role in making our wedding getaway seamless and stress-free. From the moment we booked the estate to our arrival, their exceptional communication and genuine care made us feel relaxed and taken care of. They are truly some of the nicest people we've ever met. Our wedding getaway at Kalinya Estate exceeded all our expectations and was everything we had dreamed of. We wouldn't have changed a single thing about our experience. Thank you Mandy and Bec for making our special day truly unforgettable. We can't recommend this venue highly enough!

Our wedding at Kalinya Estate was a dream. The property is gorgeous and the ability to stay on-site with some family and friends in luxury homes and facilities (jacuzzi, pool, tennis courts, squash courts, and more) made for a really fun and unique experience. Mandy and Bec are also great communicators which definitely helped make the whole preparation process go smoothly. They are super responsive and are very accommodating. We highly recommend booking Kalinya Estate for a wedding and hopefully one day will come back for a nice friend/family weekend getaway!
