Our Complete Guide to Wollongong Wedding Venue Hire

Wildlife and wine tours, helicopter flights over the coastline, and swimming in freshwater lagoons are just a few of the highlights your guests can look forward to during your Wollongong wedding weekend. Located just an hour and a half from Sydney, Wollongong wedding venues include wineries, country manors, historic homesteads, rustic barns, and restaurants that double as waterfront wedding venues.

At Easy Weddings, our Venue Finders have selected the best wedding venues in Wollongong and throughout the South Coast of NSW. Your only task now is to decide which is the perfect fit for your dream Illawara region wedding.

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

  • Spending the morning of your wedding surfing at Wollongong North Beach or The Shallows, or dipping into the rock pools of Austinmer or Bulli
  • Kicking off your wedding weekend with a South Coast wine tour with your entire wedding party
  • Adventuring into the walking trails around the forests and rocky cliffs of Mt. Keira in the Illawarra mountains on the morning following your Wollongong wedding
  • Your wedding morning photo session at Bombo Headland Quarry
  • Photos with your wedding party at the Wollongong Lighthouse, in the cactus house in Wollongong Botanic Gardens, or in the Illawarra Rhododendron Gardens
  • Your wedding ceremony at the timber-ceiling Wollongong Mission Uniting Church in the rose gardens of Wollongong Botanic Gardens
What’s the best time of year for a wedding in Wollongong?

The prime time for Wollongong weddings is spring followed by autumn, with summer being the busiest time of year for tourism in South Coast NSW. Though the region has generally pleasant weather year-round, June to August can be on the cool side, and many couples who marry in the Illawarra region in winter gravitate towards indoor wedding venues.

What are the popular wedding styles in Wollongong?

Wollongong wedding venues range from laidback beachfront restaurants to romantic garden settings to luxury resorts on the beach. Wedding styles in the Illawarra region, therefore, follow similar styling trends like relaxed, Boho wedding themes, elegant secret garden weddings, and glamorous marquee weddings overlooking the sea.

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

The most popular Wollongong events both take place in October — Wollongong Triathlon and Yours and Owls Festival — but neither should have a significant impact on your wedding plans. That said, tourism swells in June, January, and September in Wollongong and it’s likely that you and your wedding guests will experience higher guest room rates during those months.

Should we consider any wedding venue locations near Wollongong?

Lake Illawarra, Mount Kembla, Kiama, and Shell Cove are all beautiful wedding destinations near Wollongong. If you’re looking for a similar region of coastal cliffs and great wineries, we recommend extending your search to include the Central Coast of NSW or the Port Macquarie region.
