One of the very first things Australia did well was farm. And there are some absolutely stunning farming properties which have been converted into wedding venues for you to host your perfect day.
A farm wedding is a special event in a category of its own. It is not quite a country or rustic setting, although it will fit nicely into both of those genres. It is something next level, something extra again.
If you dream of a relaxed day surrounded by your friends and family and the breathtaking rolling farmlands and native bush, friendly animals and some incredible photo opportunities, then the venues on this list are for you.
Farm weddings can be big or small, intimate and reserved, or giant all night fiestas under the stars. Farm weddings are warm and inviting, and take you and your guests in with big open arms. If your day is about feasting, fun and friendship, then a farm wedding is for you.
