South Coast Wedding Venue

Cockatoo Room wedding at Bawley Bush Cottages

Your Wedding, our Wedding Venue

No matter where you live, Bawley Bush Cottages on the NSW south coast is a must-consider wedding venue for your ceremony and reception. Our aim is to provide you the means to make your big life decision a happy, memorable and affordable event for you, your family and your guests.

If many of your prospective guests live in the geographic arc encompassing Sydney, Canberra and Eden then we are ideally located. However we have hosted weddings where a majority of guests have come from much further afield. And don't just take our word for how suitable we think our venue is, take a glance at the adjoining photography and the testimonial we have received from a bride and groom who chose to tie the knot here.
