ididjeridoo's Top 5 Aussie Wedding Locations

16 November 2009

Australia has so many locations ideal for weddings, making it a popular destination for international weddings as well as domestic travellers. A tropical island wedding in paradise, lush rainforest setting with cascading waterfalls or an opulent outback wedding with a difference, it's all here in Australia.

Here are ididjeridoo’s top five suggestions for your perfect Australian wedding location.

1. Sydney
Within the vibrant city of Sydney there are many excellent wedding venues and locations. One of the most popular areas is the beautiful Sydney Harbour, with the world renowned Opera House providing a unique backdrop for your wedding photos.
Other popular locations include beaches such as Bondi Beach, the Royal Botanic Gardens, or a tall ship wedding right on the harbour, providing a variety of stunning backdrops. You can even opt to marry on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

2. Gold Coast
The Gold Coast has an abundance of glamorous, idyllic wedding settings and offers a wide range of activities and hideaways for the perfect honeymoon. With many breathtaking beaches of miles of soft white sand and rugged headlands, ideal for a magical wedding and a Heritage listed Riverside Chapel at the Gold Coast Arts Centre, you’re spoiled for choice.
For uniquely opulence, experience the celebration atop the iconic Q1 Tower. Situated 230 metres above the Gold Coast, the Skylight Room on Level 78 of the iconic Q1 Tower offers floor to ceiling windows and breathtaking 360 degree views from the surf to the hinterland and beyond. Follow this with a luxury honeymoon at the totally decadent Palazzo Versace Hotel.

3. Cairns
Cairns, in north Queensland, is known for providing stunning wedding locations within a laid back, relaxed atmosphere. For a heavenly tropical island wedding setting, one of the many tranquil beaches such as Trinity Beach, Kewarra Beach or Palm Cove would be idea. Imagine your wedding photographs - crystal clear waves lapping the white powder-like sand, with palm trees lining the beach.
If you prefer a lush rainforest setting, complete with brightly coloured parrots watching from nearby trees, there are many choices within the Cairns region. There are also many picturesque chapels for those who want a traditional church wedding.

4. Port Douglas
Further north in Queensland is Port Douglas. The holiday hideaway for the rich and famous, Port Douglas offers an abundance of magical wedding locations, with the infamous Great Barrier Reef on one side and World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest on the other.
With mesmerising beaches and spectacular, serene rainforests, Port Douglas is known for its seclusion, with a number of 5 star hotels. There are many glorious beaches and secluded rainforest spots that are perfect for your wedding, along with numerous beautifully ornate chapels nestled amongst the stunning scenery.

5. Uluru
If you envisage a wedding with a difference the majestic Uluru (Ayers Rock) may be just the place to exchange your vows. Offering an amazing backdrop for your photographs, with a magnificent array of outback colours and a number of near-by 5 star resorts.
No matter what setting you prefer, you’ll find it in Australia.
