Countryside wedding venues in South Australia range from rustic to luxurious.
Merino sheep graze in the open plains or in the wooded areas of Anlaby Station, a property that includes a shearing shed, slaughterhouse, shearers' quarters and manager's house as well as a 10-acre garden. Wedding vows are exchanged under a Chinese elm on the front garden terrace, and drinks and canapés are served on the Colonnade, a black and white marble tiled terrace. Clydesdale Pavilion, a stone building with a corrugated iron roof and brick floor that once housed 24 working Clydesdales, is the site for wedding receptions.
Binna Burra Mountain Lodge is situated in the World Heritage listed Lamington National Park. The park features 20,600 hectares of unspoiled Australian bush and rainforest as well as views of the coast and Numinbah Valley. The venue has a selection of ceremony venues, reception venues, and accommodation styles. In addition, catering options, that suit all budgets, range from a sit-down meal in the Clifftop Dining Room to an Aussie BBQ in the historic Barn.
Established in 1856, Glanville Hall is an elegant Victorian Tudor manor that was built for Captain John Hart, South Australia’s first premier. The venue offers six outdoor and four indoor ceremony locations while receptions can be held in one of the luxurious function rooms or outdoors with a marquee. Couples have exclusive use of the grounds and manor during their wedding celebration.
Golfers at the 51-hectare Victor Harbor Golf Club enjoy sharing the space with wildlife. Many species of birds are spotted on the grounds, and kangaroos feed on the grass as golfers walk. Wedding receptions are held in Brophy’s Restaurant & Function Center which offers views of Encounter Bay, including the Southern Ocean, The Bluff , and Granite, Seal and Wright Islands. Couples can have exclusive use of the restaurant, if desired.
The green countryside, ranging from the open plains to the Australian bush, provides a beautiful ‘canvas’ for a wedding ceremony and reception.
