South Australia Unique Wedding Venues
Built in 1893, Adare House radiates old world charm with its stone architecture, high ceilings, and extensive leadlights and stained glass windows. Other features include rustic wooden floors, ornate fireplaces, sweeping staircases, and a balcony. Various wedding packages that suit any budget are available. The grounds have been converted into a quiet boutique caravan park where wedding guests can find accommodation during an extended visit.
Discovered in 1845, Blanche Cave is located in Naracoorte Caves National Park. The cave is World and National Heritage listed. A favourite gathering place for locals in the nineteenth century, the cave is still used for many types of functions today. Wedding ceremonies are held in the cave and receptions take place in the park or Caves Café. Park staff are available to help couples organise their wedding celebration.
The National Railway Museum, Australia's largest railway museum, displays 100 exhibits, encourages visitors to climb into the cabs of giant steam engines, provides free train rides, and welcomes couples to use the museum function room too. The Cafeteria Car also offers a casual dining space with milk bar-style seating and themed decor from a twentieth century rock and roll era. The tourist railway runs from Semaphore to Fort Glanville, past the sand dunes and beaches.
The National Wine Center of Australia, a public exhibition building about winemaking, has a tasting room with 120 different wines. The venue includes three wedding ceremony sites, The Stables Lawn, The Vines Lawn, and Terrace Courtyard, as well as six function rooms. The largest space is Hickinbotham Hall which overlooks the outdoor terrace area. Highlighted by a stunning wooden ceiling that rises to 23 metres, the hall also features 150-year-old jarrah floorboards and a rammed earth wall.
Couples who desire a unique site for their wedding ceremony and reception can find what they are looking for in South Australia.
