Plan the perfect coastal wedding on the Great Ocean Road!

Your wedding is a momentous occasion that you will remember for years to come. And with some of the best beaches in Australia, what better place than the Great Ocean Road for the most picture-perfect celebration of love!

There is so much to do when planning the perfect wedding, so we’ve decided to share some of our favourite local legends to take the stress out of planning the coastal wedding of your dreams.

🗹 Coastal Ceremony & Reception Venue

Great Ocean Road Resort

Say ‘I Do’ then celebrate at this beautiful coastal resort. With the beach on its doorstep, Great Ocean Road Resort is the perfect transition from ceremony to reception. For those preferring an indoor ceremony option, The Conservatory features large windows looking out on the luscious landscaping and a skylight above allowing so much natural light to come into the space!

Head into the bright and airy Victoria Room, the perfect canvas to transform into the wedding of your dreams. More intimate weddings fit perfectly in The Dining Room, a private setting with a grand 22-seat timber banquet table, the ideal size for a micro-wedding.

🗹 Hen’s & Bachelorette Party

Sunnymead Hotel

Treat your wedding party with a groovy Hen’s weekend away or... post-wedding recovery AKA the after-afterparty. Sunnymead Hotel has everything you need to treat your bridal party to the ultimate weekend away before (or after) your big day! And this retro-inspired venue has colour in abundance.

Live it up by the poolside bar and outdoor firepit with a cocktail party, or take it indoors for a mouth-watering sit-down feast. With a delectable Asian fusion menu, onsite restaurant Santara will serve up fusion flavours for indoor or outdoor functions.

Finish off your ultimate hen’s getaway with a social spa experience at Indie Spa! Groups are catered for with unique and endless options. Choose to get steamy in the Rasul while applying body scrubs and muds, soak it up in the light-filled bathhouse, receive individual pampering in one of three themed treatment rooms, or sip cocktails in their funky lounge.
