Brisbane, Queensland, is home to the Brisbane River and the beautiful Moreton Bay, which makes for plenty of great waterfront and beach wedding venue spaces in the area. Plus, the tropical climate, which offers some of the warmest days in all of Australia, provides the perfect setting for an outdoor beach wedding—perfect for a low-key, bohemian barefoot ceremony or something a little more fancy on the deck of a marina. There’s a beach wedding venue for each bride and groom, and their respective, unique tastes in Brisbane, but here are our top six favourites.

Parting Notes

When you opt for any of the lovely wedding venues listed above, or whether you find your own beach wedding venue, you may wish to avoid the summer months. Brisbane is quite warm year-round, but the summers can reach a high of 30oC, which could be uncomfortable for you and your guests unless you are planning an evening wedding. Further, the summer months experience more precipitation than the other seasons. We suggest hosting your festivities in the winter or spring instead.
