More on Byron Bay Weddings

As one of the loveliest coastal towns in New South Wales and Australia, Byron Bay offers many gorgeous waterfront and beach wedding ceremony and reception venues.

Also, there are adorable waterfront villages, beautiful tropical flora, great seafood, and great surfing opportunities (great for the athletic couples and for the families on your guest list).

The area is known for its laid-back, bohemian attitude and vibe, but it’s also great for elegant, classy weddings! Don’t miss out on Cape Byron State Conservation Park and the Lighthouse, as well as the many beautiful, spotless beaches!

 

Popular Byron Bay Wedding Venues & Prices

There is quite a variety of wedding ceremony and reception venues available in the Byron Bay area, ranging from $2,500 – $12,000 (price may not including catering fees, decoration fees, wedding planning and coordination fees, etc.).

Most of the wedding venues in this region will be in the form of beach or waterfront weddings, estates, gardens, historic, and country, and most offer fantastic views of the ocean and hinterlands.

As always, we suggest making sure to include taxes, gratuities, and extra / hidden fees into your wedding venue budget.

 

Travel & Hotel Accommodations

There are some smaller airports in the Byron Bay area, including the Ballina Byron Gateway airport, which offers local and domestic flights.

We would suggest recommending your guests, especially those who are arriving from out-of-state or from international locations, to fly into either the Brisbane Airport or the Gold Coast airport, both larger and international hubs.

It takes approximately an hour and fifteen minutes to drive from the Gold Coast to Byron Bay, and two hours to drive down from Brisbane. Both the drives are lovely, with scenic views of the waters.

There are many great hotels in the Byron Bay area available for both you and your guests, ranging from approximately $40 – $320 per night. Generally, the closer the hotel is to the waterfront and to Cape Byron, the more expensive.

We love the Cape Beach House ($177 per night) and Outrigger Bay Apartments.

There are also Airbnb’s available in the area, starting from $20 per night.

 

Weather and Climate Considerations

Byron Bay, New South Wales, is quite warm throughout the year, but the warmest months (and the most popular for wedding ceremonies and receptions) are November to March.

It can get quite warm in these summer months, with average high temperature of 28oC in January—so you may wish to look for venues with air conditioning, or outdoor marquees with fans!

The cooler months are through June to August, but the lowest expected temperatures during this month does not dip below an average of 12oC.

Byron Bay also experiences quite a bit of rain, with the most rainfall occurring in the summer months, from December to April, with an average of approximately 10 days of rain each month.

We strongly suggest asking your wedding venue if they have a back-up / plan B for inclement weather, especially for outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions—although a little bit of rain, with some cute umbrellas, would make for some adorable wedding photos!
