More on Yarra Valley Weddings

The Yarra Valley is popular for its wines (chardonnay, sparkling, and pinot noir), its beautiful parks, wildlife, and among Melbournians and Victorians as a lovely wedding destination. This region is located about 90 km away from Melbourne, and is ideal for winery and country / rustic, weddings, but also has luxurious estates, golf clubs, and gardens.

 

Popular Yarra Valley Wedding Venues & Prices

You can expect to find many winery wedding venues in the Yarra Valley, that offer spectacular views of the rolling hills, rivers (including the Yarra River), and mountain ranges. Most wedding venues in this region will charge between $95 – $225 per head, so for a 120-person wedding, you’re looking at $11,400 – $27,000 (before venue hire, taxes, gratuities, and all other prices; this price is also reflective of those venues that offer catering).

 

Travel & Hotel Accommodations

The closest airports to the Yarra Valley region are the Melbourne (Tullamarine) Airport and Essendon Airport, both of which offer and connect to international and domestic flights, making it convenient for those couples looking for a destination wedding or for those couples who have family and friends throughout Australia.
