A Romantic Destination Wedding Venue

We adore a destination wedding. And this amazing Estate in the Southern Highlands, NSW is just perfection.

Located just 1.5 hours from Sydney, Bendooley Estate may just be the destination wedding venue you are looking for:

  • This grand estate is set on 200 acres of beautifully preserved gardens and buildings

  • Stay on site in the luxuriously appointed cottages

  • For the past forty-years, within the Estate, the iconic bookstore Berkelouw Book Barn has operated successfully as a new, rare, second-hand and antiquarian bookshop – originally with a quaint teahouse and now with an atmospheric restaurant and the Cellar Door. It has evolved from a celebrated Berrima landmark into a popular tourist destination.

  • Bendooley Estate has a reputation as one of Australia’s premier estates for weddings. Nature’s seasons are on year-round show at the majestic estate.

  • Exchange your vows at the Estate in a choice of exquisite settings: the private gardens, the lake pavilion, or within the vineyard. If a church wedding is your preference, nearby are two charming stone churches in Berrima (and larger churches in Bowral).

  • Revel in Bendooley Estate’s premier selection of venues, bars and signature restaurant for your reception and wedding dinner.

Celebrate your special day at Bendooley Estate in spectacular fashion.

A Wedding Photographer's Dream

Set on over 200 acres, this wedding venue is a photographer's dream, with historic buildings, sculptured gardens, and those gorgeous country sunsets.

What could be more romantic than dancing against a sunset sky, strolling hand in hand amongst manicured gardens or mingling with your guests on the lawn.
