Weddings and Ceremonies

If you’re organising a wedding, you must follow the NSW Government’s current rules for ceremonies and receptions and have a COVID Safety Plan in place if required.

Rules for weddings can change at short notice, and we may be required to change or cancel your booking to meet any restrictions in place at the time of your booked activity. We will discuss this with you if the situation arises.

Wollongong Botanic Garden makes a spectacular outdoor venue for weddings, commitment and celebration of life ceremonies.

Any area of the Garden can be booked for an event, and we have many beautiful options for large or small groups.

An equipment package that includes 30 white chairs, a signing table and white cloth can be hired for your ceremony. Please discuss if this package is available at your ceremony location when you call.

Please visit our Fees and Charges page and read our Wedding Ceremony Terms and Conditions for more information.

Wedding photography

We have some of the Illawarra’s most beautiful settings for wedding photography.

Wedding parties are welcome to take photographs in the Garden, even when the ceremony is not held on our grounds. There are no fees, and bookings aren’t required, but we ask that you follow a few simple rules:

  • No alcohol on site
  • No vehicles may enter the Garden. The wedding party can be dropped off at the main entrance, but your driver will need to park within our car park, or on-street.
  • No throwing of confetti, rice, petals, etc.
  • You must not disrupt any other weddings or events within the Garden.

See the Rules section on our FAQs page for other conditions that apply to all visitors.
