Bookings

​Site bookings are essential and are accepted up to 12 months in advance of your wedding date. Some locations may be subject to particular conditions including maximum numbers of guests.

To book a site, please complete our Wedding Booking Form or speak to staff from your preferred location for more information.   

​​Cos​ts​​​

There are costs associated with holding a wedding in a national park, and these will depend on the location and features of your wedding.  Costs will be assessed based on your booking application.

All guests, including those getting married, are required to hold a valid park pass​.

​Marquees​ and receptions

It is possible at some sites to erect a marquee with the following guidelines:

  • Event set up and pack down must occur on the day of the function
  • The largest marquee size able to be erected is 5m x 15m
  • Marquees are to be supplied and erected by a commercial operator who is trained to do so in a safe manner
  • Site placement of equipment is to be determined in consultation with a Parks and Wildlife Service representative​.

​Need to​​ know

​Here are a few more need to know items to ensure your day runs smoothly:

  • While there might be multiple weddings held at your location on any one day, we like to ensure that you get your time to yourself, so please indicate the time of your ceremony on the application.  National parks are multi-use, so other parks users may be in the area
  • R​esponsible consumption of alcohol
  • Domestic animals or pets are not allowed in national parks
  • Discuss the use of bands,  public address systems, open flames and the use of flowers with a Parks and Wildlife Service representative.
