A Complete Bush Bank Experience
Finalist for the Illawarra & Southern Highlands Brides Choice Awards 2020-2021
Winner of the Venue Award in the Illawarra South Coast Brides Choice Awards 2018
Our stunning wedding venue is a historic working cattle farm located 5 minutes south of Kiama on 61.5 acres of rolling hills and sweeping gullies, overlooking Loves Bay and the deep blue ocean.
The 1850 Blue Stone Cottage function room is both rustic and elegant, with exposed rockwork above the picture rail and plastered walls with Dutch Cathedral style blue mountain ash wooden ceilings and cooling fans for the summer. We have a fully equipped commercial kitchen in the old dairy that services both the cottage and the marquee.
We have a permanent marquee onsite and all the hire equipment needed but the decorating choice is left up to each couple to bring in so their individual personal tastes can shine through to create their own very special décor and day.
We encourage guests to feel at home and become part of our extended family if they choose to, otherwise their privacy is assured at all times and they have the space to remain private and contained.

My partner and I just got married at Bush Bank, what a delightful experience the whole way through. Janice and Sonya are so wonderful and accommodating and really looked after us through the stages of prepping the wedding, not to mention the day was so perfect. If you’re after gorgeous gardens, spectacular views of rolling green hills and the ocean on a historical sight, look no further. We could not have asked for a more perfect day, and we couldn’t have done it in a better place. We truely thank you all for giving us your wonderful place for our wedding day!”

“We could not have asked for a better wedding at Bushbank and are so grateful for everything you have done. The grounds and facilities were fantastic and Janice was incredible the way she had everything under control and the whole day went by without a glitch. Communication was excellent and of course the food to die for. Family and friends are still telling us how much fun they had and how much they were amazed by the location and view.
Thank you so much again for everything and giving us the best ever wedding!”
