Botanic Gardens Trust, Sydney, Australia



With stunning views, natural settings, and beautiful gardens, the Australian Botanic Garden is south-west Sydney’s premier outdoor location for weddings, functions and events.

Situated just 45 minutes from the CBD and accessible from all areas of Sydney, it is the ideal location for your wedding ceremony, reception and photos.

The Garden has ten superb locations for ceremonies and with stunning locations such as the Water Garden, Room with a View and Sundial Hill, your wedding ceremony will be the talk of all your guests.

But don’t be limited to locations we have chosen. Feel free to hold your wedding in any other publicly accessible location on-site.

And to keep the memories forever make sure you inspect the other 1000 acres of photographic backdrops to choose from. You can be assured your wedding will be one that not only you, but also your guests, will never forget.

On-site is Melaleuca House whose qualified staff can assist with your reception to give you a one-stop experience on your wedding day. Or you may prefer to choose a silk-lined marquee on the popular Marquee Lawn. The lawn is situated next to Lake Sedgewick and provides not only water views but a very private setting for you and your guests.

The Wedding Knot

Celebrate your undying affection for your special someone on our newest artistic installation. Built to last, this traditional dry stone structure will be crafted in sandstone boulders. The stones will provide a metaphor for eternal love as the wall loops around over and under itself in an illusion of forever.

Designed and constructed by our own master Waller Geoff Duggan, the Wedding Knot was generously funded by the Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens. Click here for more information on this sculpture.

To inquire about attaching your own engraved plaque, poem or anniversary message contact the visitor centre on 02 4634 7935.
