» Ceremony


Welcome to Audley Valley, 

We live and work on Dharawal country. We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land and pay our respects to all First Nations people of the past, present and future.


We are so grateful to offer you the choice of 9 different wedding ceremony locations nestled here, in the Royal National Park.


“Thanks for a superb wedding George, and the whole team at Audley. The day was even better than we had hoped, genuinely one of the best days of our lives. We have so many brilliant memories of the day” – Tom & Jess, Nov 2022.

Locations here at Audley


Iron Bark Flat
This sunny riverside site under the historic plane tree is one of our most popular spots to stage a wedding. Iron Bark Flat has uninterrupted views of the river and is a stones throw to our venue, providing guests easy access to the cafe before the ceremony.

Fig Tree
Hosting a wedding ceremony under this gorgeous fig tree is impossibly romantic. Your guests will be invited to walk over a carpet of leaves, crackling underfoot, to get to this secluded riverside spot.

“Brett and I would like to say a big thank you for making our day so special! 
Everything was amazing, absolutely everything. 
We had a coffee with Dean this morning to say thanks, he’s a beautiful man doing amazing work. What a joy to have so many wonderful people involved in the day. 
Thanks to James for this outstanding venue and we hope to catch up soon. 
Much love and happiness.”

Dance Hall Veranda
Wet weather, no problem! We have the perfect forest backdrop from the Dance Hall veranda. With an open-air balcony, this location is fully covered, surrounded by forest and equally as beautiful.
