Nestled in a tranquil cove and framed by beautiful rocky reefs, the crescent of soft white sand that is Greenfield Beach makes for a truly magical wedding location. Located 3 hours’ drive from Sydney, this idyllic spot is within easy reach for guests from the city, but far enough to forget about everything but your special day.

With the turquoise waters of Jervis Bay as your backdrop, you’re sure to have stunning wedding photos. Behind the beach, the grassy picnic area is a delightful spot for guests to enjoy cocktails and canapes. There’s even a covered shelter nearby for those who fancy a bit of shade.

When it’s time, your guests can kick off their shoes to make castles in the sand, or go for a swim or snorkel along the reefs. Showers are on hand to wash off the salt and sand.

For those who like to explore, there’s White Sands walk and Scribbly Gum track with its captivating coastal views, and the option to explore further along Hyams Beach trail to the iconic Hyams Beach.

Another plus, Greenfield Beach and lawn is conveniently located close to shops and accommodation options in the seaside communities of Vincentia, Hyams Beach and Huskisson.
