Hickson Street lookout provides a dazzling backdrop overlooking Burwood Beach and Glenrock State Conservation Area to Awabakal Nature Reserve. Only 2hrs north of Sydney, the lookout is within easy reach for guests from the city, yet far enough to get away from it all and enjoy your special day.

This secluded spot is reached via a short bush track from the road. The bush opens out into panoramic coastal views, making it a magical location to say “I do”. The spectacular ocean and headland outlook from here is hard to top, and acts as a blank canvas for your wedding. Whether it’s rustic charm or opulent elegance that you’re after, Hickson Street lookout can accommodate all you envisioned for your big day.

After they’ve settled in with a flute of champagne in-hand, your family and friends can watch on as you walk down the golden sandstone steps, surrounded by an awe-inspiring bush setting. After descending the natural aisle, hold your ceremony above the expansive Pacific Ocean.

You and your guests will be amazed at this hidden space. After the ceremony, you won’t need to go anywhere for fabulous wedding photos. The dreamy and colourful landscapes here are perfect to snap memories of your special day.

After the wedding ceremony you and your guests can retreat to the nearby Baileys Cottage.

This is a sought-after location, and only 1 booking per day is permitted. You’ll need to book as soon as you decide on the date of your wedding or event.
