If you're looking for a beautiful outdoor venue for your wedding ceremony and/or wedding photography, Minnamurra Rainforest Centre offers 4 timeless locations to choose from. Three are along the Rainforest walk, which has a picturesque suspension bridge and elevated walkways winding through remnant rainforest. The 4th location is in the tranquil Riverside picnic area. Here is a map. In each setting you’ll enjoy the gentle sounds of river flowing over moss-coloured boulders, birdsong and the breeze whispering through leaves.

A grand 1000-year-old fig tree presides over it all, offering dappled shade and cool cover for your wedding party and guests. In subtropical rainforest, nature is cyclic, and this a magical place to start the next cycle of your life with your partner.

Located in the foothills of Jamberoo Valley, west of Kiama, Minnamurra Rainforest Centre is perfect for a spring or autumn wedding. Even if walkers pause to view your ceremony, it remains a peaceful and welcoming environment for you and your guests.
