One of the many reasons we chose the beautiful Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat was so that our family and friends could stay onsite or nearby offsite with us for the duration of our wedding celebration!
We wanted to take the stress away from you of having to find somewhere to stay. So you will find below a few options if needed.
The Bush Retreat has stunning architecturally designed brand new onsite accommodation in ensuite, private, air-conditioned rooms. We have booked out all the accommodation exclusively for our wedding guests.
But overseas families/friends, bridesmaids etc.. will have priorities.
The cost for the weekend, everything included, per person, is $300.
For the duration of the celebration, we will have exclusive use of the 100 acre property, which includes a swimming pool, outdoor games area, guest lounge & kitchen, alfresco area, bonfire and sunset deck.
We would love for you to be part of our onsite wedding !
Video of the facilities
Unfortunately, we can't link the video to the page so if you would like to see the gorgeous place we will be spending time together, here is the LINK ! The video is in 3D for the moment as it burned down during the fire bush last year and is being rebuild. They are giving us updates all the time, which is great. It makes us feel part of it !
