Weddings at Seacliff House, Gerringong

Congratulations on your engagement!

Enjoy world-class ocean and beach views from a magical entertainment setting at the beautiful Seacliff House, Gerringong. Rarely will you find a property, with such a spectacular and commanding view of the coastline, perfect to host weddings of up to 150 guests. Seacliff House is affordable luxury that will leave you and your guests greatly impressed with the magnificent South Coast. 

Positioned in pastureland with sweeping views to Werri Beach, Werri Lagoon and the pristine Pacific Ocean, this large and comfortable home, set on 5 acres, comes complete with a dramatic in-ground pool and split-level sandstone entertainment area.

The manicured grassed lawn stretching beyond the glass-fenced 15 metre saltwater pool is reminiscent of the fairway on one of the world's best golf courses, Pebble Beach California! 

280 degree views take in the ocean, the escarpment at the back of Gerringong which is filled with rainforests to explore and south to the township of Gerringong and the beach. Relax and drink in this breath-taking panorama. 

Seacliff House is an exclusive private property that will be booked out completely for all your friends and family to share in your special day. There are many locations within the grounds in which you can say "I do": a wonderful flat area of land to place a marquee overlooking the fantastic view plus plenty of lush outdoor grounds to enjoy lawn games and pre-dinner canapés! 

Seacliff House is only a 5 minute drive from the township of Gerringong. Further locations for your wedding or after ceremony photo shoot might include Werri Beach, South Werri Rock Platform, South Werri Headland, Boat Harbour Gerringong, Minnamurra Rainforest, Kiama Blowhole and Lookout, Saddleback Mountain Lookout and other beaches, gardens and rural spots for the perfect photo backdrop.

Your guests have plenty of accommodation options in one of our many holiday homes in the area.

Alcohol

Seacliff House is not a licensed venue. You are able to supply your own alcohol and soft drinks at the property. Bar staff can be arranged through your caterer or we can assist with contact details, all staff handling alcohol on site need to have their RSA, and we require a copy prior to your event.

A maximum of 10 cars are allowed on site for functions, so we require you to arrange a bus hire company to take guests to and from the property. Gerringong Buses or Stuarts Coaches are our recommendations, please contact them direct to arrange a quote.

Rubbish Removal & Black Bin Hire

It is your responsibility to remove all rubbish after the function, including a complete search of rubbish in the gardens and across the whole grounds. Excess garbage removal fees will be charged and bond may be retained if this is not adhered to. We recommend you hire garbage bins from your local event hire company.
